  • Creating, maintaining, and executing automated and manual test cases that implement our standards

  • Detecting, isolating, reproducing, documenting, and prioritizing defects

  • Reporting those defects to the team & verifying fixes

  • Scheduling & executing routine regression testing prior to releases

  • Testing new features and enhancements across various devices and scenarios
