I am offered a position as a QA lead, which is a big-big step up for me.
I would appreciate some feedback, heads-up, suggestions, certify and considerations when tackling such a responsibility.
What is expected of the QA lead:
- Implement software testing process from scratch: how to test, what to test, what tools, what responsibility
- Evaluating the development process and suggesting points for improvement
- Creating ecosystem of unit, integration, system, load, penetration and regression test suites and mocks. Which is durable, low maintenance required and scaling up is simple
- Create a process where QA and Dev are closely coupled. Meaning that from test plan to requirements to test cases to actual test results and bug- all are traceable and seamless
Note: Yes, I am definitely under-qualified for the position, but the company is OK if I learn everything along the way, but first results are expected during the first quarter.
Note-Note: Yes, there are similar questions, but since I am responsible both for QA and Dev processes, I asked a separate question.
