About Us

At Port 443 we work together, laugh together, and eat a lot of donuts together. (Have you seen our Instagram? It’s basically a food blog.)  

Our products (My Music Staff, TutorBird & AthletaDesk) are always evolving, making for an exciting and dynamic environment. Every day, we’re connecting with thousands of users all around the world. If you ask what they love about us, they’ll tell you that we really listen to their needs and go above and beyond to help them. Our members are at the heart of everything we do. Their feedback and ideas help to shape our products, and at the end of the day, we’re here because of them…  

…and because of the donuts.

Your responsibilities will include: 

  • Collaborating with internal teams to grasp product requirements for effective testing

Meet the QA Team!

Ojas is our Software Developer in Test, or as we like to think of him… our Bug Exterminator! He spends his days developing and performing tests on our products to uncover any bugs or issues for the team to fix before deploying changes. He’s also an absolute ray of sunshine who brings such a positive energy into the office! Even the most pessimistic team members can’t help but smile when Ojas is around 😊  

Todd has the perfect dad joke for every conversation and the best track record on Untappd! As QA Analyst & IT Coordinator, he handles escalated bugs, tries to “break” pre-release features (so we can fix them, of course!), aaaaand deals with any incidents involving coffee spills & laptops 🙈 You can always count on Todd for his quick wit, rapid-fire puns, and impressive bowling skills at our Annual Bowling Bash!
