  • You identify and prioritize test conditions addressing product risks and features to be tested.
  • You attend and contribute to team ceremonies and meetings (daily scrum meetings, planning meetings, demos, and retrospective meetings). 
  • You actively look at ways to improve your team's quality and testing landscape and encourage re-use and knowledge sharing.
