West Monroe isn’t a start-up consulting firm, but we act like one. From day one, our people have the opportunity to make a definitive personal impact for their clients and their careers. What does this mean? It means we seek out the best of the best, and then we challenge them to make us better. Think you’re up to the challenge? West Monroe Partners is seeking a Quality Assurance Consultant to assist in the day-to-day SDLC activities for our clients.  Candidates will need to demonstrate core understanding and prior experience in Business Analysis and Quality Assurance within an Agile environment.   Core Responsibilities:
  • Lead the manual and automated QA responsibilities on custom software development projects to ensure the requirements were implemented properly
  • Create and execute functional QA tests on those same software development projects
  • Help build out WMP’s QA function including processes and tools for the Software Engineering practice
  • Apply appropriate development methodologies (e.g. Agile) and best practices (e.g.: requirements clarification, resolution of ambiguity, testing approaches and completeness) to ensure successful and timely completion
  • Collaborate with other team members involved in the requirements gathering, testing, roll-out and operations phases to ensure seamless transitions between WMP and our clients
  • Lead the creation of project outputs such as high-level solution vision, solution backlog, test cases, and deployment approaches
  • Help lead user adoption and change management activities during inception, UAT and post implementation phases
  • 3+ years of relevant consulting and / or QA experience working on medium-large scale technology solution delivery engagements
  • Programming experience in creating automated test scripts from scratch (writing code, not just executing what others have written)
  • Hands-on experience with one or more automation platforms (Selenium, Protractor, Junit/NUnit, etc.)
  • Experience in the design and development of automated testing frameworks, including database, API services and UI testing
  • Experience with load/performance testing technologies is a plus
  • Language agnostic from a testing perspective (i.e. C#/.NET, Java, Javascript, etc.)
  • Knowledge of one or more build management and CI/CD platforms
  • Knowledge of one or more code and branch management platforms
  • Strong business and technical requirements gathering experience
  • Hands on manual QA experience in a wide variety of environments
  • Strong writing skills
  • Desire to work in a fast-paced environment and manage and prioritize multiple tasks simultaneously
  • Bachelor's degree with specialization in Computer Science, MIS, IT or other computer related disciplines
