Welcome to the QE Academy!
Our innovative academy program puts you on the road to a career in Quality Engineering.
Learn Quality Engineering from the experts
The QE Academy is an in-depth, five week, fully paid learning experience designed to jumpstart your career in software quality engineering. You’ll learn from Slalom Build quality engineers with years of industry experience testing and automating complex modern software. They’ll guide you through the custom-designed curriculum and prepare you for a career in quality engineering.
What you’ll learn
It’s not a bootcamp or an internship. You’ll be paid to learn. Through a combination of lectures, activities, group discussion, and hands-on labs, this intensive, comprehensive curriculum consists of 20 custom-created modules designed to teach all aspects of QE fundamentals. You’ll cover topics such as:
Test strategy and test case design
TDD and BDD
Agile development methodology and Scrum
Testing data and analytics pipelines
The role of the QE in modern teams
Native mobile app testing
Unit, API, and UI automation
And much more!
Who should apply
“By the time you’re through the academy and onto your first project, you’ve had time to settle in; you’ve made connections with people in your office and beyond, you’ve got your basic computer set up and tools running.”
Laura McGee, QE Academy grad
