Key job responsibilities

You will work to be able to understand software internals, debug complex problems including performance bottlenecks, and write automated tests in and/or using existing automated tools.
QA Engineers work with Software Development Engineers and Business Owners to understand business drivers and technical implementation of features.
QA Engineers also work with groups such as Product Management, User Interaction, and Customer Support to understand customer usage models and develop test plans and suites that approximate real-world environments and regression tests.
You must have experience in diagnosing project release problems and taking corrective action, such as escalating as needed, to resolve and achieve results. Our QAEs are also responsible for driving our software development process toward quality-centric methodologies and for reporting on test progress, metrics, and issues.
