    At Nuance, we empower people with the ability to seamlessly interact with their connected devices and the digital world around them.  We are creating a world where technology thinks and acts the way people do by designing the most human, natural, and intuitive ways of interacting with technology.   Our nimble technology uses analytics and advanced algorithms to transform the inanimate into animate and reduce complicated processes into simple ones.  

    Join our Healthcare team...caring for clinicians the way they care for patients. Beyond words. We create technology that lets clinicians capture and document care quickly and easily so they can focus their attention on their patients.

    Job Summary


    Nuance is currently building a completely new product which combines our successful speech recognition technology with language understanding to take even more work off doctor’s shoulders. This product will be highly innovative and is intended to achieve something currently not available anywhere in the medical (or any other) market. The new software will be running in the cloud and needs to be highly scalable to support the anticipated user group – a significant percentage of medical professionals in the United States. 


    The QA Automation Lead we are looking for will be in a position to build up infrastructure and a team ensuring the new product is reliable for both doctors and their patients. We are looking for somebody innovative, not afraid to try new things, curious and able to get things done quickly. While a lot of experience developing test software in a professional environment is required, we need a person who is able to learn new things quickly. Therefore, no specific programming language is required and it is assumed that the candidate will be able to pick up the specific toolset currently used on the go.

    The focus of this position will be building up infrastructure for testing web applications, and cloud software components for the new product.


    In addition they will have leadership and mentorship responsibilities for other team members across different regions, at the same time not be afraid to get their hands dirty and write tests from scratch. Therefore previous experience testing in these areas will be important.

    You will be working with an enthusiastic and highly skilled International team. The team designing the new product is currently located in Vienna and Boston. Ability to communicate clearly and succinctly both in written and spoken English is a must. Experience working with a distributed team is a plus.



    Number of Years of Work Experience: 8


    Required Skills:

    • Ability to quickly learn new technologies and programming languages
    • Excellent verbal and written communication
