    Due to a high-level project, we have an opportunity for a Principal Quality Assurance Engineer to join us in supporting the automation phase of our Student Load, Revenue, Resourcing and Reporting Project (SLRRP) - one of the top strategic projects of the University's 2023 agenda. Your duties will include:

  • Understand data management and recommend best practices

    We acknowledge that not meeting all the criteria can be a bit daunting so you may be tempted to rethink applying. DON'T! We love people who can learn with the right foundation skills so if you aren't sure whether this is the right role for you, we encourage you to still apply!

    To be successfully considered for this role, you will have experience in a senior level role where you have interpreted QA needs and produced comprehensive Quality management strategies. Demonstrated knowledge in data management principles is key to this role. The ability to lead and motivate a high performing team, proactively recommend data quality practices, and work in a cross functional environment is important.
