Automated Tester, Senior

The Challenge:

How do we know if the critical systems we develop for our clients will stand up to real world use? How can we be sure the tools we design can integrate seamlessly into existing environments? When you build some of the most important systems in the world, you can’t leave anything to chance. That’s why we need you – an automated test engineer who can learn how to test, interpret, and improve - to make sure our systems will solve real problems in the real world.

As an automated test engineer on our team, you’ll help software engineers analyze the creation of processes and experiments to test the functionality and performance of mission critical systems. Throughout development, you’ll ensure the highest quality using tools like Selenium, JMeter, and Postman. You’ll write test cases from unit test level to functional, based on your understanding of requirements and how they relate to actual needs. You know the need for “baked-in” security, so you’ll run security scans using tools like SonarQube and Nessus and interpret the results to be fed back in as improvements to the design.
