What Is Employee Growth Rate & Why Is It Important?

RStudio is seeking a Quality Assurance Engineer with strong automation and testing skills to join the RStudio Connect team. RStudio Connect is a publishing platform for the work Data Science teams create. Using Connect, our customers can securely manage their data science assets, like interactive apps, APIs, models, and scheduled reports, all in one place. Those assets can then be shared with team members, others within their organization, or even external customers. While data scientists publish to the platform, often IT professionals are the administrators of the platform. We provide capabilities to meet the needs of this diverse set of users.
