Job description
PLEASE NOTE: USA based workers only. Despite being 100% remote, we can only accept US-based applicants for this role. Please do not submit a resume if your are not a USA resident and located here 100% of the time. No agencies, please.

Cellpoint develops and manages IoT software and hardware for distributed control and data collection applications. To support our custom application hardware platform, we are looking for a software QA engineer to integrate with our development team and several third party platform partners and stakeholders. Your role will be focused to work on our team for a FAANG client, directed by our team lead developer. This team is growing and evolving so you will have growth opportunities if you also have software coding and engineering skills in the appropriate languages.
We need a QA Engineer who is not afraid of jumping head-first into a custom-built application hardware platform, understanding what has been built, and what needs completion. This role will include tasks which are ever-evolving and changing, as the hardware platform is never finished and continually adds new features and functionality driven by client needs.

Formal education is not required, but may be taken into consideration. Attitude and commitment are much more important than certifications in our selection process. We will be interested in viewing a public-facing Github / Gitlab etc. Be prepared to discuss any contributions you may have in your interview.
The day-to-day operations of the QA Engineer would include:
Collecting reports of system failures, reconciling these reports against known issues and limitation in the platform, and determining if a new issue or regression has occurred
Receiving reports of issues in development for new features not yet pushed to production and digging into the underlying issues to provide recommendations to the development team on what can be fixed or improved
Evaluating the existing build pipelines and existing unit tests and adding new unit tests as needed (continual work)
Performing aging and manual testing on a real-world application hardware system, simulating production environments and looking for new issues and edge cases.
