Quality Assurance Tester

Job Purpose

For the last 35 years, our 50-person team has been building Cyc, the world’s only AI that deeply understands what it’s reasoning about (as opposed to what everyone else today calls “AI”: statistical machine learning and limited-logic knowledge-graph searching). Human-level artificial general intelligence only needs to be created once, and we’re looking for people to join our team to help us in that effort. As an QA Tester, you will find and fill gaps in Cycorp applications. You must be skilled at finding effective automated and manual approaches to thoroughly test products. You must also be good at identifying potential bugs and other defects, and then you must be able to clearly communicate how others can remedy the situation.

What it’s like to work as a QA Tester

  • You will identify, reproduce, and report bugs or other suboptimal performance in Cycorp applications.
  • You will design automated and manual testing procedures and ensure they are properly run.
  • Testers must monitor weekly regression test loops.
  • QA personnel must maintain documentation regarding software and application defects.

Required Qualifications

  • Successsful candidates must have excellent analytical and problem solving skills.
  • Given the communication demands of the position, testers must have excellent English writing and verbal skills.

Preferred Qualifications

  • While the capacity to use an issue tracker is a requirement, it is a plus to already be familiar with JIRA, which Cycorp currently uses.
  • Experience in AI is also a plus.
