UPDATE (11/5/12): This position has been filled! We were flooded with applications (just over 100), so it was a very tough call. Thanks to all who applied!
We’re on a hiring blitz, of sorts.
As the popularity of YNAB grows, so also grows our need to have a top-notch quality assurance process. That is where you come in.
You Would be:
- Writing functional tests for the mobile and desktop platforms.
- Executing those tests on the various platforms.
- Doing exploratory testing.
You’re Who We’re Looking for if you:
- Are detail-oriented, process-driven (slightly OCD?) person who will test, test, and re-test our desktop, iPhone, and Android software.
- Have formal testing experience.
- Have access to a variety of platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS and Android)
- Are available part-time (this is not a full-time position).
- Work well in a remote environment. YNAB has no central hub. The most people we have in any state is two (Maine, and Utah). You do not need to be US-based.
- Thrive on instructions like, “We need to formalize our QA process around each release candidate of our software. Any suggestions?”
- Have excellent written and spoken English (accents are fine!)
- Bonus Points: You use and love YNAB.
- Double Bonus Points: You’ve found a few bugs in YNAB ;)
- Compensation would be hourly and based on your experience.
- This would be a part-time position, as an independent contractor.
- You would set your own schedule, hours, etc.
- You would provide your own equipment (some exceptions to this would be if we needed testing on a particular device for some future efforts).
- Your cover letter can be your email. No need to send something separate.
- Send your resume in PDF form.
- Include “QA Superstar” in the subject line of your email. If you don’t, we won’t read your email.
- Applications should go to: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Also, please complete the following two questions:
- Please report on a bug you’ve found in the latest version of YNAB. Write it up the same way you’d write up a bug if you were a member of the team.
- What is one of your favorite non-fiction books? What did you learn from it?
