Job level:Junior/Mid

Job description

We have a role available in the Information Technology Department for an experienced IT Quality Test Analyst who enjoys working in an energetic and stimulating working environment. The purpose of the role is to create and execute test cases, document, track and validate reported issues through to resolution. The IT Quality Test Analyst will also be responsible for ensuring a quality product is delivered to the end user.


Key Performance Areas:
    Test Planning
    • Identifying the objectives of testing and the specification of test activities in order to meet the project objectives.
    • Integrating and coordinating the testing activities into the software life cycle activities.
    • Defining the amount, level of detail and templates for the test documentation.
    • Setting the level of detail for test procedures in order to provide enough information to support reproducible test preparation and execution.
    • Determine the activities required to successfully meet the objectives of the project.
    • Making decisions about what to test, what roles will perform the test activities, how the test activities should be done, and how the test results will be evaluated.
    • Scheduling test case analysis and design.
    • Scheduling test execution.
    • Monitor testing activities throughout the project.
    Test Analysis and Design
    • Reviewing the test basis (such as requirements, design, and interface specifications).
    • Evaluating testability of the test basis and test objects.
    • Identifying and prioritising test conditions based on analysis of test items, the specification, behaviour and structure of the software.
    • Designing and prioritizing high level test cases.
    • Identifying necessary test data to support the test conditions and test cases.
    • Designing the test environment set-up and identifying any required infrastructure and tools.
    • Creating bi-directional traceability between test basis and test cases.
    Test Implementation and Execution
    • Finalising, implementing and prioritising test cases (including the identification of test data).
    • Developing and prioritising test procedures, creating test.
    • Creating test suites from the test procedures for efficient test execution.
    • Verifying that the test environment has been set up correctly.
    • Executing test procedures according to the planned sequence (functional testing).
    • Logging the outcome of test execution and recording the test results.
    • Comparing actual results with expected results.
    • Reporting discrepancies as defects and analysing them in order to establish their cause (e.g. a defect in the code, in specified test data, in the test document, or a mistake in the way the test was executed).
    • Repeating test activities as a result of action taken for each discrepancy, for example, re-execution of a test that previously failed in order to confirm a fix (confirmation testing).
    • Execution of a corrected test and/or execution of tests in order to ensure that defects have not been introduced in unchanged areas of the software or that defect fixing did not uncover other defects (regression testing). 
    Evaluating Exit Criteria
    • Assessing the test execution against the defined objectives for each level of testing to determine if enough testing has been done.
    • Checking if defects raised have been resolved, confirmation tested, or are outstanding.
    Test Closure
    • Checking which planned deliverables have been delivered (post implementation testing).
    • Documenting the acceptance of the system.
    • Finalising and archiving test results for later reuse.
    • Analysing lessons learned to determine changes needed for future releases and projects.
    • Using the information gathered to improve test maturity.
    • Three-year tertiary qualification in a relevant financial/IT related field of study.
