QA Engineer at Noom
At Noom, we use scientifically proven methods to help our users create healthier lifestyles, and manage important conditions like Obesity, Type II Diabetes, and Hypertension. Our Engineering team is at the forefront of this challenge, solving complex technical and UX problems on our mobile apps that center around habits, behavior, and lifestyle, and doing so with a focus on quality and usability.
We are looking for a QA Engineer to join our QA Team and work closely with one or more product teams to monitor and improve quality across all of our products, both internal and external, used by hundreds of coaches and hundreds of thousands of users every day. As QA Engineer, you’ll work with our engineering teams to ensure that key features and product changes are built to spec and thoroughly tested before we release them to our coaches and users. You’ll also work on improving post-launch quality by digging into bug reports and helping to ensure that we focus our attention on the highest-impact issues affecting our users; along with helping to iterate on core quality processes within the QA Team and wider Engineering team to consistently improve how we operate.

- Interest in being the primary advocate for end-to-end quality within the context of an Engineering team, working alongside members of the team to build quality further into the feature development pipeline
