  • Develop maintainable automated tests using tools like WebDriver, FitNesse, Locust, Jmeter, BrowserStack, EndTest, Appium. 
  • Build custom applications for testing as necessary in languages like Java or Python.
  • Develop automation that minimizes fragility through architectural patterns that isolate coupling to System Under Test (SUT), minimize maintenance costs as the SUT API changes.

  • Develop system level regression and smoke tests that focus on the system as a whole.
  • Train teams on the use and extension of the tooling to scale the use of the test infrastructure across Engineering.
  • Provide assistance/guidance on use of technologies to solve testing problems.
  • Assert user requirements, not code or design level validation typical of unit or integration testing.
  • There are three primary roles you'll move between:  i) Developing, maintaining, extending test frameworks and infrastructure, ii) working with specific teams to build test in support of their missions, iii) Developing tests focused on the entire product, independent of specific teams.
