QA Analyst Intern at Work & Co
Work & Co (work.co) defines and launches the world's most successful digital products and services. With offices in the United States, Brazil and Europe, we've become the go-to partner for IKEA, Lyft, Google, Apple, Epic Games, Mailchimp, Aesop, Etsy, ALDO and many other globally respected companies. As Fast Company noted, our engineering and design teams are “routinely entrusted with creating digital product for companies which rarely approach outside firms.” No time sheets, just fully-dedicated teams. Forrester Research calls our approach “a model to follow.”
QA Analysts at Work & Co are responsible for the testing of complete, interactive web and mobile applications. The QA Analyst reviews product specifications and develops effective test strategies, plans, architectures and chooses the tools to ensure product goals are met. This person will also help product prioritize fixes and estimate bug impacts. He or she will help establish team best practices and methods for refining existing approaches.
As a QA Analyst Intern, you will be paired with a mentor working on real client projects to perform tests and track defects. You will sit in on client meetings and work directly with our Designers, Developers and Product Managers to ensure our products are meeting all requirements. In addition to your day to day work, you will attend a number of workshops with other interns to learn about the digital product space and the contributions of other disciplines at Work & Co. This is a great opportunity to work on engagements alongside company partners as well as the top designers and engineers in the industry.
The internship will run from June 3rd to August 23rd.
