Quality Assurance Manager
About the role
Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web. We’re looking for a Quality Assurance Manager to help us guide several of our interdisciplinary teams through the Agile testing mindset as we ship software daily. Quality management is different at Webflow. We like to think of our managers more as coaches or mentors. They get their hands dirty from time to time, they feel the pain of their teammates and they see their teammates performing their day-to-day work.
