Test Engineer - San Francisco, CA
Credit Karma is a mission-driven company, focused on championing financial progress for our more than 100 million members in the U.S., Canada and U.K. While we're best known for pioneering free credit scores, our members turn to us for tips as they work on their financial goals, including helping them monitor their credit, identity monitoring, searching for credit cards, shopping for loans (car, home and personal), filing their taxes with Credit Karma Tax and growing their savings* -- all for free. Credit Karma has grown significantly through the years: we've added more than 70 million members in the last five years alone and now have more than 1,100 employees across our offices in San Francisco, Charlotte, Los Angeles, Leeds, London and soon Oakland.
We are looking for a quick-thinking, quality enthusiast who understands releasing great software is not just about reactive testing. As a Test Engineer at Credit Karma’s San Francisco office, you’ll be proactively assessing and mitigating risks for our Web and Service platform releases, specifically for one of our core teams. You’ll be solving big quality challenges, coaching Software Engineers and Team Members in the art of quality testing and helping to create a long term vision of quality features for our members. You are a passionate member of the team who wants to have high impact; looking for a hands-on technical career with both manual and automated testing.
This isn’t just about “Quality Assurance”; we want you to help us create a better product and proactively improve our quality efforts on the whole.
