● Collaborate daily with software developers, product owners, and program managers to define requirements and ensure testability

● Diagnose, debug, and perform root cause analysis for issues in production or test environments, report defects, advocate for their resolution and provide transparency into the value of your work
● Partner with multiple teams to arrive at End to End test scenarios and help execute them to ensure product release readiness.


● B.S. degree in Computer Science (or equivalent degree or work experience).
● 3+ years of relevant software engineering experience.
● Proficient programming with Java, Python, C#, Kotlin, Scala, or similar
● Experience with backend test automation frameworks (E.g. REST Assured, Karate, pytest, etc.)
● Proficient with version control software (E.g. GitHub) and issue/project tracking software (E.g. Jira)
● Proficient with software development/debugging tools (E.g. Postman, curl, Chrome dev tools)
● Highly experienced in defining/executing/maintaining test cases and experience with building out test plans for backend services
● Good reporting, analytical and problem-solving skills, as well as excellent verbal and written communication skills.
● Experience with test suite/case/run management tools (E.g. qTest, TestRail, etc.)
● Proven experience demonstrating analytical skills, reporting, leadership, customer focus, and collaboration


● Some experience with Jenkins or similar build tools
● Experience developing advanced mocking mechanisms (E.g. rule-based proxies and dummy-services)
