Interested in moving to the top of the list?

Our ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate familiarity with software development concepts, as well as working knowledge of writing test plans. Here are two of our interview questions for the QA position. By completing them in advance, on your own time and without the presence of an interview panel, you have the opportunity to show that our mutual expectations are in alignment, and bump yourself to the top of the list.

1. For an array (list) of random integers that may be both positive and negative, write a procedure that will find a set of sequences of length ‘n’ with the maximum sum. So if the list was {4, 1, 3, 2} and n=2, the output should be {4, 1}, {3, 2}.

2. Choose a favourite software application or web process, and write a test plan to ensure that the product is ready for public consumption. For example, you might test the sign-up procedure for a web-based e-mail service.
