Your Team: QA Team

 

We’re creating the world’s best higher education learning environment to power the best brands in education. The QA team is responsible for testing our Learning Objects platform, learning everything there is to know about our products, a little bit of third level support, and regularly asking “what if? and “why?” Our testers care just a little too much about getting it right for our users. Our team is growing and working together to redefine how we do testing here at Learning Objects. One of the things that’s great about this team is that we don’t have it all figured out (yet), but we are building a team of great testing minds who are working together with developers to change the way people learn.
