TopYa! Careers

Associate Software QA Analyst 

The TopYa! app is bringing back the kid-driven, sandlot environment that has faded for this generation. We’re making sports fun again through the very mobile devices that otherwise compete for their time, attention and level of activity. Kids get active and build their skills by participating in video based challenges from coaches, celebrities and other experts, as well as from other kids from around the world. Sports organizations and schools can engage with kids at-home through TopYa! to keep practice going off the field. We’re passionate about getting kids moving around here!

We’re looking for a QA Tester to be a key member of our product management and engineering teams. You’ll be working within a globally distributed team of product managers and developers across multiple software product lines. If you love working with mobile and web apps, have a solid foundation of software QA skills -- and have experience with (or an interest in) QA automation -- this may be the fit for you.

You'll be working as part of a distributed team, testing web and native mobile apps, as well as the backend API’s they interact with. This is a hands-on role, writing test plans and conducting manual testing for each release. But, key to your success is helping us carve the path to automated tests and continuous improvement.

This role reports directly to the Chief Product Officer and is part of the product management team.  

Responsibilities
  • Work with the individual product management/development teams in developing a QA testing strategy for each release, as well as the types of tests (UI, web service API, functional/performance/load, and so on).

  • Develop automated test frameworks and test cases for the different types of tests employed.
  • Execute and report on the full testing suite of both manual and automated tests.
  • Communicate effectively with technical and non-technical personnel.
Qualifications and Experience 
  • 2+ years of manual testing

  • iOS and/or Android UI testing

  • Working knowledge of Windows and macOS, all major web browsers, and iOS and Android mobile devices
  • Experience with kanban software development and JIRA is a plus

Your Attributes
