As an ideal candidate, you will apply critical thinking, user empathy, adaptability, and an attention to detail such that you will be able to identify and offer solutions to potential quality issues before they become problems. You will be comfortable embedded in and managing time against multiple parallel cross-functional delivery teams, and directly owning the success of QA across your projects.
