Qa is responsible for ensuring all aspects of quality at modern tribeIt’s a tall order for sure: learning how a site works, creating test plans covering obscure use cases, and then putting it all into practice when testing every aspect of site functionality…it’s a lot of ground to coverBut we’ve got an established workflow down that helps make sure we’re setting the team up with the tools they need to proceed and succeed.
Though every project is different, here’s the gist of our qa flow:
Kickoff meetingJust a kickoff — meet the pm; get your questions answered; set expectations; and schedule milestones.
Preparing docsGetting started with internal documentation early is hugely important to getting the project into your brain.
Review approved compsBefore you start qa or even get a walkthrough, you’ll review the comps to understand the project + prepare a list of questions to ask on the qa walkthrough.
Qa walkthroughOnce development is far enough along for qa to begin, you’ll do a walkthrough with the lead developer to get an overview of the functionality.
Prepare qa checklist + test planAfter seeing each component of the site in action, you’ll put together a first draft at a comprehensive qa checklist and a higher-level overview of what you’re planning to test, in what order, and when.
Heavy duty testingYou’ll put the site through its paces and give it a few rounds of full pass bug huntingBeyond just hitting buttons, you’ll be thinking from a higher level: are there usability concerns? does what we’re doing here actually make sense as the best way to solve the problem? etc.
Celebrating a successful launchWhat feels better than kicking back after a successful launch? if qa has done their job, the project will launch smoothly, the team will have a finished product to show off, and — most importantly — the client will be happyIt doesn’t get much better than that.
Our qa team also generally leads client training and prepares training documentation/videos when appropriate, so be prepared for some direct client communication.
Work from anywhere and join our distributed team working across the globeIf your timezone is outside of us business hours, but you work at least 3-4+ hours of overlap each day, let’s chatYou should be fluent in english and just need a computer and a strong wifi signal to support daily video chats with the tribe.
Our hourly rate for this gig starts at $25-$35/hr, depending on experienceThis is a freelance contract about 10 – 20 hours per week.
We believe that distributed working is a way of lifeWe understand what it means to work remotelyWe offer consistency in expectations, payment, and supportWe believe in learning from each other and fostering personal growthYou can expect to learn a lot while working with usAlso, if you work enough hours, we will invite you to go an adventure to attend our annual team trip.
