As a Software Test Engineer, you will play a vital role in ensuring the quality and excellence of our products. You’ll be embedded on a team consisting between 8-30 people where you can strut your stuff finding bugs and giving developers valuable input from a testing perspective.

A Day in the Life:

  • In your daily standup meeting, you brag about a big bug you found at the end of the day yesterday, and walk a developer through it to get fixed

  • Create and document test cases for those bleeding edge cases

  • Exercise your C# knowledge by writing some automation using the latest in novel test case frameworks
    • Frameworks are developed in-house and supported by Selenium, coded UI, and sikuli

  • You attend a design meeting and discuss how to make an application testable

  • Exploratory testing: this is when you get to let loose and go crazy on the application –try to break it! Bring out your inner Sid! (Hope you don’t mind the Toy Story reference!)

  • Work with our test architects to develop and advance in your career

  • Finally, you demo your story to the Business Analyst, and it gets closed because you thought of every little thing!


  • Multiple years’ experience in a Software Test Engineer role in an agile environment

  • Write and test code in an object oriented language (C#, Java, Ruby, C++, VB.Net)

  • Experience building test automation frameworks

  • Selenium knowledge is preferred

  • Experience with a Continuous Integration system (ex. TeamCity, or one of the Butlers…)

  • Intermediate SQL code

  • Knowledge of testing techniques/methodologies and how to apply them (white box, equivalence class partitioning, pairwise, state transition, boundary value, decision table)
