Job Description

**This is NOT an ENTRY LEVEL position NOR is it a position that supports Corp-to-Corp or 1099 candidates.  This is a W2 ONLY position. **

This role REQUIRES a seasoned SDET professional that can come in and hit the ground running.  A candidate that has a Java/Opensource background, experience developing automated tests, experience testing cloud hosted service, and experience with C# is the candidate best suited for this position.  If this is you, then you may be the candidate we are looking for!

Our client, a Fortune 500 company, is seeking a Senior SDET Analyst to work for seven (7) months in Seattle, WA from 8am to 5pm.  The selected candidate will supplement the existing UCP QA Partner Team workload and cover open full-time positions that are not yet filled.  This is the Unified Commerce Platform Team that does all the QA for the rewards program, mobile order and pay, etc.   The candidate will be learning ScalaTest, as the current test automation is written in it.  Understanding of ScalaTest is hard to find.  C# experience is good, however, someone who comes from a Java/Opensource background usually picks it up better.  Responsibilities in this role include:

  • Analyze upcoming platform feature and service integrations for needed test coverage
  • Creating test plans and test cases needed to ensure the quality of these features
  • Developing automated tests needed to support new cases
  • Ensuring that automated tests are integrated and execute reliably in our CI/CD environments
  • Analyzing daily test results for failures and filing appropriate defects
  • Drive defects your tests identified are properly prioritized and driven to resolution

  • Ability and strong desire to learn new languages, frameworks, tools, and platforms quickly
  • Ability to:
  • communicate clearly and concisely, both verbally and in written forms
  • understand and analyze complex problems and break them into small solvable pieces
  • 2 or more years of experience developing automated tests in an OOP or Functional language
  • 4 or more years of experience developing robust test automation (4+ years)
  • 5 or more years of experience in a software QA role
