The Challenge:
When a user tries new software, they expect it to be intuitive and run smoothly. Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful software development – and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, an experienced automation test engineer who knows how to thoroughly test software and work with developers to make sure our team releases the best software possible.  As an automation test engineer on our team, you’ll use your experience to work with testers, developers, engineers, etc. to evaluate software developed for the Department of Veterans Affairs. You’ll build a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using automated and manual processes, you’ll generate data and execute the test cases to see how the software performs, then document the results and communicate defects to the development team so they can start improving the tool. You’ll automate continuous functional, security and performance testing as part of an established DevOps Pipeline. This is an opportunity to supercharge your skills by writing the code to test the code using tools like Selenium. You’ll also broaden your experience in working with a large scale system while sharing your testing experience with your team. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.

You Have:

  • 3+ years of recent experience with Java or C#, and Selenium.
  • 3+ years of recent experience programming automated scripts using Java or C#.

  • 3+ years of experience with Agile methodologies and sprint-based testing cycles
  • Knowledge of DevOps and automation frameworks, including Jenkins

  • Bachelor’s degree

Nice If You Have:
  • Knowledge of scripting languages, including PowerShell, Bash

  • Ability to work effectively independently and on diverse teams
