A Test Manager role is often critical to an organisation as the quality of that business’s software is being evaluated and debugged. This can enhance efficiencies as well as augment output. A career as a Test Manager or Quality Assurance Manager entails coordinating and managing large teams of testers or Test Analysts who identify software defects and resolve them through automation testing. Employers seeking candidates to fill their Auckland and Wellington Test Manager jobs are asking for supervisory and people management skills as well as technical know-how.
Nature of Work
The responsibilities of a Test Manager role can encompass:
- Developing and implementing a test strategy as well as test plans that outline objectives and timelines.
- Directing a testing team to administer test cases with the right tools and processes.
- Managing any of the bugs and defects uncovered in the software.
- Liaising with stakeholders and users regularly in order to report on test cases and progress.
- Documenting and keeping track of solutions.
Typically, a career as a Test Manager requires a tertiary qualification in an IT-related discipline such as computer science, business computing, software engineering or information systems to name a few. Many start their careers as Help-Desk Analysts and move into a Testing Analyst or a more Technical Testing opportunity.
Obtaining relevant industry based certifications will be highly regarded by New Zealand employers. For example, the International Software Testing Qualifications Board (ISTQB) Certified Tester is a well renown course and seen in good light when applying for one of the Auckland and Wellington Test Manager jobs by employers.
Some Testing Managers advance to senior roles based on the employer’s scale and industry. Some have the opportunity to advance as Quality Assurance Managers or even move laterally with further education into Business Analyst roles.
