QA Intern

| Chicago

PowerReviews works with more than 1,000 global brands and retailers to deliver cloud-based software that collects and displays ratings and reviews on websites.

As an intern in the PowerReviews technology department, you will be a key asset over the summer to carry out two important projects for the Quality Assurance team.

Project 1: you will be responsible for building from scratch a real time tests dashboard. This web-app will be used internally to display to the whole Technology department the status of hundreds of tests running dozens of times a day. You will use your knowledge of front-end engineering (Ruby on Rails, Javascript) and frameworks to build a beautiful and efficient application.

You will receive guidance from the test team as to what should be displayed in the dashboard and from the front-end engineering team for technical assistance, but will have complete freedom in the design and development of the app.

To be successful in this project, you should be comfortable with front-end engineering languages, and have good knowledge of User Experience concepts.

Project 2: you will be responsible for creating a solution that will allow us to validate our software directly in our client’s own environments. We are a ‘Software as a Service’ (SaaS) company, thousands of clients use the same version of our software on their website, but each client has the liberty to customize it with CSS or javascript. This customization might lead to inconsistencies, incompatibilities or bugs. You will build an automated testing framework that will be able to interact with hundreds of different contexts and report on the status of our software.

A successful candidate for this project should be comfortable in Java and have good knowledge of Object Oriented Programming concepts. This internship will offer opportunities to build a mastery of Java and Selenium WebDriver and learn new languages, tools and technologies.

  • Design and develop a web app showing test result in real time
  • Connect with Jenkins REST API to get test status in JSON format
  • Your work will be displayed H24 on a 70-inch monitor in the Technology department
  • Design and build a production validation framework with Java
  • Enhance automation of our testing processes

Requirements & Preferred Skills

  • Must be authorized to work in the U.S.
  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • Experience building web applications
  • Experience with a front end framework
  • Understanding of network communication and REST APIs
