Quality Assurance Engineer
It’s an exciting time to join APM Terminals – we’re starting to execute on our 5-year strategy in the Modernization Program in order to modernize and upgrade of our current operations, improve safety and business results by rolling out market leading solutions for our operational equipment and processes. One part of the strategy is to deploy currently available mature products/solutions into our operating terminals globally. We are building the Mature Product Deployment Team which will concentrate on deploying 2 products: Terminal Gate Automation and Crane Operator Support (such as crane OCR, Truck Alignment…).
Working together with this highly skilled deployment team, it is your mission to ensure everything goes according to plan and without local business disruption by aligning global, cross-functional product definitions with terminal specific conditions, and by coaching and guiding the team in effectively overcoming any challenges whilst implementing the product(s) in the live terminal operations.
Base location is indicated as The Hague; however, the Mature Product Deployment team will be working on projects globally, moving from terminal to terminal to deploy these solutions, and the contractual base location can be flexible and discussed during the selection process.
APM Terminals offers tremendous growth, career and leadership opportunities for those with the ambition, drive and dedication to become one of the best. If you see yourself being part of a team that helps the global economy grow through our worldwide network of customers and terminals, then we want to hear from you!
As Quality Assurance expert, you are accountable for ensuring effective and efficient quality management planning and execution. You act as the main quality assurance expert within the deployment team to effectively implement the given product(s) in the live terminal operations according to plan and without local business disruption. You support the team and Deployment Lead(s) in resolving any related challenges on a day-to-day basis.
You drive the end-to-end quality assurance and related testing process: from emulation to installation and commissioning, and from integration and live equipment testing to go-live support (incl. the onsite release management). You ensure all testing related activities are documented appropriately in support of the overall QA process, including the use of defined tools/platforms and you maintain a consistent quality assurance approach across all relevant sites, reporting any related challenges to the Deployment Lead.
Reporting to the Deployment Lead(s), you provide ongoing feedback and regular reports related to quality assurance and testing status. You collaborate with the broader deployment team to integrate QA with technical and operational deliverables, ensuring the quality assurance work fulfils all site-specific needs as defined in consultation with relevant teams. Working closely with the deployment team, you continuously improve the ongoing work and quality assurance approach.
You drive collaboration between APMT and suppliers to ensure test cases are being derived from all user cases in deployment scope and executed upon within a streamlined, predefined process (incl. any adjustments that are needed over time). You collect validate and analyze data on quality assurance applying a set of testing and statistical tools. Based on your analysis, you define quality assurance action plans and you ensure that the QA documentation is updated and available to all stakeholders.
Other accountabilities entail:
Work closely with PE PMO to ensure PMO collects best practices on quality assurance processes
Liaise with central CES and other global product team members to align on QA related standards and ensure they are followed accordingly
Be a part of defining relevant milestones and aligning on the target outcomes related to quality assurance
Contribute to local quality management adoption by supporting capability building and knowledge transfer to terminal staff
