The QA Team

Our mission is to allow people throughout the world to turn data into dollars by rewarding our users for their attention. Current’s QA team is responsible for maintaining our high quality standards through the creation of detailed test documentation, manual bug hunting session, bug triaging, designing, building, and maintaining efficient, reusable, and reliable automated tests. The QA team consists of 2 people, with goals to hire at least one additional person by January 2020.

We’re in the midst of growing the company and creating a wide array of exciting new functionality.  In addition to building features that our users love, there are a few behind-the-scenes projects currently in progress. We are…
  • automating our iOS/Android test suite.
  • moving test cases management and documentation to TestRail.
  • supporting the larger effort of moving to continuous software release and testing.
The engineering/product team works in a typical agile setup. The team operates on 2-week sprints, with the regular planning and retrospective meetings. The backend team releases to production 1-3 times per week, and the iOS/Android teams release their work at the end of the sprint.

The team varies between working collaboratively and independently. We want everyone to feel encouraged to test a feature from idea through development and post-release all on their own. But, some problems are best solved together, whiteboarding sessions, and discussions are frequent.


We rely heavily on the following technologies:
  • TestRail for our Test Case and Test Documentation main application.
  • EndTest for creation of automated tests.
  • BrowserStack as device farm used for automated tests
  • JIRA for bug management and for general maintenance of software development process.
  • Instabug for bug reporting
  • We communicate with each other primarily via Slack.

  • Maintain our sky-high quality standards.
