Why Work Here?

“Industry-Changing Technology in a Great Environment With A Team That Really Cares About Each Other and Our Customers.”

NOTE TO CANDIDATES: In response to the Coronavirus ( COVID-19 ) pandemic, we have suspended all in-person interviewing. However, we are optimistic that the situation will be resolved and that life will largely return to normal. Therefore, we are continuing to recruit for positions and will be conducting interviews via phone and video conferencing until such time as the government recommendations regarding social distancing are updated or lifted.

We are looking for a Quality Assurance (QA) & Documentation Specialist to join our agile organization that is dedicated to delivering a high-quality product and ensuring that it meets and exceeds client expectations. This is an exciting opportunity for you to make your mark in a fast- paced and growing telematics software company.


This entry-level role will report to the QA Director. As a QA Specialist, you will review functional requirements and user stories from internal stakeholders, design test plans, write test cases, oversee test strategies and perform testing for assigned applications. As a Documentation
Specialist, you will compose and review technical and end-user documentation. It's estimated that this role will spend about 50% of the time testing and 50% producing documentation, although this is subject to change.


Our ideal candidate would have a combination of business communication acumen and technical expertise to allow them to grow into a quality expert on a complex full-stack application and contribute to automation, performance and/or integration testing. This role will require the QA/Documentation Specialist to be physically present in our Indianapolis office on a daily basis.


What You'll Do:

  • Be a strong quality advocate, collaborating closely with software engineers and the product manager to release powerful products
  • Design and deliver risk-based test plans for new features and functionality, choosing the right method of testing for each situation or phase (scenario, exploratory, automated, etc.)
  • Produce Release Notes and concise Product/Feature Documentation for Internal and External customers
  • Help setup Documentation version control using Git Markdown and/or other tools.
  • Pair with software engineers to identify and prevent gaps with automation/regression coverage and implement test automation in the future

The Skills You Need to Be Successful

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer science, Engineering or equivalent preferred
  • 2-3 years of professional experience software testing and/or tier 2+ Support
  • Excellent communication and documentation skills a must
  • Experience writing test plans, test cases, as well as documenting defects and troubleshooting
  • Knowledge of web service and mobile testing
  • Experience working in an Agile environment is a plus
  • Experience with GIT and GitLab workflows a plus
  • Experience in full-stack end to end testing (Rest API, Database) is desirable
  • Database fundamentals, with MariaDB and MySQL experience favored
  • Demonstrated ability to operate on a small team in a fast-paced environment with the ability to change directions as priorities shift
  • Positive attitude with a strong desire to learn, grow professionally and have a positive impact on the company, its culture and products

Some of the perks of working at Earthwave Tech include:

  • Two weeks of paid vacation per year, in addition to commonly recognized National holidays and your birthday off
  • Competitive Medical Coverage Offerings
  • Competitive salary and Bonus Opportunities
  • Fun team and work environment
  • Sponsored team outings and frequent meals provided
  • The support of a highly dedicated team focused on building the future of Construction Telematics
