Position: QA lead

6 months contract

Blue Ash, OH

Skills: Selenium, Java, Appium, Android


  • The manager would like to see QA Lead candidates
  • Will need to be local to Cincinnati to support testing at the Blue Ash Tech Center.
  • This is a new vendor product called "IMDSD" we are bringing in with integrations to several back end Kroger systems.
  • 1 - Regarding onsite requirement - Times on site could vary according to test phase. There may be some periods where a couple of weeks of on site may be required. Aside from that, I'd expect once or twice a week. The functionality can be tested through an emulator which can be done remote, but we also need validation on the TC52 device itself which requires a person to be in the BTC lab.

    2 - Appium vs Selenium focused candidates? - This is an android app that needs testing so I believe Appium is what is used.

    3 - Android or iOS Testing role? - Android - this APK will be deployed to our Android based TC52s
