Reason the position is open: newly created
Scope: This person will be transforming quality control – very cool role!
Team Size: There will be a team of offshore testers that they will oversee. This person will operate from the existing test lead role, but the job responsibilities will mean they will need to collaborate in new ways with DevOps/Systems and Development teams.
Most Important Qualifications & Why:
- This person needs to be technical: A software engineer with some recent developer-in-test role would likely work. Not looking for someone who is a quality manager with just a bit of tech background.
- Open to Junior, mid or senior really. Most important is showing relevant experience where they have demonstrated success in the JD’s job duties and requirements. *If you have a Junior candidate whose maturity stands out and you think they’d be good, I’d be open to reviewing them.
- Note on the DevOps experience: Azure DevOps has a CICD pipeline and is mentioned as just one example. If they have experience with other build/deploy pipelines, such as Gitlab CICD, Travis, TeamCity, etc, that’s fine. It’s more important that they understand the concept.
