If the life of a Quality Assurance Analyst could be summed up in one song, it might be Limp Bizkit’s Y2K classic “Break Stuff” (to refresh your memory, the very ’complex’ chorus is “give me something to break”… over and over).

Before joining Pixafy my résumé consisted of jobs and internships at various large corporations. After interviewing and agreeing to join a startup like Pixafy, I wondered about how working for a company with 15 employees would differ from my past experiences of working with companies with 10,000 or more employees. I’ve worked in Scrum/Agile Project Management environments in the past; however, at Pixafy I am entrusted with managing large projects whose outcome can greatly affect Pixafy’s long-term sustainability.
That being said, I am certainly happy that I made the transition from becoming employee #28303 to someone whose ideas and suggestions are not only taken into consideration, but are also encouraged.

I could not be prouder of the work we produce.
