QATs also have experience with gray box, and white box testing techniques; they are able to understand software internals, debug problems using log files and reproduce errant product behavior to assist developers or other testers and identify, track, and accurately report defects found. QATs produce good reproducible defect reports to verify fixed bugs are truly fixed. Develop and execute automated tests and test plans. This role requires relocation to an ADIQ regional hub.
