  • Collaborate with QA teams in other parts of the business to ensure common standards and processes for QA across the company.
  • Identify quality risks as they emerge from client feedback, industry trends, regulatory changes, technical dependencies and from team member suggestions.
  • Generate, monitor and constantly improve a set of success metrics for product QA.
  • Provide regular, effective and succinct status updates to stakeholders, specially the Engineering Director who will lean on this person to provide checkpoints without having to dive into the QA details.
