  • Regularly meet with your team to follow up on test plans, provide feedback and coaching, discuss progress, tackle setbacks, coordinate bug correction, flag risks, set benchmarks, etc.
  • Adapt to technical and production constraints, updating the quality control calendar when and as often as needed.
  • Put together and evaluate post-mortems to continuously improve our efforts.
  • Carry out the annual evaluations of your development testers. 
  • Stay up to date on testing best practices, strategies, and techniques to keep up with the industry + develop your skills and refresh your knowledge.
  • Participate in recruitment to build your development testing team & foster their long-term growth.

What you bring

  • At least 2 years of leadership experience in quality control or quality assurance, or related experience (project management an asset)
