Linguamatics is looking for software test engineers to work on Linguamatics' world-class natural language processing software for life science and healthcare applications.

We are a team of around 15 software testers that has grown rapidly over the last few years as the business has expanded. We primarily test software but we also provide a service to the company generally by doing things like helping our Ops team with a new cloud deployment, supporting our Application Specialists on consulting projects, and proofreading marketing copy.

We strive to provide relevant information to stakeholders and we're flexible about how we do it. We are prepared to use exploratory testing, checklists, test scripts, tools, automation, and whatever else we think will give the result the business needs. We use and we eagerly solicit peer review, we’re open to new ideas, and we perform regular retrospectives to help us improve ourselves and our work.

Linguamatics is active in the local testing community, regularly hosting meetups and Lean Coffee. Testers on our team often attend those events, testing workshops and conferences. We also have regular internal training in testing and other skills.

Our company respects what we do, and we’re a core part of our company’s work and culture. Testers are often to be seen at brown bag lunches, entering the weekly caption contest, or writing for the company newsletter, Indefinite Articles.
