What we're Building

Engagio’s Account Based Marketing and Sales platform enables teams to orchestrate highly-scalable human connections. Our all in one ABM solution helps you engage your best prospects and customers, get deeper insights at the company level, and communicate with personalized, relevant content. Join the experts in the Account Based Everything revolution! Engagio has over $32 million in funding from Norwest, FirstMark, Storm Ventures, and First Round Capital. Engagio is hiring awesome, entrepreneurial employees to join the team at Engagio headquarters in downtown San Mateo, CA.

As the QA, Agile Project and Release Management Lead, you’ll be a key contributor to our SaaS platform for account-based sales and marketing.

You will be responsible for leading our QA best practices, agile project management and release management to the next level. You will introduce processes and technologies that help engineers perform their quality assurance tasks more consistently and reliably. You will write test cases, manage exploratory testing and work with product management, internal stakeholders and customers to ensure that our quality standards are met before our solution makes it into the hand of our customers.

We’re looking for team members who will thrive in a start-up environment: you’ll take responsibility for significant parts of the product while collaborating actively as part of a small, talented team. You’ll work out of our downtown San Mateo office (right near the Caltrain).
