Senior Quality Assurance Test Engineer Contractor

Planorama plans and designs the UI/UX of software applications through modern product management and design practices. We focus on user-focused UI/UX design, and deliver everything the development and QA teams need to execute.

Our customers are generally U.S.-based and come from a variety of industry verticals.

Our QA test engineers…

  • THINK BIG, WORK DETAILED: Love to understand the big picture, and at the same time, think through the details and boundary conditions that someone could encounter as the use the application
  • HONEST: Speak up when something doesn’t look or feel right
  • DRIVEN: Challenge themselves and the team to learn and do better
  • COLLABORATIVE: Communicate well and often, and are used to working in remote teams
  • PROCESS-ORIENTED: Understand the value of process, versus being a “lone ranger”

If this sounds like you, and you’re available for at least 10 hours/week remote contract work, let’s talk.
