  • Prior experience with quality assurance, test plan management, and the software development life cycle
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills and strong cross functional collaboration
  • Strong discipline applied to structured and organized workflows, processes, and individual efforts
  • Hands-on experience with Parsec or other remote desktop applications and streaming solutions

You might also have
