Mobile QA Engineer

HotelTonight makes it remarkably easy to book great hotels at amazing last-minute rates on your mobile device, for tonight, tomorrow and next week. Our mission is to make people feel more alive by delivering the unexpected and we’re looking for a Mobile QA Engineer to help do just that.

We take enormous pride in providing the best hotel-booking experience on mobile devices. We build amazing products by questioning the standard way of doing things.  Every day, the team faces the challenges of scaling to support our increased booking volume, building a unified global platform and adapting to the newest mobile technologies, all while keeping our apps fast and our UX clean and simple. To accomplish this, we utilize whatever technology is best to solve a particular problem.
