VIEW JOBS 10/16/2018 12:00:00 AM 2019-01-14T00:00 Senior/Principal Quality Engineer We are seeking an experienced professional software tester to help us achieve our mission of enabling student success through adaptive learning and placing actionable data in the hands of teachers through our i-Ready platform. Knowledge of a variety of testing techniques and approaches is essential. You'll be able to pick the most suitable for a given context and be able to explain the reasoning behind the chosen approach to different audiences. You know your heuristics from your oracles, and know how to get the defects fixed that you found. We do not require ISTQB / ISEB – but we don't hold it against you for having them. A good understanding of web applications is necessary – fluency in HTML and CSS and firm knowledge of HTTP is expected; knowledge of web services and Java are helpful too. A solid data background is also essential – fluency in SQL and relational databases is required, some knowledge of non-relational storage technologies, data warehouses, and dimensional modeling is a bonus. It is unlikely that anyone with less than 3 years' relevant experience will be suitable for this role, but we have been pleasantly surprised before. You'll be asked to test as part of a team or to be the sole tester on a project reporting to a QA Manager. Behaviors: * You are used to collaborating with developers, business owners, UI designers, customer service, and other testers. * You can analyze a story and identify ambiguities, gaps, and risks the team has not considered yet. * You rapidly discover important information about the product, and effectively communicate this to the appropriate stakeholders. * You create devious tests that uncover unexpected problems. * You know how to work with developers and product owners to get the defects you found fixed. * You naturally share your knowledge with others and enjoy learning from your peers. * You communicate test ideas with team members clearly and concisely, and incorporate feedback easily into your work. This role will require knowledge of: * Testing – you have studied and practiced a variety of test techniques and methodologies, and are familiar with prominent voices in the online testing community. * Test automation – you have an interest in test automation to a level where you can discuss the pros and cons of various automation approaches. To support this, you also have working knowledge of a modern programming language. * Agile software development – you understand the common methodologies (Scrum, Kanban, Crystal, Lean) and can articulate how a strong tester can best support their team in that context. * Self-motivated learning – you will be able to describe your approaches to gaining new knowledge and skills, and how you apply them to become a better tester. * Mentoring – you love to share knowledge and are good at it. You are comfortable training a new team member on the features you are responsible for testing, demonstrating interesting tools and techniques you have found to be effective to your team, and teaching inexperienced testers the fundamentals of testing. * Data technologies – you are very comfortable working with large volumes of data moving between different backend technologies to support both a data warehouse and near real-time reporting. You know how to apply various tools and techniques to work with large volumes of data. You can easily describe the differences between unions, joins, and pivots. * Web applications – you understand the key challenges related to building a multi-tenant high-volume web application responsible for sensitive student data supporting both desktop and mobile devices and can articulate your experience in this context. You are comfortable drawing an architecture diagram of the system under test. Key Skills: * You are great at modeling, questioning, generating, explaining, and elaborating on test ideas. * You can write SQL to verify data correctness, and are knowledgeable of other tools and techniques to help with data intensive testing. * You can search through logs or crash reports to help isolate and identify the root cause of issues, and are comfortable doing this from the command line. * You can make sense of large volumes of data to identify patterns which might be indicative of problems. * You have the ability to think playfully about serious matters. * You can make observations and assimilate them to a mental model of a situation, and change your mental model as new information becomes available. * You are able to describe defects in sufficient detail for a developer to understand and reproduce, and for business owners to understand user impact. * You know when automated testing is better than manual testing. * You know when manual testing is better than automated testing. * You have experience with distributed version control systems. * You are listened to. * You are skeptical. * You are passionate about great software. * You have strong user empathy and sense of UI aesthetic. * You solve hard problems independently and collaboratively. * You can see failure in success; and identity value in failure. * You can stand up for what you believe is right; and back down for what you realize is wrong. * You value critical thinking, curiosity, creative thinking, and analytical thinking. You are interested in metacognition and how it applies to software testing. Who should not apply: * DO NOT APPLY if you like writing verbose test plans and scripts before you start testing. * DO NOT APPLY if you need someone to tell you what to do. * DO NOT APPLY if you can't test without a set of requirements documents. Final note: We are looking for a candidate who will bring their passion for testing to our growing test team, and is interested in becoming a better tester while also encouraging and motivating others in the team to do the same. If most of the statements above describe you, demonstrate your attention to detail by writing a cover letter that describes why you fit our profile and your passion for testing.
