Kforce has a client that is looking for a QA Engineer with test ETL and Data Warehouse experience in Minneapolis, MN. You will join a large QA team but will be embedded in the development team. Summary: The QA Engineer will be a member of a self-organizing agile testing team and will be responsible mainly for developing automated test scripts to be executed regularly during intra-sprint testing as well as performance testing as needed. This role will work closely with business, development and project management departments to ensure that the stories included in each sprint are thoroughly vetted and the product produced is fit for use. The QA Engineer will be heavily engaged in reviewing and clarifying the prioritized stories delivered by the Product Owner. Once fully understood and translated into test scenarios, the Quality Assurance Engineer will need to translate those into fully automated test scenarios which can be executed as needed after any code deployments. Any failures encountered will need to be raised as issues within the test management software provided (JIRA, ALM, or other) and managed in collaboration with development to ensure they are resolved in a way that satisfies user stories. This role will also be responsible for identifying the ideal strategy for test automation within the project they are assigned.
