• You will be integrated within the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) from Test Planning to Test Plan and Test Case creation to manually execute (and potentially automate) said test cases for features and build internal/external releases.
• In an Agile-Scrum methodology environment, you will attend and participate in agile meetings keeping all involved in projects including stakeholders with up-to-date information on test progression.

• Have utilized bug tracking software like Jira and Test Case management programs like Test Rail (or similar).
• Great oral, written and listening skills and time management skills.
• We are looking for a person that not only can work alone but strives as a team player.

Nice to Have
