It can take years to gain the skills of a good developer, how would you like to do it in 10 weeks, and then be deployed as one of our consultants to hone those skills?

What is an Software Developer Engineer in Test (SDET)?

Our clients are always hungry for SDETs as they're known as being capable of more than the average developer.

You will become a highly proficient consultant; we believe in engineering first which means you will be able to design and write code with the additional benefits of being able to build automation frameworks and processes from scratch using Java.

As an Engineer in Test you play a vital role working within a cross-functional team, participating in the development of software with a primary focus being on test environments and fixing problems before they are released into production.

You'll be able to set up full frameworks to perform thousands of tests in a heartbeat on multiple application platforms such as mobile, desktop and web. This feeds into every level of test whether it's unit level, functional, performance and regression.

Automation is also a major component of agile teams who work diligently to deliver value in short time frames, the execution of scripts and their application in the DevOps pipeline can mean delivery of functional code in unprecedented timeframes.
