OpenMRS Quality Assurance Lead/TPM

Currently, limited quality assurance on the technical side of the software release is available to the OpenMRS community; little support is available to conduct structured and repeatable in-depth end to end testing of products. In addition, there is no support to conduct structured user acceptance testing that would help ensure that a release that meets the requirements from the implementation community.

The OpenMRS community aims to increase the quality of our products by ensuring products meet specified functional requirements. This will be accomplished by a team dedicated to developing a more robust QA process that includes fully documented test scripts for end to end testing and a supporting automated test framework to conduct these tests.

OpenMRS, Inc is seeking a Quality Assurance Lead to join our community to strengthen our quality assurance tools and processes. This position is part-time for approximately 12 months.
