Tester and Quality Assurance job examples

Test Analyst

You'll review requirements, write and review test scripts and user documentation. You’ll manage stakeholders and test cross browsers. Any mobile or load testing experience would be of benefit, as well as any knowledge of Selenium IDE, Behat, JIRA, gitlabs, PHP, MySQL or .Net, SQL and others for Microsoft stack roles.

You will define success criteria for the build and launch of new sites and projects, as well as test web projects for functionality, accuracy and adherence to the agreed web standards and design. Measuring test coverage and prioritising test focus will be your responsibility, on top of undertaking manual testing and setup. The main focus of your role can be to create and maintain a suite of Behat tests and to develop a company’s testing efforts.

Senior Website Tester

You'll ensure the highest quality in business products. You may work across a multitude of devices, operating systems and browsers, including desktop, mobile and tablet. You will be responsible for manual testing of online website developments. You often use automated testing tools. Your responsibility will be to thoroughly and meticulously test new developments, with issues and improvements identified and passed back to the developers prior to release to a live environment.

You’ll conduct manual testing of web developments across multiple devices, operating systems and browsers including mobile, tablet, IOS and Android; positive and negative testing as well as a limited amount of automated testing, possibly alongside external automated testing providers. You may also provide full test estimates covering the entire testing cycle from test planning, test case writing, test execution, regression testing and retests. 

Web Tester

You’ll be evaluating and improving current test processes. You may be reporting to a Testing lead, testing a range of websites and web applications for functionality and accuracy, possibly with a highly skilled team of designers, developers and project managers. Within the role you often need to be a self-managed team player, managing your own time and being able to cope with multiple projects concurrently.

You may be responsible for pre-launch website testing and are seen as the expert within the digital team. Essentially you'll be testing websites for functionality and accuracy through manual and increasingly automated QA activities. For this, you often need to have experience in areas including test analysis, system functional testing, regression testing and system integration testing.

You’ll need a high level of automated testing skills on both web and device (Selenium / Browserstack). It’s expected that you’ll be familiar with HTML and CSS and that you have an understanding of some CMS. You often need to have experience of working with devs to plan, design and create automated tests for releases.

If you have any of the following highly desirable skills that would be fantastic; ISEB/ISTQB, Automated testing knowledge, software testing (n-tier/enterprise), API testing, database testing, Windows scripting (VB, Powershell etc), TestRail, Redmine or Ranorex.
