Data Quality Assurance Engineer, Senior

A little bit about us:

We are throwing out the rule book on traditional Business Intelligence (BI) and developing a cutting-edge data analytics and visualization platform for a new breed of business analysts and data scientists. Our team consists of business analysts, experience designers, dashboard developers, and web developers working together to make this new platform awesome and useful... But it also needs to be consistent, reliable, and accurate.

The job:

We want to bring proven DevOps methods and tools to our mixed reporting, analytics, and software development environment, blending them with traditional Quality Assurance processes to achieve better results and greater agility for our team.

  • You will develop and implement an innovative Quality Assurance program to ensure our data products are accurate and satisfy all audit and compliance regulations.
  • You will assess our current state processes and tools, understand our goals and challenges, and then design a new program that the team can begin using immediately.
  • You will implement and manage the new program, including hands-on use of any new or existing Quality Assurance tools, as well as any remaining manual processes.
  • You will perform all required Quality Assurance activities using existing tools and processes while the new program is still under development
  • You will develop and perform manual and automated testing for Tableau dashboards and data sources, including Oracle databases
  • You will develop and perform manual and automated testing for SharePoint web sites developed in HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS
  • You will manage all aspects of product testing, including testing new requirements from a quality assurance perspective, analyzing business requirements, and participating in meetings from design to delivery
  • You will produce any necessary documentation and training for the new Quality Assurance program and any of its artifacts
  • You will work directly with our end-users to facilitate User Acceptance Testing, often needing to wrangle busy people at different levels in the company to provide the feedback that our team needs to move forward

A little bit about you:

  • You have a relentless ambition to automate everything possible to maximize consistency and effectiveness, and to minimize manual efforts
  • You embrace challenges and respond with creativity and experimentation to generate solutions
  • You enjoy working on a cross-functional, agile team that requires frequent communication, cross-training, and doing what it takes for the team to succeed as a whole
  • You are a good communicator; whether it is face-to-face, over the phone, over email or chat, you can be professional, direct, and clear, and you can build good relationships with others that facilitate getting what you need to get your job done
  • You take pride in your work; the bare minimum is not enough for you, and your goal is not just to finish, but to make an impact

Basic Qualifications:

  • 5+ years of experience with Software Quality Assurance
  • 5+ years of experience with testing Web applications and front-end applications using JavaScript, HTML5, CSS3, including communicating with back-end applications via various APIs
  • 3+ years of experience with DevOps concepts like Continuous Integration (CI) and Test-Driven Development (TDD)
  • 3+ years of experience with Agile development and testing tools, including JIRA, GitHub, and Jenkins
