Full Time

Founded by a team of freelance engineers, Blue Orange Digital wanted to bring an engineering approach to the agency model. Our projects use the latest and greatest technologies and afford/require a lot of direct code contribution from each developer. We care about the products we build and only work with clients that understand that good applications come from happy engineers. We are an entirely remote company with team members all across the US.

We are a small digital agency with a very large project.

Our application consists of a React SPA consuming a Scala API populated by data from a custom ETL pipeline.

The QA manager role plays an important part in our company’s product development process. Our ideal candidate will be responsible for conducting tests before product launches to ensure software runs smoothly and meets client needs while being cost-effective.
