Contribute to quality control, assurance and testing in support of exclusively free, open source software for open science. The Center for Open Science (COS) is a funded non-profit startup seeking highly-motivated individuals to join the team to expand our current product QA and testing efforts. The team is mission-driven, passionate about science, users of modern web and API practices, and has expertise across the web development stack. The focal point for this position is the flagship platform, Open Science Framework.
The COS team is growing rapidly and pursues highly coordinated projects while encouraging project “ownership” and a distributed decision-making process. Success with this model requires team alignment on goals, clear milestones, highly effective communication, and rapid feedback. The ideal candidate will have experience developing acceptance criteria culminating in rigorous product QC, QA, and testing.
These goals will be accomplished by working closely with developers, technical architects, technical managers, and the product team. The selected candidate will work in conjunction with the programmatic testing done by the development team and ensures that only high-quality software is released. This will require exceptional attention to detail and alignment of product features, requirements, user stories, development practices, and overall business strategies.
