You will guard the quality of our products and ensure we have short feedback loops in our delivery cycles, allowing us to understand the quality of our web and mobile experiences at all stages, always challenging norms and communicating risks to quality. In this role, you will drive all aspects of testing, with an emphasis on using your automation and QA expertise to help our delivery teams design, develop, and maintain sustainable automated test suites, as well as incorporate Exploratory testing into our delivery process.

Q/A Tester Responsibilities

- You will work closely with developers and product owners to understand full scope of features and pair with developers to advise and build automation scripts (unit, integration, end-to-end, UI) ensuring code coverage and quality
- You will create, execute, improve and maintain automation test scripts through best practices, closely monitor test results for swift feedback, and participate in peer code reviews
- You will advocate and evangelize good testing practices, like pair programming, code reviews, Test Driven Development (TDD), Exploratory Testing, Behaviour-Driven Development (BDD), Continuous Integration (CI), and Continuous Delivery (CD)
- You will engage in all phases of the agile development cycle, clearly and actively voice out concerns and strive to tackle technical debt with the team
- You will identify, analyze, report and document defects, questionable functions and inconsistencies in product content and outlook during the design and implementation phase
- You will review code commits and ensure the right level of tests are included
- You will conduct Manual testing when required and lead and conduct Exploratory Testing sessions with the team

What you can expect from us:
- An environment where you’re encouraged to share and act on your ideas
- Flexible work hours in a central downtown location
- A welcoming, relaxed office with a casual dress code
- A culture committed to giving; every year we donate time and resources in our communities
- Team lunches with a generous supply of healthy snacks
- A fun, dynamic team that works and plays every day; great ideas can come as easily during an impromptu hallway soccer match or social team outing

Q/A Tester Mandatory Skills

- You have a strong ability to learn and adapt in a fast paced changing environment
- You have solid programming background, experience with Javascript, NodeJS
- You have an understanding of QA methodologies and strong ‘hands on’ experience developing test scripts for functional, performance, and regression testing that include automated, ad-hoc, and manual testing elements
