Job Description

You own the expense of product validation. You are also aware of the added expense of product validation in production and are able to minimize the amount of validation occurring post-product delivery. Your main focus is to ensure the product’s capabilities is clearly written but also that what is written matches the behavior of the product before it reaches the customer. In other words you want the product to do what the company expects it to do and you are a leader in that effort. When the comparison fails, you immediately voice the risk through clear and effective communication. Secondarily you are also comfortable with a software engineer in test automating this comparison. Within this scope you assume the role of a consultant for the software engineer in test. Although you work closely with all engineers, you are closest to the software engineer in test. Together you all are solving the test oracle problem. Solving this problem through a myriad of test strategies such as independent implementation, functional comparison, and value limit checking must be a passion while assuming this role. You are someone who manages startup life well and works well with others within your team and with internal/external teams within and outside of SVT.
