Quality Engineering (QE) Specialist

REDspace is a custom software development company. We build cutting-edge streaming platforms and user experiences that are transforming the media & entertainment industry for clients such as WarnerMedia, Paramount, Sony, and IBM.  Leveraging our extensive, world-class experience, we help transform other industries by integrating existing systems with consumer media innovations and emerging technologies such as video, voice, mobile, machine learning, and gaming tech.

As a QE Specialist, you will help define a quality plan, determining what to do and what not to do, according to project objectives, budgets, and other constraints. You will understand code and suggest improvements and should be able to test a system and search for bugs with a highly critical eye and report incidents. This role will contribute to test automation at different levels; such as API and UI levels, and suggest new test cases, analyze the coverage, and decide if the test coverage is comprehensive. This role will help ensure test cases and scripts are aligned with development and business requirements. This role will maintain a broader understanding of the project vision, and leverage the specialist’s technical expertise to best support it.

Together, we are inventing innovative, interactive software experiences and changing the way people engage with technology (while having fun along the way, of course). Want to join our team?
