We encourage everyone to find the process that works for them. We don't have set hours, just things that need to get done. We are highly collaborative (and we're all very good friends, so that helps) when necessary, but we try to limit meetings so as to allow as much time and space to let our builders, build.
From there, we are looking for a QA engineer who will be doing the following:
- Build test and infrastructure tools and processes
- Create, maintain and execute test plans and test cases
- Develop and maintain automated test scripts
- Participate in code/bug review processes
- Identify areas of optimization
- Mine issues from log files
Skills & Requirements
Below are some "requirements". But we use that term lightly. If you have all/some/or have alternative approaches to solving QA issues, that's fine too. Let us know.
- Passion for finding bugs and making something BETTER
- Intuitive sense of UX
- Comprehensive knowledge of various QA methods (Functional, Integration, Regression, etc.), and when to use them
- Experience with automation frameworks such as Selenium, UIAutomation (Xcode Instrument), Telerik, etc.
- Experience working with cross-functional teams
- Experience with cross-browser-compatibility issues, bug tracking systems, version control systems
- Able to manage multiple environments (development, testing, staging, production)
- Solid experience architecting data sets to exercise both common and edge cases of a system
Nice to have things:
- Experience testing mobile applications
- *nix skills
- AWS administration experience
- MySQL / NoSQL

Our aim is to make the discovery of things to do and places to go far more efficent, personal, and connected than what the market currently offers. We have just entered a very "soft launch". We have a lot we'd like to accomplish, and thus are excited to be growing our team.
Of course, since it's vital to us that everyone own their work, we give stock to everyone who works at Yello.
If you aren't in love with what you do right now, and any of this sounds intrigiung, I urge you to reach out and let us know. We look forward to telling you more about who we are, and why we do what we do.
We hope to hear from you soon.
