More detail? OK , this is the sort of Tester we are looking for.

We?re after an experienced software tester who is excited by the challenge of testing software at scale. You?re at home in an Agile environment and your inquisitive nature and desire to dig into the unknown are two of your strengths.

You should have a deep understanding of various testing approaches, including exploratory testing and automation.

Our programmers are serious about testing too and write their own unit tests as they code.

You will work with people who care about well written, test-driven, clean code, delightful user experiences. The team works very closely, and like to pair on pretty much everything.
