Job Description

QC Functional Reviewer/Proofreader


This role is focussed on the QC review of English products during development and prior to release to clients (proofreading/editing English clinical content and manual functional testing and verification of configuration of the products).


The product offering includes online video-based training modules, study portals, patient portals, websites, and other online products. QC will ensure that any bugs noticed are logged in the bug tracker and all issues are addressed prior to QC approval/release to client.


The QC Functional Reviewer/Proofreader will carry out the following project functions:

  • Verify that all English products are configured as per client project specification prior to release
  • Perform manual functional reviews of products on both desktop and using in-browser mobile emulators prior to release to client and log any bugs clearly in the bug tracker so they can be understood and fixed by development teams
  • Conduct regression testing to ensure bugs logged in one version are fixed and closed in a subsequent version
  • Proofread English content as part of QC reviews and suggest grammatical or content-related edits in line with in-house content standards, either in Microsoft Word or in the Content Management System within our application
  • Complete QC checklists accurately for each review so that each review is documented and attributable to an individual tester, version of the product, and clearly shows the checks that passed/failed and any bugs that were logged against the version reviewed
  • Provide feedback to project manager/project team on QC review progress, or any issues causing delay
  • Provide oversight of file version control on a project, ensuring this is tightly maintained
