Full Job Description
Just three years in, 15% of young people in the US (18-25) have tried Co–Star. That growth has been entirely through word of mouth – we have never spent on ads. We have millions of active users, have raised $6m, and just launched our second paid feature.
For thousands of years, astrology has functioned as social glue, giving people the tools to reflect and connect in real, meaningful ways. Co–Star is bringing astrology into the 21st century with an app people call their “best friend," compare to "a board meeting with your best friend, your boss, your mother, and the universe," and that therapists recommend to their clients.
We’re looking for our first QA hire to catch bugs before our users do, by pulling every lever every time there is a new release and filing clear, well-written bug reports. Your primary goal will be to ensure, protect, and improve the quality of the Co–Star Android and iOS apps.
Strong potential to grow into Product or Engineering roles.
What you’ll do:
Write and execute detailed test plans for the Co–Star Android and iOS apps.
Rigorously investigate, document, and track issues you discover and users report.
Anticipate how changes may impact user workflows & how they may cause pain points.
Work closely with Product, Engineering, and CX teams to prioritize known issues according to impact.
Help develop quantitative standards for assessing and maintaining app quality.
Develop test strategies at the kickoff of project and feature work.
Assess the quality, usability and functionality of each release.
You may be a good fit for this role if you have:
2-4 years of QA experience with consumer-facing mobile apps, or equivalent.
The ability to reproduce complex bugs with minimal steps.
A borderline extreme attention to detail, sense of rigor, and meticulousness.
Clear, organized, and concise communication & writing style.
Product design and UX sensibilities that can drive testing that accounts for multiple use cases.
Interest in maintaining automated tests (low to "no-code" alternatives are ok).
