We have a few core requirements, they are:

  • Experience working in an Agile environment
  • Strong eye for detail and ability to quickly define defects

  • Previous agency experience is awesome!
  • SauceLabs testing experience is awesome!
  • Appium knowledge is super awesome!


Creativity and innovation are fueled by a little R&R. We value work-life balance above all else and bake it right in with benefits like:

  • 10 paid holidays (includes your birthday off!)
  • 15 days of paid vacation accrued your first year, 20 days after three years, and 25 days after five

We are a family and families take care of each other. We prove it with benefits like:

  • Health and dental coverage with 100% of employee premiums paid by Smashing Boxes
  • Short- and long-term disability insurance
  • Honor-system work-from-home sick leave plus two "I'm not working at all" sick days
  • Three months fully paid maternity leave; one month fully paid paternity leave

Plus we've got all the basics covered; and then some:

Thank you.
We’ll be in touch soon.
