You have experience collaborating with frontend, backend, and test engineers implementing automation frameworks that both support the technical team and critique the product. You understand the purpose and tradeoffs of different types of automated tests and can implement a scalable solution to best support the application. You are open to the idea that the role of test engineering is not to be a safety net to catch failures, but to accelerate the team by addressing bottlenecks in the system. You are passionate and experienced in building out the foundation of a formal QA framework and team, with demonstrable experience in doing the same in previous organizations that were in a similar high-growth stage.

-Perform manual acceptance testing when appropriate.
-Assist in building our CI/CD pipeline.
-Implement system and application monitoring for new and existing applications.
