Role overview

*Boston or Portland are preferred but we are also open to full remote under the right circumstances*

SimSpace is looking for a QA Engineer to join our growing team and help us shape the future of realistic environments used for cyber security testing, training, and tool development. This individual will be responsible for defining and implementing best-practice QA strategies for all phases of the application lifecycle. This includes requirement reviews, test planning, testing, systems engineering, test documentation, and execution of the test - at first by themselves and later working with or supervising other testers. The ideal candidate will have experience with modern software QA methods and be able to provide significant input into identifying the tools and processes needed to increase release efficiency as our product responsibilities grow and release cycles accelerate.

This individual will thrive in an environment that requires strong problem-solving skills and independent self-direction, coupled with an aptitude for team collaboration and open communication. The ideal candidate will be able to advocate for improvements to the QA process to company leadership and work closely with the Product and Engineering teams to address issues before they reach our valued customers. They will also have experience in a fast-paced and innovative environment where needs and requirements can change rapidly.

We are seriously disrupting the status quo for Cyber Security Ranges to allow companies to better understand their risk and improve through practice and experimentation. We are a fast-moving company that needs the right kind of talent and determination to join our team. We are protective of our company culture and will carefully consider how well you fit in. We’re a start-up that must ship. There are real technical challenges, but if it were easy, anyone could do it. We need your talent to succeed.

Our QA team will primarily be located in Boston, MA or Portland, OR to benefit from in-person interaction with colocated QA Engineers, Product and Design team staff.

You will:

  • Work closely with the software development team to implement testing methods and validate test cases. Ensure direct ‘black box’ testing is complementary to what is being covered by unit and ‘white box’ testing.
  • Develop methods for automated and manual testing of software applications. Mentor software testers on efficient strategies and tools for achieving quality and testing efficiency goals.
  • Develop and maintain product test plans and test cases that are effective at trapping defects so other team members can run them with confidence.
  • Assist in understanding and replicating customer issues. Implement test cases that reflect how applications should perform to delight customers.
  • You will provide thought leadership for Engineering and Product in all areas of software quality, including the deployment process. You will identify meaningful trends and practices so we can release quickly and with high confidence.
  • Write test automation code using QA tools and scripting languages.

You are a good fit if you have:

  • 3+ years as a Software QA Engineer and/or a Software Test Engineer
  • BS in an engineering discipline such as Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Software Engineering
  • Command of manual/exploratory testing practices and experience in testing automation development and architecture
  • Previous experience growing or leading a team is desired

Your skills:

  • Self-starter that is highly motivated, accepting of other opinions, and can work effectively in a team
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • Experience using QA scripting software such as Selenium or similar frameworks
  • Experience using Cypress
  • Experience using JIRA or similar software to create bug or defect reports with detailed reproduction steps
  • Experience delivering software in an agile, CI-based environment
  • Basic understanding of computer security and networking concepts
  • U.S. citizenship as required by our existing U.S. Government contracts

Benefits:

  • Competitive salary and benefits (medical, dental)
  • Equity options in SimSpace
  • Flexible hours provided you overlap the main part of the day to interact with others
  • One day a week telecommute -- we value in-person interaction


In compliance with federal law, all persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification document form upon hire.
