As a Software Quality Assurance Engineer, you will be responsible for ensuring that webCemeteries software is released at the highest quality it can be so our customers can focus on serving families who are going through a very difficult time. You will be working with the engineering team to ensure that new features that are being developed are meeting the requirements defined by our customers and end-users. This role is perfect for someone who is focused on details and ensuring a high level of customer experience.

You will use a variety of tools including Jira (software engineering project management workflow), your editor of choice (e.g. VSCode, JetBrains Rider, VIM), and a variety of testing software - many of which you will help define in your first year in this role.
