Automated tests scripts

Theory of testing software products and applications, as well as in the principles of quality control.

An AQA employee should understand how software development takes place, what testing procedures exist, how everything is done, production documentation systems etc.

Bug-tracking systems

Those are special software products represented by a database with shared access to it. The tester logs all the found bugs and inconsistencies into it, prioritizes them, describes how exactly the interface test scenarios occurs, how to reproduce it. This information is transferred to the developers who are engaged in software quality assurance. The most popular Bug-tracking systems are Remine or Jira.

SQL (databases)

Our experts have to work with them on a regular basis, especially in the field of automated test frameworks. That is why knowledge of key SQL-queries is a must, because they are used almost everywhere.
