    For you, as software tester it’s mean that you have to use a lot of different skills for all kinds of projects. As creation checklists for a small projects and test cases with diverse test design techniques for a huge platforms. As well as skills in testing different kinds of requirements as short user stories and detailed specification.

    That’s why these kinds of projects need you =) the qa specialist who can conduct different types of performance testing and knows a lot about performance and also knows what’s need to do to improve it. Be sure, skill of conducting performance testing will well decorates your resume.

  • Huge databases.Big data

    As in case with high load, retail projects usually go with big and complicated databases which contain a enormous amounts of information about clients, goods, orders etc.

    Here, to be a good qa engineer you need to have skills of work with different databases (relational and not relational). Which using queries as on SQL as other “query languages”.

  • Different technologies.Different technologies

    In the world of retail software, you, as tester may face with many new and not really new technologies. It can be some specific API or not popular framework or programming language. It also gives you a chance to create automated tests on some handy frameworks. Often retail software contain so called “ mobile part” which is just mobile application with simplified functional. So if you have a skills in a testing of mobile applications don’t forget mention it in your resume =)
