Design, develop, and extend test architecture and frameworks that facilitate unattended validation of delivered products, services, and interfaces.
Articulate and advocate for best-of-class design, development, and testing practices that enable automated validation at all levels of the product's architecture.
Enable and collaborate with the QA staff to increase automated test coverage through enabling code frameworks and tools, training, and paired programming.
Implement automated test cases that increase test coverage.
Contribute to performance and scalability testing efforts
Identify and evangelize best practices on making code more testable
Provide responsive support to escalated customer issues

Experience with API testing tools such as SOAPUI/ReadyAPI!, Postman, or vREST
Experience with unit testing frameworks and tools such as xUnit, SQLUnit, RhinoMock, or Typemock

Ability to work as part of a team with minimal supervision in a results-oriented, fast-paced dynamic environment
