Senior QA Engineer

ThinkIQ - Aliso Viejo, CA

Become part of the team that is changing the world of manufacturing

We are looking for a driven, high-energy, Senior QA Engineer for our digital manufacturing SaaS solution. ThinkIQ is the leader in Transformational Intelligence for Manufacturers, contextualizing data — both in-plant and across the supply chain — to improve yield, safety, quality, and compliance. Simply put, actionable end-to-end data insights lead to safer products and improved key metrics, and we are looking for team members who will help us drive success. If this sounds like you, we want to talk!

With ThinkIQ’s Transformational Intelligence platform, manufacturers finally have a complete overview of all operations. Changes in any variable are intelligently linked to both actual and predictive outcomes. This data may help one manufacturer avoid recalls from a temperature spike or assembly line slow down. It may help another manufacturer spot a weakness in their product that could become a major safety concern. And it may help another find that a small change in raw ingredients or suppliers can significantly increase their bottom line. At ThinkIQ, we do not just gather data. We do not just analyze data. We make sense of the data, and suggest actions that enhance safety, reliability, and efficiency.

As Senior QA Engineer you will interact with product management, software engineers, quality assurance and professional services to ensure the product meets functional and performance requirements as specified by product owners and professional services.

Required experience includes:

  • 5+ years working in a similar role with an enterprise SaaS product
  • Automation tools such as Selenium
  • Track record of building test automation that is scalable, reusable, extendable, and maintainable
  • Database experience: PostgreSQL preferred
  • Version control systems: Git preferred

Desired experience:

  • In addition to a QA background, Development, IT, and Support backgrounds are all a plus
  • Familiarity with multiple automation frameworks and ability to learn new ones quickly
  • Familiarity with any of the Technologies we use


  • Ensure the ThinkIQ platform meets functional and performance requirements as stated by product owners, professional services, and customers
  • Help make our product a delight to use and rock-solid
  • Work closely with the developers to understand new and changed functionality, risks, and the quality of the underlying code
  • Communicate user stories and defects with developers, product owners, and professional services using Jira and direct communication
  • Document test cases and results using TestRail
  • Troubleshoot and analyze problems on staging and production systems

Technologies we use:

  • Overall Stack: LAPP and LAMP (Linux, Apache, Postgres, PHP, and MySQL)
  • UI Technologies: HTML, JavaScript, CSS, jQuery, Vue Js
  • Middle Tier: PHP using Joomla CMS and Python
  • Database: Primarily PostgreSQL, secondarily MySQL
  • Data collection and ingestion: .NET using OPC UA
  • Operating Systems: Linux and Windows
  • DevOps Scripting: Bash and Python
  • Cloud Hosting: AWS and Azure
  • IT Automation: Ansible
  • UI Automation: Selenium
  • Unit Testing Automation: PHPUnit, Vue Js, plpgUnit

Attitude and Cultural Fit

  • Customer focused: Our software has no value until it is creating value for our customers.
  • Lean: Must function well without a large supporting bureaucracy: We are a startup company; we all wear many hats and do many jobs. We are a flat organization with limited resources where the decider and the doer often can be the same person.
  • Learn: Open to learning new technologies with enthusiasm.
  • Inclusive team builder and team player: The ThinkIQ team is ONE team. All our efforts are focused on making this a winning team and strengthening the team. We are all responsible for building and supporting the team. There is no room for sub-teams, hidden agendas, or internal fiefdoms.
  • Agile: Our decision processes are quick, we experiment to find solutions, we learn from our experiments and implement robust solutions. We are looking for a person with creativity combined with discipline and accuracy.
  • Transparent and honest: We are a sharing organization where it is easy to gain insight into what other parts of the organization is doing. Our systems provide controlled access to information so that any person with a need-to-know information has access to that information. We expect honesty so that we can make good decisions.
  • Hungry: The right person wants to make a difference in the world and believes that it is possible to create better and simpler solutions than exists today. While all team members will be financially rewarded when we are successful, the right person is driven more by the value created to the customer than the financial reward to the individual.
  • Willing to go the extra mile: We are all working hard because we believe in what we are doing. We are looking to expand the team with people that want to do the same. We are not discouraged when faced with an extra challenge or an unexpected obstacle.

Why join ThinkIQ

  • Competitive salary plus equity
  • Health, dental, vision and life insurance
  • Unlimited vacation policy (and we do really take vacations)
  • Ability to work remotely
  • Great positive working environment
