Work With Us

Forio is an employee-owned, 20-person company based in San Francisco. We were founded in 2001 and we’ve been profitable since our inception.

We provide online software for predictive analytics and web-based simulations on topics like innovation, finance, global warming, urban planning, and healthy populations. Our customers include universities, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies.

Our recent projects include work with Harvard Business School producing several business games, MIT creating some environmental simulations, IBM, the CDC making a simulation around the health of US citizens, and the city of Portland, Oregon building a simulation around what Portland might be like in 25 years. All our simulations are available online and many are licensed under creative commons.

Open Positions

Forio is looking for a technical, energetic person who has experience in QA automation for services, web-based applications, and load testing. If you like a challenge, are comfortable scripting, willing to learn new technologies, and would like to work in a small (20 person) team in San Francisco, then this may be the job for you.

About You

The ideal candidate will have experience with black box testing (white box is a bonus), scripting in any JVM language (Java, Groovy, JRuby, etc.), web testing with Selenium, behavior driven development (especially Cucumber), and load testing with tools like Jmeter and/or Grinder. Being comfortable with by-hand testing is nice, but comfort with automation is the key here. Experience working with backend software engineers focused on Java development is also a plus.


Forio is a provider of JavaScript libraries, complex REST-based services (written in Java), and a platform that supports custom code built both in-house, and by our clients, in a number of languages (Python, R, Julia, Vensim, and growing). You would be the sole QA resource for the small but expert platform team, working closely with a few veteran engineers. This is an opportunity to sharpen your skills working on a rapidly scaling system, in all phases of automation

This is a full time position based out of our San Francisco office.

We also use the Epicenter platform ourselves to develop custom simulations, designed collaboratively with our customers.

We have an impressive list of clients including, but not limited to: IBM, Anheuser Busch, Procter & Gamble, SAP, government agencies, the CDC, and universities such as Harvard Business School, Wharton, and MIT.
