WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING

We have a portfolio of more than a hundred cloud-based SaaS and on-prem products that are continuously being improved with new features and bug fixes. We operate within a matured DevOps process where new releases are made every seven days. Your responsibility, as a QA Manual tester, is to write and execute test cases by following well-defined test-scenarios. Your contribution will be to enhance the test suites of these evolving products to guarantee that our customers love each new release we make. We also continually add new products to our portfolio, so you will always be exposed to new domains. The test cases you write will be ready for automation by an automation engineer. 

 You will be working with the latest tools, such as Jira, TestRail, and TestLink, to maintain test suites and manage the test execution process. We also use proprietary tools to make the job of test case authoring and execution more streamlined. 

 You will mostly work independently and follow well-defined playbooks to accomplish your allocated tasks. You will have clear daily and weekly goals to achieve, while your manager will closely work with you to ensure your success and continuous career growth.

 
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.

and Answers

  • How would you describe a typical day of a QA Manual Tester?
