Job Description

Vitamin T has partnered with a client looking for an Accessibility Analyst. The Accessibility Analyst will work with clients to test and validate user interfaces against accessibility requirements and consult on the effective technical implementation of digital accessibility requirements in client systems. The ideal candidate will have experience working with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, and will possess strong verbal and written communication skills. 

Responsibilities:

  • Testing – The Accessibility Analyst will test client’s systems against specific manual and assistive technology tools. The Accessibility Analyst will enter test results into a management platform that integrates the business and technical aspects of complying with regulations, such as Section 508, the ADA, and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. 
  • Remediation – The Accessibility Analyst will be required to provide realistic technical guidance to clients that can be integrated into current or new user interfaces. 
  • Test Set Definition – The Accessibility Analyst will work with the client to determine the boundaries of the testing environment by identifying a representative test set of the user interface components found in the client’s system. 
  • Reporting – The Accessibility Analyst will deliver testing results to the client and will participate in conference calls and follow-up discussions in order to create a road map to improve the accessibility and usability of the client’s IT system 

Qualifications:

  • Technical Experience - If HTML, JavaScript, and CSS make you want to get out of the bed in the morning, this is probably a good job for you. We are looking for someone with an understanding of web development technologies and how they impact the user experience. Experience developing user interfaces and PDF documents is a plus. 
  • Communicative - You should be able to clearly and effectively communicate with clients in both written and verbal fashion. Written communication should show a high attention to detail. Verbal communication should be formal and indicate the ability to communicate complex topics concisely. Our consulting positions are on the front-line with our customers and it is imperative that you inspire confidence when speaking with customers. 
  • Testing Focus - A large portion of what we do involves testing interfaces and validating that they conform to technical requirements. A desire to perform this validation and experience testing web-based interfaces for compliance with design specifications is critical. 
  • Organized and Disciplined - Level Access has a culture of disciplined execution over a long period of time. We seek to hire and advance people that have this focus and can execute activities on their own, over a long period of time without a large amount of management oversight. A candidate that will succeed in this environment should have a desire to grow in the system over several years and seek to build towards big goals.
