You want to change how work gets done.  We’re here to help you make that happen.  We improve the way people work through process management and automation.  Since the company’s founding in 2006, our employees have helped customers and partners worldwide accelerate business results by digitally transforming workflows – thereby improving how people work. 

About the role:

Nintex measures quality by the amount of value the engineering ecosystem creates as it meets stakeholders' needs. Our vision is to establish a quality engineering culture where all participants are empowered to take ownership of our quality transformation – creating value instead of ensuring value. This vision is achieved by understanding what quality attributes result in value, using appropriate metrics to measure the value produced, and developing capabilities that resolve issues and drive increased value. The quality processes and practices developed as the vision unfolds need to be shared and evolved to broaden and accelerate value delivery across the Nintex enterprise.
