WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING

We have created a work environment that is perfect for the smartest manual QA testers in the world, one that they love. We see huge benefits in connecting the responsibility of test creation to test execution - it leads to higher work quality and better insights.

When creating test-cases, you’ll take end-to-end test scenarios and break them into discrete test-cases. As you’ll be working on a dozen different products from our portfolio every quarter, it means that you’ll never get bored. You’ll continuously be extending your learning by ramping-up on new products to the level where you can write razor-sharp test-cases that focus on the essence of the functionality that is being tested.

Our manual testers execute test plans created based on functional coverage matrix both for new products as well as part of our software regression cycles. We use JIRA for bug tracking and TestRail to document and execute the test-cases.

 
REMOTE CAMP PROGRAM

To apply for a role at Crossover, you will go through a series of online tests, usually during the online hiring event. If you pass these tests, you will be offered the opportunity to participate in our four-full-time week Remote Camp training program. This is elite training taught by our top instructors.

Here’s what our graduates have to say about Remote Camp,

"I am very pleased to say that because of Crossover's unorthodox and unique way of transferring the knowledge through (Paired sessions, coaching sessions with CSMs), I have never been more confident in my technical skills and abilities for my role."
-Mikael F

"The CTO Remote Camp was another thing that motivated me. I wanted to see how CTOs across the globe work and learn from them."
-Javed Z

"I've been with the company since Aug (been part of the second Remote Camp) and since then I've learned SQL, databases, servers, tapes, other content management systems etc- and that's only been in 3 months. Usually when I'm in a new company, I learned a lot about their platform, their tools etc during the length of my time with them but never at this speed!"
-Monnaliza T

It is offered as soon as you want to get started. You will be compensated for 40 hrs/ week at the hourly rate for the role you are applying to. Remote Camp training is an excellent opportunity to learn about our culture, expectations, tools, processes, and procedures. It's an intensive and demanding program, but every graduate is guaranteed a job at the end of it.
