Description & Qualifications


As a Senior SDET, you’ll embed on a development team of between 5-10 people, where you can have fun finding bugs and writing test automation to ensure the long-term quality of our products. You will also get to work directly with other Software Engineers, Business Analysts, and even our Product Users in a highly collaborative environment. You will have the opportunity to grow as a software engineer and help instill in others a passion for quality enterprise development.

•In your team’s daily stand-up meeting, you brag about that big bug you found and walk a developer through it to get it fixed 
•Before a story is ready to be tested, you create and document test cases for other engineers to follow with manual or automated tests
•Exercise your Java knowledge by writing some automation using the latest novel test case frameworks.
•A peer developer may come to you wanting you to review their unit tests, and you can suggest additional test cases that they might need to cover
•Exploratory testing: this is when you get to let loose on the application–go crazy and try to break it
•Work with our seasoned test architects to develop and advance your career. We can train you to get better with our in-house training in the white box and black box testing 
•Finally, you can demo your story to the Business Analysts (BA) and get it closed because you thought of every little detail


• 5+ years of experience in test automation of both frontend and backend applications (Ex. : Selenium, TestNG)
• Strong Java programming skills
• Bachelor's Degree or Master's Degree in computer science or a related discipline
• Experience in cloud service delivery or SaaS module manipulating web services (RestAPI)
• Experience with CI/CD using GIT and Jenkins pipelines
• Proven experience in defining testing strategy for complex distributed application backend and web frontend
• Demonstrated technical leadership skills, including self-determination, coaching, and mentoring to drive change in tools or practices
