Job description, responsibilities and duties

Do you love building software that thrills your customers? Do you obsess over the quality of your software? Do you insist on the highest standards for the software your team develops? Are you an advocate of measurable quality? Can you dive deep and still maintain the big picture of your solution’s components and the customer experience? Well if this is you, then come join an energetic team of engineers building future of PDI software solutions.

As a Test Automation Engineer (a.k.a. Software Engineer In Test) you will be part of an Agile team and involved in all aspects of our projects’ lifecycle from inception through release working closely with the team’s product owner, architects and engineers. Your mandate on the team will be to: (a) maximize the quality, measurability and supportability of the production features being developed, (b) maximize the testability of the software by finding and closing gaps in test coverage (c) minimize the team’s overall internal defect escapes by shifting the balance of how we manage quality from end-of-cycle defect detection & containment (bug-finding & fix cycles) to up-front defect prevention (automation backed coverage of all our application features).
You will not be writing production code. You will however be writing a lot of code in the form of tools, emulators, mocks, fakes, stubs, unit, component and integration tests. You will also be working closely with the Engineering DevOps teams helping enhance our integration with our continuous integration (CI) systems, our virtual labs and helping build out fully automated reporting of all the various project quality metrics with a vision of achieving “push-button” reporting of a project’s software quality and trending (code coverage, static analysis, test surface coverage).

Primary Responsibilities
• Setting up test environments as required including client and web applications, services and databases.
• Preparing Automation Test Plans for Service Level Tests, Integration Tests and UI tests as needed
• Be part of an Agile team, participate in all Agile ceremonies & activities and be accountable for the sprint deliverable
• Participate in Release/Iteration planning, smoke, feature and regression test planning
• Design & build automation smoke, feature & regression tests
• Review code with your peers for testability, supportability and look for full unit test coverage
• Write feature use cases in BDD to drive the creation of automated and/or manual test cases
• Build mocks, emulators, fakes, stubs and test case libraries driving towards 100% acceptance test coverage of stories
