Come work with a team of ultra-talented and wickedly-authentic designers, developers, strategists, UX architects, and tech visionaries. We build products that we’re incredibly proud of—for clients that we deeply respect—all within a team of great friends and colleagues. Punchkick Interactive has an unmistakable culture of excellence and we seek out folks who feel alive and thrive in this type of environment.

Punchkick has doubled in size each of the last three years, landed on the Inc. 5000, and was voted the best place to work in Chicago by the Chicago Business Journal. To date, Punchkick has worked with 18 of the Fortune 500. And we’ve only just begun to hit our stride.

Quality assurance is an integral part of our product development process. QA rigorously tests the software we build at the end of each development sprint. This process further ensures that each and every product we build is fully functional and bug-free. We’re looking for a Senior QA Tester who pays fanatic attention to detail and isn’t satisfied until every bug is squashed.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • A bachelor’s degree in computer science or a closely related major.
  • 5 + years of manual functional/regression testing design and execution experience, including experience with accounting systems and applications.
  • Experience using Android Studio and Xcode (to build code)
  • Experience with Version Control using Git
  • Experience in designing and executing manual test plans and test scripts for complete modules and/or workflows.
  • Experience with designing and developing test cases based upon system specifications documentation.
  • Proven track record of successful management of resources and timelines.
  • Familiarity with JSP and JavaScript with the ability to debug and investigate pages for issues.
  • Ability to work closely with software developers to develop test specifications and build test cases to rigorously test product functionality.
  • Ability to work closely with client teams (be it on a call, and in-person)
  • Ability to manage your time and timelines.
  • Experience working on greater than 2 projects at any given time (are able to context switch)
  • Strong understanding and hands-on experience with quality assurance processes and methodologies
  • Understanding of both Agile and Waterfall software methodologies
  • Testing experience on web-based applications and native applications (iOS and Android)

An Insider's view of Punchkick Interactive

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As a new mom, juggling being a parent and my career, seemed intimidating. But I was wrong. Punchkick is supportive of my new schedule and encourages me to focus on my family. Their support not only motivates me to work harder, but gives me confidence that I’ve chosen the right place to call my work home.

Sarah Hertzberg

Director of Client Success, TUX

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The best ideas at Punchkick come from within our team, and one of the best things I can do to foster creativity is to actively help Punchkickers surface their ideas and run them through our internal advice channel. Getting feedback and support for big ideas or sweeping change can seem intimidating to some, but it definitely doesn’t have to be.

Zak Dabbas

Co-Founder

What are some things you learned at the company?

Punchkick offers the opportunity to work with so many different technologies. No one project or client is the same. As a result, you get to work with numerous frameworks, languages, and tools throughout the year. I really enjoy the fact that I get to learn something new every day I come into work.

Gary Sperka

Full Stack Developer
