We are hiring contract Test Analyst for our client based in Menlo Park, California.
The Test Analyst must be capable of professional, clear communication with others and share test status and provide clarity on defect reports. Beyond just maintaining existing test cases, they are responsible for authoring new test cases as features are added and requirements change. As senior team members, TAIIs are expected to ramp up quickly on their teams, becoming experts in their areas of focus. As such, TAIIs prevent randomization of the engineering teams by reviewing the bugs reported in their areas to identify duplicates, asking bug creators for clarification when sufficient detail is not provided, and ensuring that bugs adhere to client bug reporting standards. TAIIs are also responsible for identifying test and process gaps and raising them to the leadership team.
Since this is a contract role, we cannot sponsor visas at this time or accept C2C candidates.
