Title: Software Engineer in Test, QA (Platform)

Location: Victoria, BC / Remote-first

The Role

About Us

Echosec Systems is a fast growing security software company committed to making the world’s data more discoverable. We gather publicly available data from a broad range of online sources like social media and the deep and dark web. We also build AI that helps make that data simple to search, filter, and monitor.  Our clients use our products for security and intelligence purposes to keep people, places, and assets safe. We’re trusted by some of the most significant public and private sector organizations globally to support their missions.  

The product and development team at Echosec is actively seeking entrepreneurially minded “doers”. Do you have ideas, vision, and a can-do attitude? Currently in a growth phase, our software development and engineering team needs to be agile, engaged, and open to both gaining and sharing experience.

The team is eclectic, driven, and remote-friendly. We range between a diverse variety of backgrounds, skills, and education levels. Two common threads: we thrive in a loosely structured environment (read: no meetings that could have been a Slack message). We’re a group of high performers and we deliver as a team.
