Senior QA Engineer Nominum
Nominum has been building the backbone of the Internet for more than a decade. Nominum software is used by dozens of Internet service providers around the world, reaching more than 500 million subscribers each day, and that number is growing all the time.
We?re in the process of expanding as we become a complete Internet experience company, and we?re hiring. We have very ambitious (maybe a little crazy) goals for the next few years, so there will be plenty of opportunities to tackle stimulating technical problems using the most cutting edge technologies available. If you?re interested in big data analytics or complex rules engines, we should talk. But as we grow, we?re being very careful not to lose our culture. If you want to work in a collegial environment where you can be a part of a small, dynamic engineering team and where you can really take ownership of a project, you?ll probably fit in just fine. At Nominum, attitudes are forbidden, and ideas are championed.
We have all the good parts of an established company, without the endless meetings and bureaucratic hoops to jump through just to get simple things done. And all the good parts of a small start-up, except we have better health benefits, more flexible schedules, and a saner work-life balance. At Nominum, things move fast. We have to be agile and responsive without losing sight of the bigger picture. We?ve got a plan to make the Internet more awesome.
Nominum empowers Communication Service Providers (CSPs) to quickly and cost effectively deliver personalized services that provide a differentiated, safer customer experience, generate revenues and build brand loyalty. Nominum's N2 Platform and core engines provide an open, scalable service delivery platform that leverages customer behavior data from the DNS and other network sources and monetizes the data through intelligent policy management and notification-based service offerings. The N2 Platform processes over 1.5 trillion DNS queries daily and is easily layered upon existing network infrastructure with no additional hardware.
