Avato, the hottest HIP provider in the West, is hunting for a Senior Quality Assurance Engineer to join our team

Who Are We?

Avato's Hybrid Integration Platform is relied on by complex financial institutions and health organizations who need to thrive in complex, highly-regulated environments. We are a seasoned product with a new business model, a new brand and a technology platform with capabilities and benefits unavailable from others in the market.

The Avato culture is smart, fun and frankly, quite open. If there is an issue, we discuss it until it’s resolved. There is full freedom to call it as we see it. Technically, we are known as thought leaders in a space haunted by large, cranky, ineffective software providers who are all brand and no results.

Job Description

In this senior role, you’ll be the owner of product and process quality, and will significantly contribute to the effectiveness of our customers’ Avato integration projects, utilizing leading-edge technology stacks like Docker, Kubernetes, Azure, AWS and Google Cloud.

  • Designing automated tests and working with XSLT developers to further automate testing of the platform and our customers’ interfaces
  • Working in JIRA and the testing tools you recommend

Who are you?

You enjoy both learning from and sharing knowledge with the other team members. You are a team player, able to guide testing resources and interact with developers, subject-matter experts, business analysts, project managers, etc.

You also have:

  • 4+ years experience
  • Familiarity with QA techniques and methodologies
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills; mastery in English language.
  • Ability to effectively communicate testing strategies and interact effectively with the development teams

What we are proud to offer:

  • Compassion for each individual to find a balance between their professional and personal life’s;
  • Flexible work hours that allow you to maximize personal time;
  • Compensation package commensurate with your level of experience;
  • Employee Stock Option Plan;

  • Holidays start at 3 weeks plus “put out fires only” mode from start of Christmas week to end of New Years’ week;
  • $1000 budget to get yourself set up at home to work efficiently (not including laptop);
  • Approved professional development costs covered by the company
  • Health and Fitness bursary: up $50/ month to be used for that spin class or gym membership
