Overview of NuoDB:
Designed to address the needs of today's businesses as they prepare for the future, NuoDB's elastic SQL database combines the scale-out simplicity, elasticity, and continuous availability that cloud applications require, with the transactional consistency and durability that databases of record demand. Conceived by database innovator Jim Starkey, NuoDB is backed by three former CEOs of the four original relational database companies.
NuoDB is seeking a results-oriented QA engineer who is self-motivated and can develop automated tests and test harnesses to provide coverage for the NuoDB core database engine. This engineer will work with developers and other QA Engineers locally as well as in Ireland and the US to support the testing of new features as well as expanding coverage of existing features.
The ideal candidate will thrive in and help drive a fast-paced environment. The candidate should have QA testing and automation experience, ideally with high-availability distributed systems. Some knowledge of database systems and SQL is required and database internals experience is a strong advantage. The winning candidate will also have experience with agile software development processes, and possess strong communications skills. He/she will report to the Director of Engineering in Cambridge, MA, USA.
