Punchkick QA is responsible for ensuring all functional expectations come together as gracefully as possible. Boiled down, QA is a system of checks and balances and—within an agile environment, where waterfall conditions are not apparent—the checks and balances system has the potential to quickly break down. Time management, self-motivation, thinking outside the box, and working as an integral member of several project teams are all crucial qualities for a successful QA and we encourage all candidates with past QA experience to reach out.

Summary

The part-time Punchkick QA job description can be broken down into three activities:

  • Testing
  • Documenting
  • Meetings

TESTING

The core of the QA position lies in testing and bug logging to ensure a more end-user-friendly experience. Testing encompasses everything from ensuring Acceptance Criteria is functional per specification (across the span of a project development), ensuring test cases are created per spec, black box testing, smoke testing, regressions testing, and beyond.

High-level testing tasks, testing tools, and general expected understandings include:

  • Document bugs/issues in Jira
  • Test Case creation based on documented scenarios
  • Xcode and Android Studio (to build commits/code to device and virtual tools)
  • Browsers (ex. Chrome, Firefox, Safari, IE)
  • iOS and Android devices (and have an understanding of the latest, minus 2, operating system versions per those platforms)
  • Versioning (at ex. A commit level), regression, bug within a bug concept
  • Distinguishing between a bug and UX decisions

DOCUMENTING

Documentation is invaluable and often becomes a cyclical cycle of never-ending considerations. That said, documentation is important, and finding the right balance, per project, is part of the role. Most Punchkick QA documentation can be broken down into two major categories: logging bugs and creating test cases. Considerations for each include:

  • For bug-logging, ensuring all bugs are logged with adequate, and enough detail.
  • For Test Case creation, ensuring all functional features are accounted for, and assessing the potential volume of regressions, per project.

High-level Documentation tasks, tools, and general expected understandings include:

  • Bug entry in Jira (a daily task)
  • Test Case creation (a per Sprint cadence task)
  • Excel, Google Sheets, LICEcap, Sketch, VMs, Charles, SourceTree

MEETINGS

Meetings at Punchkick aim to serve a very specific purpose. Be it Sprint Planning, Sprint Retro, a 15 minute daily stand-up, the goal is to ensure the team regroups to assess specific projects. The open office environment runs parallel with this idea—being open and willing to converse with team members, in such an environment, is a must.

High-level Meeting tasks, tools, and general expected understandings include:

  • Ensure Jira is updated daily
  • Ensure Test Cases are updated (ideally, per a Sprint cadence)
  • Come with answers and questions, and leave with answers (so, come prepared with an understanding of your projects at at least a Sprint level).
  • Are comfortable (and capable) talking to clients, and all Punchkick team members (APs, SMs, Dev, Design, Marketing, Business)

Insider's spotlight

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

As a new mom, juggling being a parent and my career, seemed intimidating. But I was wrong. Punchkick is supportive of my new schedule as a mom and encourages me to focus on my family. Their support not only motivates me to work harder, but gives me confidence that I’ve chosen the right place to call my work home.

What does your typical day look like?

Every day at Punchkick looks completely different and that's one of the reasons we love it so much. There are always new projects, new initiatives, and new ideas that allow employees to interact with and learn from every member of the Punchkick team.

Katharine Shindoll

Senior Marketing Strategist

The best ideas at Punchkick come from within our team, and one of the best things I can do to foster creativity is to actively help Punchkickers surface their ideas and run them through our internal advice channel. Getting feedback and support for big ideas or sweeping change can seem intimidating to some, but it definitely doesn’t have to be.
