Subject: Automation of QA
Duration: 6 months
Pollen Metrology is a deeptech company specialized in the creation of intelligent software (AI) for the production of high-performance materials. Pollen has developed a unique artificial intelligence technology to automatically analyze all types of images from scanning or transmission electron microscopes.
You will join a team of about twenty collaborators with different expertises (metrology, physics, computer science, image processing, deep learning, data fusion) to provide AI technology that allows our customers to optimize their advanced industrial processes.
You will be attached to the application team team and the QA leader. You will be based at our headquarters in Moirans (Centralp area near the train station at walking distance).
Description of the project
Pollen Metrology is developing the 3rd generation of the proprietary software Platypus Smart with a client-server architecture and an API interface. This new generation has new QA requirements which includes the implementation of the cutting edge technologies of testing.
In order to structure and develop its Quality department (QA) Pollen is looking for an intern in automation and/or Web Services testing. The desired skills for QA are attention to detail and rigor. These competences are oriented to find all discrepancies between product and customer requirements. The QA represents the final user, hence the product has to be compliant with the highest standards for customer use and production line.
The maturity of the software (Gen 3) and its architecture requires automated tests in order to ensure the quality of the key user functionalities. This internship will be oriented mostly on the conception, definition and maintenance of automated test repositories with a purpose of functional (user oriented and API ) and non-functional (robustness) testing.
The internship will be organized in two parts:
- build and maintain a test repository of functional tests, validating the most common behaviors of the application to test with different parameters and variables
- build from scratch a functional and non-functional repository dedicated to a specific customer, particularly on the interface between the application developed by Pollen and the customer infrastructure.
The contribution of this internship is to help improve the quality of the developed application, taking into account the exigence of the business sector particularities and requirements.
