QA Lead

DealerSocket is the software punch behind the Nation’s largest automobile dealers. 31% of all cars are sold using DealerSocket software. We have the best and brightest employees with Development Centers of Excellence in Southern California, Utah, Wisconsin and Texas. Our real strength is in the exceptional quality of work we do, and how we put our heads together to offer clients something powerful, cutting-edge, and distinct on every level. Our company culture centers on that effort, but it’s also about ensuring that we enjoy making it happen. We get involved in our local community through charity and volunteer projects, and at the same time we create a community of our very own with events like parties, retreats, team sports and impromptu gatherings in the game room. Get through the screen door and on to our porch!

This role should be a beacon reflecting our cultural values: Be your best, achieve more together, Think beyond your role, Make the plane, Serve to win and Make it happen. Level-up during your interview by showing us what these mean to you and remember to ask us what “Make the plane” means.

Being a tech company we have a laid back environment. Casual dress code: sandals and shorts approved, bagel Fridays, and a game room whenever you need a break! Those are just a few of the perks!
