Quality Assurance Engineer – Can you spot the errors in our posting?
They say there’s no such thing as perfect, but you know that’s because they’re doing it wrong. If spotting errors and finding flaws were a game, you would win with one eye closed. BOOM.
Your uncontrollable need to point out others’ “FAIL” moments might explain why you were picked last in gym class, but no matter – now it’s your turn to be MVP. We need your sharp eye to spot mistakes so we can score a perfect product.
To make things fun for you, we’ve dropped a couple of errors in this job description. So as they say, “Play ball!” (Bonus points if you spot errors we didn’t even notice we made, you Quality Assurance master, you.)
