Join Our Team - Web Application Quality Assurance Automation Specialist

Position: Web Application Quality Assurance Automation Specialist

Location: Shreveport, Louisiana

Description:
Bowman Systems L.L.C. is seeking a Web Application QA Automation Specialist. This position performs software quality assurance testing and recording keeping with a special emphasis on automated regression testing.

Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

 

  • Training: Through study and through using the software, the individual becomes an expert, self-taught user of all software under test. 
  • Manual Testing: The candidate develops explicit test-cases and performs some work ad hoc. The individual examines software under development, notes and rates flaws, logs those flaws, and checks the eventual repairs. In new applications, testing provides 100% functional coverage, testing every action the end-user can perform; first to demonstrate that it performs correctly when used appropriately, then to confirm that it does not crash when used improperly. In revised applications, testing provides 100% functional coverage of the changes and additions, and a module-by-module spot check of unmodified portions. The candidate participates in the rollout testing of most software releases.
  • Consulting: The individual uses expertise in our software to provide insights and analyses to help troubleshoot end-user problems and to fact-check written material. Attendance at cross-group meetings occurs only when necessary.
  • Automated Testing: The candidate develops and executes test scripts for complex regression tests. Concentrates scripting efforts on the high-end automation software—Mercury Quick Test. Writes test modules for components or test cases that are too large, complex, or mind-numbing for reliable manual testing. Automates testing of reports.
  • Filing: Keeps records of all work performed, to be stored eventually in the SQA digital archive.

Required Qualifications:

  • Programming skills
  • Strong Windows skills
  • Thorough knowledge of various web browsers
  • Basic web coding knowledge, including HTML, the Document Object Model, JavaScript, and Style Sheets
  • Experience in software development and release cycles

Desired Qualifications:

  • Commitment to continuous improvement
  • Experience with test-automation tools
  • Practical knowledge of Boolean logic and truth tables
