Description

We are looking to add a new QA Automation Engineer to support our Technology Team.

In this role you would monitor every phase of the development process to ensure that the design, software, and websites adhere to company standards. Launches of websites and timely software releases are a key to success, so it's vital for releases to meet target dates and stay within budget.

  • Develop and apply testing processes for new and existing products to meet client needs.
  • Collaborate with internal teams (e.g. developers and product managers) to identify system requirements.
  • Monitor debugging process results.
  • Perform and document risk analysis.
  • Integrate the recording of test progress and results with appropriate reporting tools.
  • Develop standards and procedures to determine product quality and release readiness.
  • Drive innovation and streamline overall testing processes.
  • Identify, isolate, and track bugs throughout testing.
  • Identify any potential problems that users might encounter.
    Perform manual and automated testing.
    Research and analyze product features being tested.
  • Research new tools, technologies, and testing processes.

  • Experience with testing languages such as Gherkin.
  • Experience with frameworks like Selenium (Java) for executing scripts in functional and regression testing.
  • Experience with tools like Cucumber for Behavior Driven Development (BDD).
  • Experience with SEO spider website crawlers like Screaming Frog.
  • Able to self-manage and prioritize daily work with limited direction.
  • Exceptional organizational skills and a strong attention to detail.
  • Familiarity with both Agile and Waterfall lifecycles of delivery.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to communicate effectively between different disciplines (development, creative, marketing, admissions, etc.) and personality types.
  • Experience working collaboratively with a tech team.

Preferred qualifications

  • Experience with Monday.com, Confluence, Google G-Suite, Trello, Smartsheets, Jira, and BitBucket.
  • Experience working with team collaboration tools such as Slack.

An Insider's view of Everspring

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The vibe in the office is casual and collaborative. There is a lot of teamwork cross-functionally. You're exposed to a wide range of operations that don't only focus on your specific role, but the business as a whole. There are many opportunities to learn from your colleagues in marketing, learning design, and technology!

Aggie

Client Engagement Manager

What does your typical day look like?

What excites me about working in Admissions is that you never know what you're getting yourself into each day. I live for the challenging questions thrown at me and overcoming their obstacles or objections. At the end of the day, I'm honored to be a part of their journey...my goal is to leave them with an impression they'll never forget.

Jeffrey

Team Lead - Admissions Advisor

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I have been given the opportunity to go from managing a few projects on a handful of technologies to managing the product strategy for over three dozen products with multiple projects running concurrently. Everspring has given me the opportunity to gain my stride by providing me the freedom to exercise my creativity and technology domain knowledge.

Abuzar

Director of Product Development

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Growing up, my father always used to sit me down and talk to me about life. My biggest takeaway from those talks is that I should always surround myself with good people.
Good people are the most important asset an organization can have, and Everspring definitely has this asset. Our culture promotes creativity, collaboration and personal growth.
