Who we are:

With the growth of smartphones, tablets and new operating systems requiring constant updates daily, Quality products are more critical than ever before. Our Quality Engineering & Assurance (QEA) Practice partners with you to bolster development initiatives, providing reliable support across a range of hardware and software, testing infrastructure, and testing products that ensure automated test coverage and drive product quality.

Position Overview

By joining as a Quality Engineer, you will become part of our US-based QE&A practice, ranked a 'Leader' in Gartner, Forrester and IDC evaluations for application testing services. The practice provides a full range of Quality Engineering & Assurance services to our U.S. clients across multiple industry sectors, including Automation Test Development, Agile QE, DevOps Engineering, Performance Testing, Manual Testing, Test Design, and Test Consulting.

Business Focus

* Know Your Customer: Understand the client's business processes and how the software being tested impacts the client's business
* Become a quality evangelist - Advocate right bugs to fix and reject the ones that would put client's end customers at risk
* Develop the ability to map a client's business process to your testing methodology

Technology Focus

* Become a 'future focused' QA leader: develop a good understanding of rising trends in the QA industry (QE, DevOps, Agile QA & Digital) and apply these technologies to your client's QA environment
* Gain knowledge of the architecture of the client's system - code structure, underlying database and interactions with other software
* Find new and interesting ways of breaking the software using automated and manual tests
* Learn new tools/technologies to automate tests (such as Selenium, Tosca, Cucumber Java, and Python)

Quality Focus

* Work with Analysts, Dev, and PM Teams to identify what needs to be tested in existing or new features of the software product
* Understand the existing test assets and identify relevant test areas

Prior to starting your client engagement, you will attend New Hire Training, where you will learn about our history, vision and culture, our global delivery model, and our processes, tools and methodologies (including the Cognizant 2.0 global collaboration & project management tool). You will receive training on client relationship management skills as well as technical training on project management, software development and testing methodologies.


We are looking for self-motivated individuals with strong analytical, troubleshooting and problem solving skills with the passion and appetite to learn newer technologies. Within the QEA Practice, we provide a technical career path with the opportunity to be 'hands-on' and get involved in code and design.

* Bachelor's degree or equivalent. Our preferred majors are Computer Science, Information Technology, Computer Engineering or other related majors that provide foundational knowledge in software development and testing.
* Understanding fundamentals of Software Development Life Cycle and importance of Quality Management and Processes.
* Familiarity with programming languages or frameworks, such as Java, Python, .NET, C, C++, etc.
* Basic Understanding on Database Concepts - Relational DB or NO SQL
* Strong problem solving and analytical skills
* Strong interpersonal and communication skills
* Ability to work collaboratively with global project teams

Applicants must be willing to relocate to one of the major geographic areas where we have significant customer accounts and/or travel may be required.

Cognizant will not sponsor H-1B or other U.S. work authorization, or lawful permanent residence (otherwise known as a "Green Card") for these roles.
