What You'll do.

  • Participate in the development of software with a primary focus being on test environments and fixing problems before they are released into production
  • Design and write code with the additional benefits of being able to build automation frameworks and processes from scratch
  • Develop full frameworks to perform thousands of tests in a heartbeat on multiple application platforms such as mobile, desktop and web
  • Automate test cases as well as writing reusable scripts/tools that help the team to reduce repetitive efforts
