Layer 7 Technologies is seeking add QA Analysts to join an energetic and growing QA department.
You have ideally worked in a QA department for at least 4 years, performing a mix of manual and automation-based product testing. You should be comfortable performing a variety of tasks – from product testing to functional specification review, documentation, 3rd party software installation/configuration, and server setup/configuration – and should be comfortable performing them independently.
