Senior QA Engineer with API test experience

The Culture

This small but accomplished team is backed by the best and brightest in Denver and Boulder.  They’ve been at it as a team for more than three years and their future is bright. These folks eat Big Data (and perhaps some Froot Loops) for breakfast.  They are at the forefront of using Big Data to make people’s lives easier- and as such their market traction is strong.

The office is in central Denver, far too close to drinking establishments and restaurants- but if you simply can’t walk across the street to get a beer or lunch, you can go to the stocked fridge.  Joking aside- they take care of their people – no question about that.
