  • Evaluate, and work with engineering leadership to expand, automated test coverage based on business risk and efficiency impact
  • Ensure test planning, test framework, execution, and reporting is efficient, standardized, and coordinated
  • Log and track issues from testing; verify bug fixes and regression tests of other impacted features perform correctly; verify all releases before and after deployment to production
  • Work closely with product, design & engineering teams to help define quality criteria and quality metrics, and create specific use-case scripts to facilitate ad-hoc testing
  • Ensure the product, design & development teams understand test results with regard to passes, failures and tests still to be executed

  • Creating, socializing, and maintaining test plans
  • Automated testing tools like Selenium and CrossBrowserTesting.com, including a solid foundation in how they’re best used strategically and efficiently in line with business goals
