QA Manager

| Greater Boston Area


We are the fastest growing home security company in the country competing against the entrenched giants, like ADT, and the new-to-the-space giants, like Amazon and Google. To compete in this ever growing IoT home automation security space we must learn and iterate quickly, work collaboratively, and deliver creatively. In service to this challenge, our engineering team is proud to own and run the literal "full stack", from designing and building the circuit boards on our hardware all the way to coding the UI on our mobile applications.


Within engineering, we are looking for a hands-on QA Manager to build, develop, and coach our talented QA team (currently at 9 engineers and growing). The hardware\firmware\software stack is complex, but exciting to tackle from a quality perspective. Help us solve these challenges! In this role, you will:

  • Not boss, but rather lead the QA team forward
  • Be a hands-on coach by leading by example
  • Pragmatically work alongside each individual and scrum team - all the while, carefully balancing risk and delivery
  • Support and drive the improvement of the end-to-end automation framework stack
  • Help evaluate and select tools and systems, or develop in-house solutions to provide comprehensive test coverage
  • Work alongside the appropriate teams to integrate and deliver a CI/CD solution
  • Again, because its worth repeating - coach, mentor and build our critical QA team

About You:

  • Years of experience leading strong QA teams
  • Experience creating a comprehensive test strategy encompassing varying technical stacks
  • Managerial experience over automation frameworks
  • Strong grasp of a DevOps/IoT/microservices environment fueled by CI/CD pipelines
  • Understands that QA is an engineering responsibility not an individual team's responsibility
  • Excited to not have to be the gatekeeper of change, but rather the catalyst for improving our products & services
  • Agile mindset
  • Enjoys working in a fast-paced and open, collaborative environment
