Quality Assurance Engineer, Senior

The Opportunity: 

When a user tries a new system, they expect it to be intuitive and run smoothly. Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful information systems—and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, an experienced quality assurance analyst who knows how to thoroughly test software and ensure that our team releases the best system possible. As a quality assurance expert, you’ll work with testers, developers, and engineers on a team that evaluates developed systems for an IT modernization effort. You’ll develop and implement manual and automated testing scripts based on application functional requirements and help provide technical leadership and direction to our testing team.

Using a modern automated test framework, you’ll generate problem resolutions and track quality assurance standards to observe how the system performs, then document the results and communicate defects to the development team so they can start improving the tool. You’ll expand upon your experience in various types of testing, including manual, automation, usability, user acceptance testing, and testing process improvement. This is an opportunity to broaden your skills in documenting and solving system deficiencies as well as leading and mentoring others. Work with us to develop technical solutions that improve government services to the public.
