Through a portfolio of vertical web properties reaching more than 100 million monthly visitors, a global network of digital partners, and a breakthrough content studio, Demand Media publishes what the world wants to know and share. Join the company that is shaping the future of media â€" how it's created, consumed and shared.
A key pillar of Demand Media, Pluck is an award-winning (e.g. Forrester 5 star rated) integrated community platform. Pluck (http://www.pluck.com) is the world's first Social Application Server and offers the only white-label social media platform broad enough to power communities for â€œtop 20â€ brands, retailers, and publishers. Through native reviews, ratings, comments, photos, videos, gamification, and moderation capabilities, plus SDKs in 6 languages, we make possible unique and mission-critical implementations for businesses like Target, Nike, the NFL, AARP, Mattel, Nestle, Kraft, Whole Foodsâ€¦ and the list goes on and on.
We work in a lighthearted, collaborative environment that is diverse, open-minded, â€œintrapreneurialâ€, and agile.

Plus, you'll get to work in the lovely SoCo neighborhood of Austin, at our offices in the former Austin Opera House, Willie Nelson's old music venue. (Yes, we still have the stage.) Lunch at Threadgill's, Doc's Motorworks, Home Slice, or any of a dozen funky food trailers could be a daily event for you. We're looking for a detail oriented Quality Assurance Engineer to join the team and help us continue to provide high quality software to our customers.
