Intern: Quality Assurance Engineer

Washington, D.C.

About the Position

QA Engineers ensure that the features being developed work as expected and that the end user experience meets expectations.  Utilizing both manual and automated testing techniques, they verify that the analytic outputs are sound to ensure that APT's software suite can be depended on to guide fact-based business decisions worth millions of dollars. QA Engineers are responsible for keeping up with a rapidly moving engineering team and developing robust and efficient testing approaches to ensure a high quality product. They take full ownership of the quality of APT's software as they help brainstorm test plans, conduct exploratory testing, validate analytics, and work along-side software engineers to facilitate quick and robust feature development.

QA Engineers are a key part of our small, flexible teams. QA Engineers work in parallel with software engineers to ensure software quality by providing rapid feedback throughout the software lifecycle. For those QA Engineers interested, they have the opportunity to work alongside APT's Software Engineers In Test and develop front-end test automation using technologies such as Selenium and ensure the product is safe from future errors by building an excellent suite of regression tests.  Working side-by-side with the entire feature team, QA Engineers are a critical part of APT's development process.
