Houston Business Journal Best Places to Work Award

SnapStream offers a challenging technical environment, but our attitude is decidedly relaxed. We work flexible hours, drink a lot of Red Bull and soda, and wear pretty much anything that's clean. We offer all the tools and perks to making coding fast and fun: dual LCD's, free snacks, Fast Fiber connection, fun intra-office events, etc.. And we love what we do for a living. Recording and watching television is our passion, whether it's in our homes or supporting our enterprise customers like The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report and the U.S. Senate.

All in all, we're a group of technophiles who love PCs, DVRs, video, anything hackable and new gadgets (Apple fan boys in the house). Ultimately, we're seeking a like-minded individual to join our team! Got what it takes?

Quality Assurance Engineer

Job Description

You seriously want to work for SnapStream!

We're seeking an uber geek to help ensure the high quality of our SnapStream TV product. In addition to the challenges of the job, SnapStream provides a great environment where working is fun. We supply you with smart coworkers, a great work environment, flexible hours, relaxed dress code, and all the lunches that you can eat courtesy of Chef Boyardee.

That may all sound well and good, but there is something even more important. At SnapStream, you're not a drone. What you do makes an incredible impact on the software and hardware that tens of thousands of people use every day.

The position we have open is for someone that will work in our testing / quality assurance department. An average day will see testing bugs and iterating with developers, meeting to discuss product design and maintaining our checklist and testlab tools. Testing the software will require a mix of hands on "brute force" testing as well as creating and running automated tools.

If you're the right person for the job, we're interested in you whether you're entry level or highly experienced.

This job isn't about running Quick Test Pro scripts. We require a Windows PC expert with extreme attention to detail and demonstrable use of logical thinking in everyday problem solving.

Responsibilities

  • Become an expert on SnapStreamís technologies and products
  • Validate features, bug fixes and improvements using hands on and automated testing methods
  • Regression test software components before major releases to eliminate backsliding
  • Design test plans that exercise all aspects of the software and maintain them in our checklist database
  • Iterate quickly with developers while checking for quality, consistency and usability
  • Maintain test lab infrastructure and continually improve hardware coverage testing
  • Advocate usability and proper development practices to improve user experience and development speed

Required Skills

  • Demonstrable excitement about computer hardware and software
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Extreme attention to detail and ability to focus on quality in a rapidly moving environment
  • Expert knowledge of Windows PC hardware and software
  • Hands-on experience implementing, troubleshooting, and supporting the Windows operating system

Preferred Skills

  • Experience in Quality Assurance of a commercial software product, Technical Support or Network Administration
  • C++, C#, and Microsoft .net coding or testing experience
  • Experience scripting or programming to create utilities that automate tedious tasks
  • Experience with PC based DVRs (such as SnapStream's Beyond TV) and PC TV tuner cards
  • Knowledge of standard testing practices such as black box, white box and automated testing

Salary Range

  • $45-$70k

Location

Washington Ave Area, Houston, TX
