As a Software Tester, you can work within various departments. Most of the test work is done at Product Development, but there are also more and more test challenges within Delivery and Data Conversion.
Challenges like Quality Assurance and Test Automation
As a Software Tester you are responsible for the preparation and execution of test plans. You are actively involved in the analysis of test results and the reporting thereof. You base your test on the functional design that the Functional Designer has drawn up. You use tools such as Atlassian Jira, FitNesse, SOAPUI and a database tool, Excel, an FTP client, putty, etc. In addition, as a Software Tester you are responsible for Quality Assurance: making statements about the quality of the software. You help with system and regression tests. We also have Software Testers on staff who are involved in Test Automation.
Opportunities for growth are in the area of Management or you can become a Specialist in the functional or technical field. You can also think along with our Test Competence Center that is concerned with improving our processes.
Additionally, you can expand your position by helping our Learning & Development department improve the course offer. You can help with job interviews or act as a mentor for new employees.
