  • Implement front-end automated testing frameworks
  • Complete quality assurance testing activities to ensure each new release is ready for production

  • Assisting the Product Team with project estimates and ensuring objectives are realistic and achievable
  • Making quality assurance a top priority by thorough testing and striving for flawless and bug-free projects
  • Owning the development and delivery of front-end deliverables, and prove to be an invaluable member of the Crowdmark team

Ideally, you have

  • Bachelor’s Degree (any discipline)

  • A strong sense of ownership, responsibility and self-motivation
  • Strong knowledge in UX/UI
  • Ability to work in a fast paced environment
  • Strong organizational skills
  • Strong teamwork skills
  • Experience working in a SaaS environment

What's in it for you?

  • Competitive compensation package (but you should also be someone who wants a piece of the upside at a fast-growing company)
  • Collaborate with a smart and senior development team
  • Make an impact with your first project

This is a full-time position based in Toronto or remote anywhere in Canada.
