job summary:

An E-Learning company is looking for Associate Test Developers to join their team. This person can sit fully remote for this on-going contract (6 months initially then a 6-month extension IF performing as needed for the group).

This person will need to have availability to semi-regularly work for 2-3 hours on a night or a weekend with at least 24 hours' notice always provided.

They will have to complete a proofreading test and an instructional exercise before interviewing. This is not a "creative" role, but it is a problem-solving role that requires critical thinking.

  • Responsible for documenting assembly tasks in detail, building tests, performing testing in a production environment, and coordinating to ensure that all issues are resolved before final product release.

  • Review/edit products to ensure consistency with company standards.

  • Understand the various steps within the test development process, why they are performed, and when they should be modified. Use this knowledge to contribute to process modification and/or the resolution of customer support inquiries.

  • Coordinate with IT teams to create, test, and release new functionality, prevent incidents, and troubleshoot issues.

  • Prepare pretest items and perform pretest rotations as needed to maintain bank health.
