Software Engineer Test & Infrastructure

 

Vail Systems Company Profile

 

The human voice is capable of conveying nuances and meaning that just can't be expressed through clicks and text messages. And for that reason, voice interactions have always had a special power to shape our perceptions and experiences. At Vail, we believe in the unique power of voice interactions to create more expressive, more intimate, and more efficient interpersonal interactions. Our experts work with Fortune 500 companies to help them serve their customers more efficiently and effectively through the use of various voice technologies. From basic network services, to state-of-the-art IP telephony, to cutting edge real-time analytics, Vail technology makes millions of voice interactions better every day.

 

Software Engineer Test & Infrastructure

 

Our voice technology is cool, but it's mostly invisible. That's why we take great care in surrounding our voice applications with elegant and intuitive web-based applications to make them tangible and usable. Vail's web development team develops user applications that enable our clients to achieve optimal benefits from our software. Creating intuitively usable web applications is a multi-disciplinary process that requires instinct, creativity, empathy and an eye for detail. We assemble collaborative teams made up of industry experts and neophytes applying principles of application design, graphic art, and even cognitive psychology to ensure that we approach problems from every angle. We'd like to add a Software Test Engineer to one of our teams and we'd like to know if you think you fit the bill. You will if you:

  • Really want to learn new things
