QA Automation Engineer
Mailshake is seeking a highly motivated QA Automation Engineer to help us ensure a high-level of quality for our simple yet powerful sales engagement software for sales professionals. You’ll work closely with the QA Engineering Manager to develop and maintain several automated test suites, as well as maintain and monitor daily test runs in a pipeline and report defects as necessary.
About the Position

This is a remote-only position and thus requires the ability to get work done with minimal supervision, but you should also be able to communicate effectively with other members of the team on an as-needed basis. You should have a steady pace of writing automated test scripts, and in-depth experience with performing manual tests and verifying that features and bugs have satisfied acceptance criteria.
