Tymeshift is recruiting a QA Engineer
The workforce management solution built for the modern age is growing the Engineering team in Portugal!
About: Gone are the days of call centers and the old-school software that ran them. Today, customers expect to communicate on their terms through the channels they love, like email, live chat, and social. Companies use modern platforms like Zendesk to make this possible.
