Are you motivated by a need for things to be correct, and relish an attention to detail that makes you a kind of tough pill to swallow? We love to see it, and we’d love to hear from you!

At Expel, we’re taking a new approach to managed security. We spend our time trying to discover ways to keep our customers safe and our security analysts happy. We’re trying to meet our customers where they are—understanding a vast number of attacker tactics, security vendor capabilities, and customer requirements. And while we are innovating and adapting quickly we strive to maintain high levels of quality and continue to deliver value to our customers, internal and external.

Here at Expel we have adopted a broad view of quality that puts the onus on our whole team to deliver a valuable product. We believe that shifting left doesn’t negate the need for a tester, but instead requires testers to plug into every part of the feature development process.

You would help our developers design tests that provide maximum coverage with minimum excess. While they’re passionate about solving engineering problems, we need you to make sure they’re solving our customer’s problem; and if you’re someone who knows that more tests isn’t nearly as important as the right tests, well you should definitely apply.
