Job Description
Who We Are

At Framework, we believe the time has come for products that are designed to last. Founded in San Francisco in 2019, our mission is to remake Consumer Electronics to respect people and the planet.

We've started with two award-winning products, the Framework Laptop 13 and 16. Our laptops are thin, light, high-performance notebooks that can be upgraded, customized, and repaired in ways that no other notebook can. Alongside this, we've launched the Framework Marketplace to enable an ecosystem of parts and modules. We've seen a fantastic reception to both of our laptops from customers and reviewers from outlets like Linus Tech Tips, Ars Technica, and multiple Wirecutter reviews (including a recommendation among the best Windows Ultrabooks of 2024), along with making TIME's Best Inventions lists in 2021 and 2023. As a company, we were #35 on Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2022.

We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus, and have closed multiple rounds of funding to fuel our roadmap. Even better (and maybe unusually for an early stage startup), we're in a financially healthy position going forward off of our product revenue. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!

We're seeking a passionate Quality Assurance Engineer to join our expanding Framework e-commerce Marketplace team. As a key player in shaping the future of our user experience and online store, you'll collaborate closely with our Engineering team to rigorously test new features and functionality on our platform (https://frame.work).

This role is ideal for someone with strong experience in both automated QA tools and comprehensive manual testing of web applications. We expect the role to be roughly 60% automation work and 40% manual testing. Your dedication to quality and Framework's mission of creating sustainable and ethical consumer electronics are essential for success in this role.

We strive to create a collaborative, supportive, and transparent culture and we are invested in the growth of the people who join our team. We look for people who are motivated to learn from others and to help each other grow, people who are open to new ideas and ways of doing things, and people who want to experiment their way forward. If you’re not sure that you’re 100% qualified, but are up for the challenge - we want you to apply.

This is a remote position based in the US or Canada. You will ideally be located in the Eastern time zone.
