QA Engineer: Manual Tester
Engineering & Operations | San Francisco, CA
You are a QA Engineer: Highly skilled in manual testing, analytical and exemplary problem solving abilities.
Like our wikis and communities, Wikia is passionate, high-energy, and collaborative. Wikia is one of the largest Creative Commons-licensed sites in the world, as we maintain over 300,000 wikis across an impressive array of subjects, spanning all aspects of entertainment, gaming, and lifestyle. We are rated as a Quantcast Top 50, ComScore Top 100, and Nielsen Top 10 Social Media Site and are read by over 70 million unique visitors a month.
This role requires a commitment to quality and precision across our massive platform that is fast moving and globally distributed. Writing manual test plans and executing against them will help us achieve high-quality low-error work for our web pages and apps. Testing will encompass identifying, tracking, and communicating defects within the code and QA processes, as well as delivering resolutions to problems that arise. You’ll be a part of a passionate development environment and co-work with our engineers, product management, project management departments, and your fellow testers based in Poland. We’ll even fly you to Poland a couple times a year to work alongside the team!
You are a self-starter who has better-than-excellent communication skills and your colleagues would describe you as outgoing, flexible, and diplomatic. At least 1 year of your career has been spent testing software and it would be great if some of that time was focused on web based testing. Beyond exceptional abilities in manual testing, we would love it if you have any basic software development skills or have worked in an Agile environment. You’ve done some automated testing you say? Even better!
Unlike most startups, our exciting platform is also coupled with a strong work life balance. You’ll have the opportunity to shape the revenue stream of the company, technology, and products, while having fun. For your expertise, we will offer a competitive base salary, full benefits, and big play on equity. Our dog-friendly digs are located in the SOMA area of San Francisco (between BART and CalTrain), come with a stocked pantry, a gaming room, and we also offer lunch hour yoga classes. If you enjoy pop culture and gaming, working for Wikia will allow you to work on what you love.
