Freelance

Candidates should be comfortable working through structured, modular, and well-documented processes, but also have enough flexibility to work in a mid-size and busy company working in teams on rapid-development projects.

TBG is always looking for solid, reliable subcontractors to do freelance work. Freelancers would work on Web projects on an as needed, ongoing basis. Freelancers must be fully able to work remotely. We’re seeking freelance resources with previous Quality Assurance experience. Minimum of two years, with at least four years ideally. Candidates must also have a minimum of 10 hours of availability per week. Talented, junior-level resources are also encouraged to apply. We will consider resources that are not in the Baltimore area, located throughout the U.S., if the candidate strongly matches our needs and has a high level of availability, communication, and responsiveness.

In addition to testing large websites and applications for clients, the QA Department oversees Sitecore training services for our clients and resources such as content migrators/integrators. The QA department is also in charge of creating training documentation materials as client deliverables. The QA role is a split role that combines the various QA activities on projects as well as Sitecore basics and template specific training efforts for our clients.

This role also works closely with TBG's Director of Quality Assurance on internal projects that promote the maintenance, standardization, adoption, and documentation of QA best practices. This includes activities such as researching current advances in testing methodology and new technologies.

  • Reliability, availability, and ability to meet all assigned and agreed to deadlines.

  • Experience with cross browser and devices compatibility testing for design fidelity.

  • Previous experience using issue tracking and documentation software preferred (Jira, Confluence).

  • Experience testing Web content management systems (i.e., Sitecore, Umbraco, Episerver, Sitefinity, etc.) preferred.

Core Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Develop and execute test plans against requirements and specifications.

  • Test websites on multiple devices and browsers.

  • Test websites from a functional standpoint, including manual testing, automated testing using Selenium, and Performance testing.
