Local Candidates Only.Candidates will have to work on my company's w2.

This is not for a new product release - client has a legacy product from 20 years ago that has been through many iterations of testing and release, so they have a robust in-house testing procedure already in place. This legacy product has two "flavors" consolidated into one platform - one called IVD (FDA regulated, used in medical/diagnostic settings, hospitals, labs, etc) and the other called RUO (purely for Scientific research, not for use on actual patients, no FDA approval). When client develops this product, they test both flavors in parallel, the only differences are in the packaging stage. This legacy product is a pure desktop application, and it is still in a good space and highly useful for the client - they test and release new versions every year or so. Hospitals and doctors cannot spend the time to validate the product, so annually the client performs this. The product will reach regression stage in 2-3 weeks, and once they do the final regression, this version is going to be released. Candidate will install the application, open the application, and then execute all of the manual testing. Must be able to read and interpret C# code (all test procedures are written in C#).Duties:Candidate will perform and complete pure Manual/Blackbox testing of complex software systems that support their medical instruments - will perform all functional, acceptance, regression, and performance tests (all of these tests are written in black box files) using Agile methodology. - will perform all functional, acceptance, regression, and performance tests (all of these tests are written in black box files) using Agile methodology.
