Min. Experience: Experienced

Join forces with Agosto, a one-of-a-kind Google Enterprise Premier Partner, software developer and cloud consulting firm. Agosto has service offerings across Google Enterprise; email & collaboration, IaaS, PaaS, Geo, Search and devices. Highly-awarded for their innovations and recognized by Inc., Wired, and MN High Tech Association.

 

At Agosto, our philosophy is build it, break it and then rebuild it better. That thinking is at the core of how we approach testing at Agosto. Unlike roles with similar names at the other companies, QA at Agosto aren't manual testers -- you write scripts to automate testing and create tools so developers can test their own code. As a Test Engineer, you navigate Agosto's codebase, identify weak spots and constantly design better and creative ways to break software and identify potential problems. You'll have a huge impact on the quality of Agosto's growing suite of products and services.

 

You use your knowledge of testing and testability to influence better software design, promote proper engineering practice, bug prevention strategies, testability, accessibility, privacy, and other advanced quality concepts across products.

 

Your Responsibilities:

  • Ensure a high level of quality of both Agosto products and projects.
  • As a senior member of the Software Engineering product team, you will be a “player/coach”. You will provide leadership and direction to the Quality Assurance Engineers, while also being a hands-on engineer.
  • Analyze and decompose a complicated software system and design a strategy to test the system.
  • Give direction and input into an overall Test Strategy
  • Create and document a test plan, with a strong emphasis on test automation.
  • Identify and track key QA metrics to share and report on overall software quality and progress.

 

Qualifications:

  • 7 + years experience with software QA
  • Experience with creation and execution of testing plans / reviewing functional specification documents.
  • Experience working within an agile development life cycle.
  • Experience with testing automation solutions and test management software tools
  • Ability to work with a small team and/or work as a standalone engineer.
  • Good working knowledge of object oriented concepts and application design principles.
  • Strong communication and organization skills with an attention to detail.
  • Ability to meet deadlines and commitments in an agile and fast-paced environment.
  • Knowledge of common testing methodologies for SaaS is a plus.
