PacketFabric is looking for a Software Engineer in Test! This person will join a team of engineers, helping ensure our releases, integrations, and network continue to perform as our customers expect. PacketFabric redefines how companies procure, consume, and manage their network connectivity.
You love testing and making sure everything works! You create meticulous integration tests and have an eye for finding those edge cases that software engineers miss. You enjoy digging into complex systems and ensuring all parts of it work as expected.
