Quality Assurance

What’s the challenge?

As Tassomai’s first dedicated QA hire, you’ll be responsible for ensuring a high quality experience across new and existing products. From the outset you’ll be given a high degree of freedom and responsibility, and will have to find your place within our product development teams. You’ll be baking ‘QA thinking’ into the entire process - design, delivery and post-release, so you’ll need to hit the ground running.

For someone with a rigorous mindset, strong attention to detail and a healthy degree of desire to break things, this is an opportunity to get in at an early stage at a company with a strong social mission and high growth potential.
