The Quality Assurance Engineer will play an integral role in the growth, maintenance and support of our real-time trading applications. This role will require strong analytic, technical and communication skills, with light experience of some programming languages and/or scripting languages. Responsibilities will include the construction and execution of creative, thorough, probing tests for new and existing features to ensure completeness of implementation; review of new specifications for thoroughness of edge case specification and to capture a full understanding of the interaction of new features with existing features; log analysis for determining where and how a system has diverged from expectations; close interactions with the Development team to describe, reproduce, and verify fixes for bugs; close interaction with the automated test team to help transition tests from manual to automated execution; with the overall goal of improving the quality of delivery and reducing customer headaches by identifying bugs, performance bottlenecks, and complex configuration issues before new product versions are released.
