Lead QA Engineer

Job description

Parsec’s goal is to help businesses embrace flexible work environments and keep their employees productive through ultra low latency, high performance, remote desktop technology. But Parsec isn’t your typical remote desktop tool. It was built for gaming, which makes it great for everything. Parsec for Teams leverages our technology to help some of the biggest names in gaming, entertainment, engineering, architecture, and more transition to a flexible work environment where people can decide when and where they work. Parsec has allowed customers like Electronic Arts, Blizzard, Ubisoft, and Square Enix to stay on schedule as they make some of the world’s favorite content.

With a recent Series B led by Andreesen Horrowitz, Parsec is growing so that we can power flexible work across industries. The average Parsec for Teams user is already saving more than an hour each day using our software. That time gets put back into work, family, health, and more. We think this kind of freedom makes people happier, healthier, and more productive.

Engineering culture:

We value diversity and talent over experience. We believe a small team that collaborates well can accomplish more than a large team bogged down with process. At Parsec it’s everyone’s job to understand the customers’ problems and come up with creative solutions. As an engineer you don’t just write code, you design and build a product.


We believe in simple and robust solutions. Our app is written in C and compiles into a 3.5mb executable. Our backend is written in Go and runs serverless on AWS. We avoid bloat and dependencies, preferring to roll our own implementations tailored for our unique needs and with a focus on performance. 

The Opportunity:

We are looking for an experienced QA engineer to build and lead a best-in-class QA team. As the first member on the QA team this will be a hands-on role that will over time transition to more management. The ideal candidate is methodical with a deep understanding of both manual and automated testing, QA processes, test case management and security.

What you’ll do:

  • Define and implement QA processes

  • Select and implement a test case management system

  • Write and execute test plans

  • Write and maintain automated tests

  • Hire and manage a team of QA testers

Job requirements

We’re looking for a diverse set of experiences, and no one will be ruled out for this role. That being said, we’re hoping you’ll have some combination of these:

  • 5+ years of QA experience

  • Experience leading a team

  • A “get it done” attitude and willingness to roll up your sleeves

  • Prior experience at a SAAS company highly appreciated

  • Prior experience with a security sensitive product a bonus

  • US citizenship or green card
