Software Analyst, 11:00am to 6:00pm (Part-Time)
As a Software Analyst, you will test prerelease software looking for programming errors, user interface irregularities and other defects just like an end user does when they download an app from Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store. Software Analysts are the last line of defense against faulty apps hitting the marketplace and frequently the first step in entering the growing industry of software development.
This is a part-time as needed position and the number of hours worked each week will vary depending on the needs of our clients. Employees in these positions will work no more than 30 hours each week. In addition, there is no guarantee on a minimum number of hours as Digital Dream Forge has no guarantees from our clients as to the total number of hours needed each day.
On average, the typical employee in this position may be requested to work between 10 and 30 hours each week from Monday thru Friday between the hours of 11:00am and 6:00pm Central time. Hours for these positions are scheduled each week day in the morning for that day. You would therefore be called in the morning if needed to come in for that particular day.
If this type of unpredictable schedule does not work for you, please do not apply for this position.
THIS IS AN ENTRY LEVEL POSITION
NO PROGRAMMING OR SPECIALIZED TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE IS REQUIRED
AN INTEREST IN TECHNOLOGY IS REQUIRED
We will provide training for the skills necessary to perform the job.
Who We Are:
Digital Dream Forge (DDF) is a casual and easy-going, independent software services company in Cookeville, Tennessee. We are in search of bright, reliable and motivated Software Analysts who can help us provide testing for mobile apps, mobile peripherals, web sites, point of sale devices and anything that runs software. We work hard, but we have fun, too!
ON THE JOB TRAINING IS PROVIDED
Our clients need to have accurate details in order to fix defects quickly. We will provide training on how to document and report these defects properly. Attention to detail is a must for this position as well as good communication skills, both written and oral.
As a Software Analyst, you will test prerelease applications, and look for “defects”. A defect is a crash, error, typo, user interface irregularity, audio problem or something in the app that just seems wrong. Here are some examples:
- a graphic is not displaying or overlapping other graphics
- a word is spelled incorrectly
- the app crashes when a button is pressed, or a necessary button is missing
- the wrong sound effect plays, or no sound plays when it should play
- the app runs on an iPhone 8, but not an iPhone X
- onscreen text overlaps other text
- the app does something other than what was intended
Once you find a defect, you must determine the exact steps to reproduce it. Then you must carefully type up the details of the defect in a centralized database. Other tasks may be assigned by the test lead on the project.
- Computer and mobile device experience preferred but not required
- Excellent oral and written communication skills
- Great attention to detail
- The ability to learn new software tools
