Software Quality Assurance Analyst

Posted 2 February by Adecco UK Limited Easy Apply Ended

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Software Quality Assurance Analyst/Tester to join my client - a leading insurance company right in the city centre of Coventry.

Reporting to the System Architect & Project Manager, you will be responsible for the quality and testing all changes to the platform that make up my client's Global Dealer Networking software against the requirements and any issue logged and reported; ensuring that your broad workload is scheduled and managed effectively, the resulting functionality checked and tested, leading to projects being delivered on time.

Usually working proactively to meet ambitious deadlines, you will use your technical and communication skills to liaise with colleagues and clients to identify defects, and translate non-technical specifications into technical terminology.

In constant use by clients worldwide, the Global Dealer Networking platform has a foundation in traditional technologies including Web forms, TSQL, SSRS, SSIS; while over recent years the team has incorporated AJAX, and JQuery, to enable the building of newer functionality within the platform, allowing it to continue to lead in our marketplace.

Your appreciation of these technologies will be sound, enabling you to work effectively with both technical teams and business teams to ensure that the platform has been delivered in accordance with the client's expectations on both functionality and quality, and will be expected to provide insight as to how this comprehensive platform can evolve and adapt in the future.
