Hone Your Craft. Love Your Life.

Cloudburst is a Twin Cities, Minnesota technology development company whose product-focused services and success-based payment model are making entrepreneurial expertise and quality technology accessible to non-technical startup founders of all backgrounds.

We are growing along with our clients and are hiring a full time Quality Engineer to join the Quality Assurance practice as a key member of our Product Development team.

About the role

We are looking for a Quality Engineer to join our experienced software development team. Your primary focus will be to manually test products, advocate for the customer experience, document defects, and produce automated tests. You will be part of the development team, and working collaboratively to help ship better products.

To ensure success as a Quality Engineer, you should have some working knowledge of JavaScript, have the ability to learn new technology quickly, and the ability to work in a team environment. You'll help improve our products by making sure applications work as designed, are well-documented, and hard to break. You'll get the chance to use diagnostic, development, accessibility, performance, and debugging tools and enhance your existing skillset. Ultimately, a top-class Quality Engineer provides valuable support to the team and our customers.

We automate browsers with Playwright and document our applications with Cucumber. Our core technologies include JavaScript & TypeScript (Angular, Node.js), Google Cloud Platform (Firebase, PostgreSQL), and hybrid mobile app development with Ionic/Cordova/Capacitor. It’s okay if you don’t have experience with all of that—we just thought you’d want to know. We automate with GitHub actions.

Some Quality Engineer Responsibilities

  • Assisting the Product Development Team with all aspects of application testing

  • Manual device testing

  • Identifying, documenting, and verifying internal and client-reported defects

  • Writing and maintaining automated tests for browsers, devices, and APIs

  • Learning our codebases, improving your coding skills, and mentoring other Cloudburst team members

  • Responding to requests from the team and product managers

About You

  • You have a track record of living our core values: Entrepreneurship, Partnership, Impact, and Craftsmanship

  • You are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion

  • You enjoy learning as well as teaching

  • You get satisfaction from shared success and you embrace a long term perspective

  • You are able to communicate why our mission resonates with you and how your unique skills and experience will contribute to the success of our team and our clients
