Manual QA Tester - SpotOn - Chicago, IL

Looking for an environment which will help foster your skills as well as encourage you to make your own personal mark on a company's culture? Interested in ensuring only quality software reaches thousands of customers every release? SpotOn is the place for you!


With a tech team based out of an open and sunny office in Chicago's West Loop, SpotOn is a fast-growing marketing and loyalty platform that helps customers earn rewards at their favorite local businesses using our web, mobile phone, and tablet products. Once the customers interact with the businesses, businesses use SpotOn to reach out and connect with their customers, and manage their online reputation.


As a Manual QA Tester at SpotOn, you'll be tasked with helping our software engineers release only the highest quality of software. Through manual touch-testing (especially of our legacy, BackboneJS-based stack, and of new features we haven't fully built to be production-ready), you will play a key role in providing our end users the best experience possible.


You'll also learn the skills to buffer incoming support requests and issue reports from our customers and our customer support team, allowing the team as a whole to more effectively focus on product needs.
