Airtable

San Francisco
Airtable's mission is to democratize software creation, similar to the way the Macintosh democratized personal computing. Software is arguably the most important creative medium of the last century, yet most people cannot build their own software. Airtable gives people and companies a “lego kit” they can use to create custom applications on their own, regardless of technical experience.

We’ve raised $170M in venture funding, including most recently a 100M Series C from Benchmark, Thrive, and Coatue.

As a Contract Quality Assurance Analyst you will develop test cases and debug issues that our users might encounter. You’re not just testing across devices and browsers, but across teams, applications, and use cases. There are regular product additions and improvements, so you’ll be able to shape and improve the Airtable experience for users everywhere.
