Quality Assurance Tester (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 May 2015
I typical day for myself would include being in charge of the organization of all system defects that are currently uncovered in our system. This would include a dashboard that I developed and testing to confirm that they are actual system defects.
Then I would be required to develop and review Quality Assurance test scripts for upcoming and ongoing development project. After Script are completed and signed off I am required to confirm that the test environment is set-up correct are ready for myself and my other team members to able to properly test approved scenarios.
One of the biggest obstacles that I come across is when setting up test environments sometime deployment is not correctly completed or not completed on time which causes the testing time to be shortened, causing myself to have to put extra hours to properly complete the projects within the project deadlines.
The company has a good mix of tenured and new employees, bringing the team closer to catching up with the times. Management fosters teamwork and ensures that all employees have work-life balance. The challenging area if the company is to resolve gaps in processes and systems that were built several years ago. This can be quite challenging but at the same time fuels the team to strive to bridge those gaps at a steady pace.
Challenging, flexible and fun. Constantly changing work environment.
