Software QA Engineer (Web & Tool)

Company: Shaper Tools, inc.
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: January 27, 2023

Job Description:

Based in San Francisco with offices in Stuttgart, Germany, Shaper was founded in 2012 to make precision cutting easy and accessible to craftspeople everywhere, beginning with a handheld CNC router called Origin. Today, Shaper supports thousands of woodworkers and craftspeople around the globe with the simple approach of developing tools to meet users' needs, rather than expecting users to conform to the tools. We're looking for a creative and technical QA Engineer to join our QA team and help maintain our high bar of quality. You should have experience shipping web software and/or hardware products that leverage custom embedded software and be eager to contribute throughout the entire quality assurance process. This position will work in conjunction with QA leads across both our embedded and web software. The position will be hands-on; you'll be testing and validating our latest products and features on a daily basis. Your input and validation will be critical to ensuring the quality and trust of Shaper's product lines. You'll join our team in our workspace in San Francisco's SoMa district. You'll have access to our 5000-square-foot workshop which is fully kitted out with all the woodworking machinery you could ever wish for (including Origin). This position does allow for working from home, but will also require regular in-person work using equipment in the Shaper workshop. The Job

  • Contribute to both our web and embedded software quality assurance program
  • Act as a centerpiece of collaboration for engineers, product management, and customer service to ensure product excellence
  • Create, modify and execute tests to validate the quality of Shaper's software products
  • Provide feedback and collaborate with our Engineering and Product teams as the first customer of our work
  • Partner in automating current manual QA processes and developing new ones
  • Track key quality metrics to measure and monitor product performanceYou
    • A can-do attitude and knack for understanding how things work and break
    • 2 years (or more) of SQA or System Test experience in the consumer hardware/software or robotic industries
    • Shipped products with high-quality results
    • Good understanding of SQA methodologies & practices
    • Experience with issue-tracking software (Jira or similar)
    • Experience with test case creation software (Testrail or similar) Although we do our best to list everything we are looking for in a candidate, we are very likely missing skills and/or attributes that could make you a great fit for the role. Research has shown that women and other marginalized groups are less likely to apply if they don't clearly meet every requirement. This means we both might miss out on a great opportunity-it never hurts to take a chance and apply today.
