What are the main processes and tools a new QA Automation engineer needs to be aware of in order to start performing adequately at Crossover?
There are some key components to deliver high-quality testing services at Crossover, such as the Jira and TestRail processes and tools we use like Github, Jasmine, and Protractor tools. You will get to know every important topic to be a great QA Automation engineer at Crossover during our 4 weeks Bootcamp program.
Can you share some of the common QA testing frameworks you use at Crossover?
We know how essential are the testing frameworks for a successful automated testing process - as they help lower maintenance cost, maximize test coverage and improve overall test efficiency. We have developed frameworks that will be available for you such as for Cucumber, Specflow, Protractor, and CodedUI.
What can you comment about code review process at Crossover?
Code review is a mandatory activity for all automation work. We have clear guidelines and code review rules that each team member needs to comply. As an example on code specific, we have defined how to identify and avoid anti-patterns by indicating the maximum number of lines, fields, and methods are allowed.
How practical is this mandatory 4 weeks training for QA Automation engineer? Are we going to experience real day-to-day issues?
Our campers will be trained with real-life assignments. Just to give you an idea about the QA Automation program, you will start using JIRA and TestRail for particular projects and Jenkins Access to build jobs. You should also be reviewing code and taking it until the merger. Additionally, you will be getting a backlog of work and writing scripts.
How do you drive a team of QA engineers, located in different cities and time-zones, to be productive and deliver quality testing services?
One of our differentiators is that we know how to bring talented people together, from different cultures and time-zones. We have developed an online productivity tool that helps remote workers manage their time more efficiently and receive a fair working environment.
