Overview

Poll Everywhere is a 60-person, rapidly growing startup. Our company turns a presentation into a two-way conversation. Audiences can use their own mobile devices to vote, submit ideas, or engage in competitions – every activity changes the presenter’s slides in real time. We’re proud to be self-funded and thriving. Over 75% of the Fortune 1,000 use us to engage their audiences. We have millions of presenters, educators, and corporate learning professionals using our product globally.

The QA Automation Engineer role is critical to delivering on our promise to presenters, instructors, and event organizers. People take a risk by introducing live polling to their presentations and the quality of our software needs to give them confidence. If we ship a bug that ruins a presentation even once, we lose a customer.
