We exist to unlock creativity.

The Ceros platform empowers designers and marketers to create and publish beautiful, interactive content experiences without the need for developers.

Our users work collaboratively in real-time on a browser-based digital canvas to create pixel-perfect experiences with rich animations and interactivity. The experiences they publish work consistently across all browsers and devices, and all customer engagement is tracked with extensive analytics. All without writing code.

About the Product

Designing and building the Ceros platform is no easy task. We require the best-of-the-best web developers, designers, and QA testers, ready to bring the functionality of desktop software to the web, often pushing web browsers to the limits of what’s currently possible.

As a browser-based application, our codebase is largely JavaScript and the Ceros product is comprised of multiple single-page applications with a client-heavy focus. We use libraries like React, Require, and Backbone. The Ceros Studio is architected around the HTML5 Canvas element.

We’re not language zealots. We believe in using the right tool for the job, and our current server-side infrastructure runs PHP, Node.js, Redis, MySQL, Chef, etc. on Amazon’s AWS cloud.

About the Team

As part of the Ceros product team, you’ll be working with a small, cross-functional group of the most talented people you’ve ever worked with. We hire only passionate and creative people with a proven and unquestionable ability to execute, and every member of the team is equally responsible for moving the product forward. We find a way.

We have a very dynamic company culture that collaborates daily. We care deeply about the user experience, and we debate passionately about our ideas. When you work at Ceros, you check your ego at the door, and you aren’t afraid to be honest, especially to yourself. We take our jobs seriously but ourselves not so much -- whether it’s cracking jokes in the chat room or poking fun at the CEO’s atrocious spelling.

This position is 100% remote, but we are primarily in US Eastern time zone and prefer candidates who will maintain an overlapping work schedule with the team.

About the Opportunity

The Senior QA Engineer will be spearheading our efforts of automating our established testing processes to ensure quality releases on time. We’re looking for a self-starter who is comfortable not only building up the automated test infrastructure in the cloud from scratch, but equally comfortable executing tests as well as training our developers and testers on the systems that you put in place. You understand the different types of automated tests and can help us get most bang for our buck. When it comes to quality, you are a fanatic. You know what you are doing and enjoy sharing your knowledge. You take pride in serving the product team in the quest for maximum efficiency.

If this sounds like you, your typical day might involve:

  • researching the best automated test platforms available

  • analyzing our manual test cases and automating them

  • writing maintainable test code

  • diving into the product codebase to understand how to test it

  • carrying out and being on the receiving end of intense code review sessions from your peers who hold your work (and their own) at the highest of standards,

  • deploying and maintaining automated test infrastructure

Next Steps

If you want to be part of the Ceros team, please send your resume and a cover letter to us. We’re a company of passionate, honest, and sometimes silly people, so don’t be afraid to express yourself.
