Senior QA

Columbus OH



Brooksource has partnered with one of Columbus’s premier energy providers to source a Senior Quality Analyst. Our client leverages Agile and Lean techniques, such as acceptance test-driven development, continuous integration, and story-based iterative development. As a Senior QA, you will be involved in all phases of software development, from requirements definition to production releases. You will be embedded in a cross-function team of analysts, developers, product managers, and testing staff, collectively striving to quickly deliver high-quality, high-value software. This contrasts to most other environments where the culture encourages “throwing the code over the wall” for QA to test. Our client has constructed an environment that encourages individual initiative, leadership at all levels, and team-based continuous improvement void of hierarchy and bureaucracy.
