Quality Engineering & Software QA Writer

Quality Engineering & Software QA Writer

We’re looking to build a long-term relationship with a writer experienced in quality engineering and quality assurance in the software industry. Someone with a love of writing and storytelling who is also passionate about, and experienced in, managing QA/QE initiatives.

You’ll be pitching, researching, and writing articles on The QA Lead, a forward-thinking publication and community for technology leaders who care about developing the people and processes to build high-quality software.

Our mission is to provide our community with the most reliable knowledge and tools for leading QA teams and delivering better software.

You’ll be working on a per-piece contract basis offering flexibility to support your busy schedule. You could write one article per month, or one every other month, for example.

Topics we cover are:

  • Automation: test automation, artificial intelligence, machine learning
  • Data: data quality, data engineering, data security
  • Emerging testing disciplines such as DevOps testing & blockchain testing
  • Leadership & management: leading QA teams, managing people & stakeholders
  • Careers: info about careers in software QA, career advice, career stories

You’re a great fit if you…

  • Love writing about QA/QE topics, ranging from the practical to the philosophical side of the profession. You love sharing knowledge and want to make a name for yourself as an expert in this niche. Software QA is actually your thing. We’re looking for thought leaders (or thought leaders “to-be”) with experience in the field.
  • Own your work—and want a platform to build an authentic relationship with a wide audience. We care deeply about our rapidly-growing audience and want to publish best-in-class content they will absolutely love.


  • Professional experience in software development, QA, or managing QA teams (3+ years)
  • English writing skills and a willingness to improve
  • Adaptable voice and tone (we have a style guide to help)
  • The ability to breathe life and inject humour into traditionally dry topics.

Nice to haves

  • Previous writing experience, either on a personal or company blog
  • Experience writing SEO-friendly, long-form blog articles.

Contract Details

  • This is not a typical “content marketing” copywriting job. Instead, we want you to become a strategic contributor to the publication, share your articles on social media, and contribute to the voice of the brand
  • Article length: from 800 to 2,000+ words


  • You’ll be working in tandem with a friendly, multi-disciplinary team experienced in content production, digital marketing, community building, and SEO
  • You have the chance to work on interesting projects and have a byline on a trustworthy, reputable blog
  • Flexible workload
  • Flexible schedule
  • Ongoing & long term work.
