Sr. QA Business Analyst Who Wears Many Hats (And Does Other Stuff Good Too)

$90,000-$125,000 / YEAR

What. Is. THIS…? A Job Description for ANTS!??

(Stack Overflow says to not use a generic title. So, originally, “QA Human” and “Fungible Quality Unit” were on the table. Laughing at the bad jokes of the VP of Product is not a job requirement, however. Making fun of the VP of Engineering may be, however.)

Le Job Overview (The Job Overview)

We’re looking for a QA / Business Analyst to join our tiny-but-mighty product team and play an integral role in launching our newest product line — Dorsata Real World Data (RWD). We need someone who enjoys wearing multiple hats and relishes juggling both business analysis & QA responsibilities in a “move fast, but actually don’t break things” environment.

  • immersing yourself in business requirements, documenting workflows and confirming data & workflow needs before building
  • getting things done in the convergent world of execution via good planning, clear communication, and hands-on project management while working closely with product and engineering team members


  • Engage internal customers & external stakeholders to document business requirements.
  • Work with engineers & other stakeholders to clarify requirements during the feature lifecycle.
  • Take a leading roll in QA & release management by creating & running test plans, collaborating on progress, maintaining quality thresholds, and communicating our development status effectively.
  • Write user stories with acceptance criteria, success metrics, and sufficient depth of explanation through the lens of customer and business goals.


  • Scrappiness – ability to get things done, even as conditions change and new information is presented.
  • Curiosity – ability to explore and synthesize a large amount of domain knowledge quickly
  • Well organized – with the ability to pay attention to the details while keeping a bead on the broader context.
  • Process focused – able to listen to multiple descriptions of need and build optimized workflows and technology solutions.

  • Good communicator – solid writing skills, and ability to clearly express goals & tradeoffs with a variety of people.

About Dorsata

Dorsata’s clinical workflow intelligence platform is designed to work both top of and inside of the existing electronic health records (EHRs) that our customers use. The Dorsata Prenatal Record -- our flagship product -- is an Vue/AngularJS/Rails SPA designed collaboratively with women’s health providers to support the way that they work & think -- not tell them how to work & think (or add additional clerical burdens to their already-busy day). We want practitioners of women’s health to feel like they are using a piece of software not only designed for them, but by them. More About Us : How We Interview & Hire Like many of the other startups you are currently perusing on stackoverflow/angellist/hired/reddit/linkedIn/etc., our interview process begins with an intro call to help you learn more about the role, for us to hear more about you, and to help the two of us decide if Dorsata is a mutual fit. If we move forward, the next step will be a more in depth call with us that dives into some problem solving about healthcare. We're small, so we also like to have people talk to our CEO. Benefits / Perks / CompHealth Insurance / Dental Market salary + equity participation opportunity We are remote first. If you like, go for an occasional stints in Antarctica, though the Internet might not actually work well there for Zoom. Fun, friendly & delightfully BS-free work environment "Kid-friendly" (2+ of us have infants & toddlers -- know how that goes? So do we.) Dog-friendly. (We're all remote anyway, but some of us really love dogs.)
