Full Job Description
WHO WE ARE
VideoLink is the leader in our space, providing tools related to low-latency video transmission and remote camera control. We pride ourselves on our ability to provide elegant, technical solutions to the communications challenges of national broadcasters and Fortune 1000 companies. Our employees are the people who enable us to deliver on those values every business day. That’s why we’re always on the lookout for talented, ambitious people who can make a substantial contribution to our team of smart, down-to-earth, hardworking professionals.
We offer a small team, startup type environment within a large, stable organization. At VideoLink you will participate in all phases of the SDLC and see your contributions matter and be visible in the market. You’ll have daily opportunities to develop your individual skills and to become an expert on technology related to the broadcast and virtual video production industries.
We offer a competitive package and a balanced culture. We love what we do and hope you do too - come join us!
WHAT YOU’LL DO
We are looking for a QA Test Engineer to develop and test our real-time video transport and remote-control studio applications.
In this role you will get the opportunity to “wear many hats” as we collaboratively iterate our products. Our software team participates across the SDLC, working on requirements specification, prototyping, implementation, testing, and release management. This role will have a primary focus on (but will not be limited to) testing and QA of our Java based web application and our video encoding and transmission products.
Candidates who enjoy working on a small test-driven development team would be a great fit for us. Also, a high value is placed on a candidate’s ability to not only expose issues but to also recommend and implement innovative solutions. Work will be completed on an almost entirely Linux-based environment. Our products focus on broadcast video production and transmission, video compression and real-time streaming. Experience with video and video production is a plus but is not required.
Due to the hardware centric nature of our products, candidates should expect to work hands-on with our technology, especially while coming up to speed. Depending on skill set and experience, there is potential for this to be a remote position with regularly scheduled visits to our headquarters in Newton, MA.
Ensure software performance and reliability through thoughtful R&D and testing processes
Develop/execute test cases and create documentation to allow others to execute manual tests
Create and implement improvements to our video capture, streaming and production solutions
