Because StreamLinx, LLC, is a young, cloud software success story dedicated to solving some of the world's most vexing energy and environmental problems and we are on the hunt for a QA analyst that thrives on "breaking things" to help our high performing team create greater solutions.

StreamLinx is the maker of SnapCount, the mobile and cloud-based platform that accelerate the adoption of energy efficiency and clean technologies in commercial and industrial buildings.

Our customers include energy retrofit companies,professional engineering firms, energy service companies, clean power entities,public utilities, and electronics distributors. They all share the same objective of reducing energy usage in commercial facilities. And our software speeds that adoption like none other

Additionally, you have the chance to expand your QA career by assisting with our automation efforts.

Specific responsibilities include:

* Within the first four weeks:

* Participate in testing of individual defects and manual regression testing runs
* Document defects found in JIRA for Dev reproduction/review/correction
* Write test cases for new JIRA tickets in TestRail
* Within the first 90 days:

* Bridge the awareness of up and coming features to our Customer Success team to empower them to confidently handle our customer questions on new releases

That's the work. Now what about the work-life? We believe in empowering energy optimization through honoring our commitments to our customers and our team.

What will it take to join our team?

Realistically, we need someone with at least 1-2 years of prior experience in a Software QA or similar role. Most important is having a whole systems approach to your testing process ensuring that you understand how the entire application is affected by changes. Experience with TestRail or similar test case management software is a plus. The ideal candidate has worked in a JAVA environment and has experience in SQL or other relational database systems. We need someone that is fanatical about finding bugs and creating scenarios to demonstrate them. Practice thriving in an agile environment would be very helpful, but not required if you are a quick study of new tools/techniques. You'll be working with people, both internal and customers, so your ability to understand the problem at hand, envision the end result, and create a solution to fill the need is critical.
