MOBILE QA TESTER
Position title: Full Stack Engineer
Reports to: QA Team Leader
We run a tool called Placeit used by hundreds of thousands of clients around the world. We serve over 2 million users world wide and we process a transaction every 2 minutes.
We also run several other products used by some 8 million people around the world but we’ll cover that later. We’ve just begun our expansion plans and would like you to be a part of it. We current have 190 people in our offices in Guadalajara but our engineering team is fairly small (20 people).
We started as an agency, called Freshout in 2008. We developed new products for companies such Yahoo, Telefonica, eBay. When we realized we couldn’t control the products we built through our clients, we started to invest in our own products. We bootstrapped our way to a product company in late 2014.
We’ve been profitable since the day we started so you don’t have to worry about us bleeding money and suddenly closing up shop because an investor pulled out.
All our staff including the CEO resides here in beautiful Guadalajara. We’ve been here for quite a few years and we don’t plan on leaving any time soon. We operate Placeit, Recordit and Empowerkit out of the same office.
This is not some satellite office where we send some of the “special” work. We invest heavily in the education and progress of each member of our team. We have full autonomy over what we build and there are no clients forcing our hand to build unnecessary features.
Placeit is used by everyone from Adobe to Yelp to Facebook to Google to Salesforce to IBM to Netflix. We’ve doubled in size over the past year and have thousands of paid subscribers.

How’s the work/life balance there?
Most of us are here between 9am to 6pm although some come earlier and leave a bit earlier. Some days they stay later and some days they leave earlier.
We generally keep an “adult policy” over these things. The idea is that you’re responsible and we’re not going to babysit you. We don’t really focus on the hours you spend in the office. Our focus is mostly on how efficient you are.
We’re flexible for people that want to start work earlier and leave earlier as well.
Can I work remotely?
We’re generally not considering remote workers at this point. We ideally want you to be here in our GDL office.
Will you pay for my relocation?
Do you guys help with my paperwork if I’m not a Mexican citizen?
What language do you guys use inside the office?
We tend to go between Spanish and English quite a bit but if you only speak English, that’s ok too.
