  • Develop/enhance an in-house training curriculum to educate the other members of the Test Team in developing, executing, and analyzing automated test scripts
  • Use in-depth knowledge of test automation to address technical policies and procedures throughout the program
  • Demonstrate ways that real-time, automated test reporting and notification can tie into Agile development processes
  • Demonstrate understanding of testing at multiple levels (Unit, Integration, System, etc.), collaborating to build a comprehensive test strategy and implementation.

  • Candidate should have a University Degree (BA/BS) or equivalent experience and minimum 7 years of related work.

  • U.S. Citizen with active SECRET clearance
  • Experience with continuous integration tools and environments, and automated testing tools. Examples are Jenkins as well as automation frameworks like Playwright, Selenium, Jbehave, Junit4, Nunit
  • Experience implementing tests in C#, Java, or JavaScript
  • Familiarity with DevSecOps best practices
  • Ability to write test documentation
  • Experience with testing RESTful services
  • Ability and experience to interact with the Users, Customers, Business Analysts and Scrum Masters, and provide guidance on automation tools and testing methods to meet project specific needs
  • Familiarity with Agile software development methodology, processes, and techniques. Experience working on Agile teams in a similar role.
  • Ability to effectively prioritize and execute tasks in a high-pressure environment
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Excellent organizational skills, and have the ability to express yourself in technical discussions
  • Excellent teamwork and collaborative skills, with the ability to lead and manage the effort of others when necessary

  • Experience developing test automation as part of a team developing secure applications for the government
  • Familiarity with microservice architecture, asynchronous messaging, containerization, and related technology including Docker and Kubernetes
  • Experience participating in a high performing, highly engaged and motivated team, with a mix of local and remote locations
  • Understanding of all elements of the software development life cycle
  • Highly responsible, team-oriented individual with a very strong work ethic; self-starter
