Lead QA Engineer

Location: Mountain View, CA

Type: Full Time

Min. Experience: Mid Level

Are you interested in creating technologies that improve the way engineers solve difficult problems?

Consider Pattern Insight.  We develop novel solutions for searching and analyzing vast quantities of semi-structured data.  Many of the biggest tech companies use our products to: find and fix source code bugs more quickly and completely; manage thousands of branches of software without going crazy; and solve high-end technical support problems faster and more effectively.

Needless to say, we're going places.  We have solid revenue; a small, talented team; just the right level of VC funding; and new opportunities opening up every day.  But we could really use a few more creative, resourceful engineers to help us turn those opportunities into reality.  Maybe that means you?
