QA Engineer

Location: Freeport, Maine
Date Posted: 29 Jul, 2022

Our client has an immediate need for one or two QA Engineers to support their E-Commerce teams in key strategic initiatives to enhance their website. Leadership, QA engineering skills, and a minimum of 3-5 years of experience are required.  This role will be in support of high risk, high visibility projects. This is a 6-month contract to start, with the possibility of an extension based on performance and business need.

Two separate 50-minute on-line screening tests will be given to you by the client to take at your convenience. One test is QA overall skills (50 minutes), and the other is Technical skills (50 minutes). Each test must be taken in one sitting – you cannot stop and restart.

This is a remote only position.  You will need reliable high-speed internet and the client will provide a VDI. Developer Virtual Desktop Infrastructure allows for entitled users to access a virtual compute asset to complete tasks and processes relative to their role and responsibilities. You need to have a laptop/desktop to log into the assigned VDI.  You will install a VMware Horizon 7 compatible Client for Windows on your personal PC.  This PC must have a currently supported operating system, which is regularly patched, and has updated commercial anti-malware software.   To efficiently do the work, an additional monitor and a headset are required.
