Software Test Engineer
Bachelor's Degree or equivalent experience.
Experience testing Windows/UNIX enterprise software.
As part of an agile process, must be willing to write code (scripting, web services, etc.) to automate as much of the testing process as possible. Experience automating tests is a plus.
Must be able to exercise good judgment about what constitutes a meaningful defect. This means not chasing cosmetic, low impact issues that are often easy to find and easy to write defects about, but rather digging into the issues related to overall robustness and reliability of the product.
Must be thorough and detail-oriented. Have a desire to test all combinations and aspects of a new feature (including boundary condition testing) and be passionate about being able to report exactly what was tested on a given environment.
Must demonstrate ownership over areas of responsibility.
Must be competent in communicating (oral and written). Must be able to communicate clearly and concisely.
Must be willing to learn independently and be willing to figure out how to solve problems and work with a technology without formal training. If an area of the product you are responsible for takes you to a technology that you are unfamiliar with, you must be willing to dive in and thoroughly learn that technology.
Never satisfied with the status quo; always looking for a better, more efficient way to test.
Must desire to work collaboratively but be willing to work independently as well.
Must be trustworthy. Must have integrity and a strong work ethic.
Working knowledge of the following:
Windows and UNIX operating systems
Relational databases (in particular SQL Server and Oracle)
Web application servers
