Who we are looking for
Promenade (formerly known as BloomNation) is rapidly growing and looking for a Software Test Engineer. We’re looking for an experienced software test engineer who can help our small but growing team of enthusiastic and ambitious engineers better identify, understand and fix the risks in our products. Our Software Test Engineers have a good understanding of exploratory testing and how it is applied to all kinds of different interfaces. You should be comfortable in testing new features, the designs behind those features, the code and the software itself using a risk-based mind set for structuring your testing.
You understand the impossibility of complete testing better than most and are constantly striving to gather relevant information about risks. Maybe you’ve heard of the modern testing principles and you’d rather work in an environment focused on flexibility and agility rather than a traditional test management environment.
You’ll be expected to create test artifacts as appropriate, build a test strategy, use the appropriate test techniques, explore all relevant interfaces of the application, design and execute tests, do some regression testing and identify, investigate and report bugs.
Work with Product and Engineering teams to understand the product, identify and test for known and unknown risks and surface that information
Using some basic telemetry to better understand why problems are happening in order to make actionable decisions
Investigate and document bugs in an actionable way to get them fixed
Identify and communicate better practices for testing and improving quality

Today, Promenade creates software for four industries - Floral (BloomNation), Food (Dig-in), Beverage (Swigg), and Breweries (Bevv). The company is based in Santa Monica, CA.
