  • Plan and execute testing, perform analysis, document results in formal assessment reports, and discuss and defend the reports in a peer review board.
  • Advise design teams of the issues discovered, work with them to develop work-arounds or recommend changes to eliminate the issues entirely.  
  • Depending on the project, you will work alone or as part of a team. 
  • Be prepared to learn and analyze new systems, then plan and execute various tests on them, document test results, then write formal test reports.  You will then discuss and defend the test reports in a peer review board.
