Willis Towers Watson Tempe , AZ 85280
Quality Assurance Specialists (QAS) are members of a SCRUM team and are involved in the complete life-cycle of a software change. As a QAS you will participate in planning discussions with business stakeholders and development staff to determine how business problems and opportunities can be resolved/realized with enhancements to existing software and the creation of new software systems. Through the manual use and analysis of software systems deployed to QA you will identify errors in their design or implementation, and verbally communicate those flaws to the team while tracking the documented version electronically. When you designate a product is ready for release you will work with the end user or training department to create release notes and ensure that the product is understood, and that it will integrate seamlessly into Willis Towers Watson's operations. Once stakeholder and QA approval is in place, the QAS is responsible for conducting a production smoke test of deployed changes and triaging any error reports from operations concerning the use and adoption of the changes. As a QAS you will also be expected to "walk the process" by spending up to one day a week at our call-center operations personally triaging all errors that occur in production, and learning how to proxy the actions, behaviors, and mindset of the end user for any given software product you test. Location preferences are: Tempe, Arizona, South Jordan, Utah and Salt Lake City, Utah.
