What would you expect from a Systems Test Analyst Role
I have recently been approached by and agent representing a financial services organisation. This is not uncommon as I tend to keep my CV online as I like to keep one eye on the market.
The role sounded quite interesting (Test Analyst role, local, decent money) but the actual job description and what is expected seem a little optimistic for an analyst position - it sounded more in line with Lead or Management Position.
As I understand it this role involves systems analysis as well as taking complete control of a test process. Working at component level I (potentially) would be responsible for the entire test process from end to end; including chairing walk-throughs, and defect resolution via developer contact.
It doesn't seem like a problem. However, this is a little high end from what I am used to. I am happy discussing this role but feel that it should re-numerate me on a par with a test lead at my current company.
What are your thoughts on this? What would you expect from your test analysts? Am I right in thinking this level of duty in an analyst role is fairly uncommon?
Any comment appreciated..
