Animoto is looking for testers who would love to find new ways to break everything from our website to apps to our rendering engine and more! We need testers who will be comfortable inside the engineering team, working with teams throughout the rest Animoto, and listening to customers to find new ways to improve the test team and the product in general.
The testing for STEs will be largely manual and semi-automated because we need to harness human brains to find our UI bugs
Be part of the entire SDLC, finding better ways to test at all stages and improve our process
Determine the types of testing your area needs, when it needs them, and how that integrates with the rest of engineering
Determine how test results should be reported for your area to give everyone the fastest, most useful feedback about the state of the project
