Our company is successful, self-funded, profitable, twenty people strong, and growing. We've developed a fantastic culture that embraces adventure in business, engineering and lifestyle. Please join us!

The Job
You'll develop and write simple but complete acceptance test cases in clearly understandable English that would be executable independently by others. 
You'll organize test cases into efficient test plans based on the specific changes in each release.
You'll execute test the test plans / cases that you've built to identify bugs and proactively discover subtle product flaws.
You'll help us to develop and improve our overall testing methodologies and procedures, participating in daily standup with the development team and twice monthly retrospectives.
You'll follow up with real customers on a regular basis to help clearly identify product flaws and proactively work to identify UI, UX, and workflow problems

About You
You enjoy exploring complex software systems, discovering flaws, and working with others describe and confirm fixes -- product quality is your passion!
You enjoy developing the systems and processes which prevent the release of bugs as much as you do directly testing software to discover bugs.
You love to learn new technologies and embrace change. You are open to whatever technology, processes or techniques will improve your ability to quickly validate releases.
You thrive in a remote working environment where you may never meet your co-workers in person; you go wherever you want. You want complete control over your development and working environment. You understand how essential clear, consistent communication is when working remotely -- ambiguity makes you uncomfortable.
You enjoy vigorously defending what you know to be right as much as you enjoy being wrong when the best answer wins. You're loath to have your co-workers discover bugs you've missed.

About Us
Pathable ( is the leading provider of mobile event apps and online community platforms for conferences, tradeshows, events, and associations.
From 10,000 doctors at a convention center to 200 community organizers meeting for a weekend, our software improves the entire experience of attending in-person conferences and events. Though we develop products delivered over the Internet, as a nearly 10 year-old profitable company, we're not quite a startup anymore.
We're fortunate to have room to innovate and experiment as we develop new products and services. Managed and majority owned by the original founders, we've got the freedom to chart our own course -- our only influence is what's best for our customers.
From the beginning, our culture has supported and embraced remote workers. We don't have an office and the Pathable family lives or is traveling in over 10 countries. Our members enjoy more time with their children, living in remote and unusual places, or exploring the world; all while growing professionally and building things about which they are proud.
We're building features in our recently finished new version, it was built from the ground up, using the latest tools available at the time, integrated everything we've learned from nearly 15 years of product development to the same market.
