Are you anxious to work on real cutting-edge technology? Or wondering how to break that compensation ceiling?  Maybe it’s just a change in routine you’re looking for.  Consider stepping up your game, and entering the world of Software Quality Assurance (SQA) Testing.

A coder, developer or programmer already has many of the skills needed to succeed as a SQA tester. Familiarity with multiple programming languages, critical thinking skills, complex problem analysis, organizational abilities, communications skills– all these are part of the SQA tester’s tool kit. Tenacity, thoroughness and creativity are traits inherent to the successful software tester. The next step is to become experienced in or certified in manual and automated testing tools.

The SQA engineer or tester will develop and implement methods and standards to ensure the delivery of a product free of defects. Creating test cases, developing scenarios, implementing the tests, documenting bugs, re-testing, are all part of the testing environment.

Our clients are looking for SQA engineers and testers who have experience with such tools as HP/Mercury LoadRunner or QuickTest Professional (QTP), IBM Rational Tester (RFT), and Borland SilkTest. Experience with Agile scrum methodology and Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)/Web Services are also required.

Secret clearances are a plus for federal work, but not necessarily mandatory. However, the ability to obtain a clearance is required for these high level roles.
