Full Stack Engineer (QA & Release)

Chicago, IL


Moonrise is seeking a Full Stack Engineer (QA & Release). In this role, you will be responsible for developing and implementing a full suite of tests, along with testing frameworks, and debugging and helping define better processes to ensure software quality. You are a self-driven engineer with a strong understanding of full stack monolithic web applications and microservices. You are excited about the opportunity to automate complex tasks and implement continuous integration and deployment processes. You either already have experience as a QA/Release Engineer with a solid understanding of coding best practices and back-end testing or you are a Full Stack Engineer that is so driven by quality that the opportunity to drive forward a QA discipline in a new startup excites you.

You are passionate about helping underserved Americans that are living paycheck to paycheck. You are not afraid to constructively call out when things are not working right. You push back in an effective way that does not limit the team's creativity and also offer elegant ways to solve the problem at hand. You understand the trade-offs between moving fast and resilience and know when to lean more heavily towards one or the other. You enjoy working in a very ambiguous environment. You accept change and moving deadlines with ease and are okay jumping hurdles. Most of all, you love to help others!
