Software Quality Assurance Lead

Company: U.Group
Location: San Francisco
Posted on: February 25, 2021

Job Description:

Business Wire, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is the global market leader in press release distribution and regulatory disclosure. We are on a mission to redefine how organizations connect with their audiences - and that's just the beginning! Organizations, big and small, depend on us to accurately publicize market-moving news and multimedia, host online newsrooms and investor relations websites, and generate social engagements that continuously develop interactions with their target audience. Role Summary The software quality assurance team at Business Wire is a mix of QA engineers and test automation engineers working on a wide-array of applications ranging from legacy to cloud. We support multiple development teams in several product areas. We focus on continuous improvement and finding better ways to test so that we can deliver great software and products. We are a diverse team, and we are always learning. We are increasingly using automation to extend and improve our testing, but you will be heavily focused on manual testing and improving how we test manually. The software QA lead has deep technical and domain experience and provides team leadership through planning and coordinating test projects and company quality processes. The lead also provides mentorship to the QA Engineers through example and constructive guidance. You will provide tactical leadership during test projects, adjusting priorities to support the test and quality needs for the Business Wire applications. You will be continually pushing the boundaries of what (and how) we test, and you will constantly be looking for ways to improve our processes to yield ever-better quality outcomes. Role Responsibilities

  • Partner with development and Product teams to understand features, and then plan the test projects.
  • Perform functional area mapping to identify tests, and coordinate the writing of those tests in our test case management tool.
  • Partner with the test automation engineers to identify and prioritize automatable tests.
  • Partner with the Release Manager to identify and coordinate testing for deploy events, and improve that test coverage.
  • Maintain quality dashboards for test project health, report on test project status to stakeholders, and maintain the visibility into the QA team's planning and activities.
  • Run test automation as needed, locally or as build system jobs.
  • Run manual tests, lots of manual tests. Automation is important, but manual testing will be the majority of your focus to start.
  • Maintain a broad and deep understanding of our applications (which includes web sites, APIs, SaaS integrations, cloud native services, and more).
  • Provide procedural, technical, and professional guidance and support to the engineers on the team. Skills and Qualifications
    • Excellent written and verbal skills, and a demonstrated ability for complex problem solving and fine detail work.
    • Self-motivated, self-directed, able to work independently, and perform multiple tasks under minimal supervision.
    • Comfortable working on complex issues where analysis of situations or data requires an in-depth evaluation of variable factors. Able to exercise judgment in selecting methods, techniques and evaluation criteria for obtaining results.
    • Good understanding of product life cycle, including software development methodologies, design, and implementation.
    • Experience handling strategic test planning, test resource planning and test project risk assessment.
    • Must have a solid foundation of software test experience, extensive experience across business domains, and a strong grasp of quality assurance philosophies and practices. We talk "test" a lot here.
    • Must be comfortable with a broad range of applications types and interfaces, both as applications-under-test and as tools. Experience
      • 5-10 years of QA experience showing increasing skill and responsibility; you should have a deep understanding of QA standards and software project lifecycle.
      • 3 years of experience coordinating test resources on test projects, coordinating projects with other teams, and mentoring and training QA staff.
      • Some experience writing automated tests. Hands on experience with test automation beyond Selenium would be a bonus.
      • Extensive experience with the validation of enterprise-class software applications.
      • Experience with Agile methodologies, mastery of testing in an agile context.
      • Experience with open-source test tools, like Selenium and Appium.
      • Experience with Test Case Management tools.
      • Experience with distributed version control systems, like git. Business Wire is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status. Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance and other similar state laws and local ordinances, and its internal policy, Business Wire will also consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
