The Opportunity 

Do you love building software that thrills your customers? Do you obsess over the quality of your software? Do you insist on the highest standards for the software your team develops?  Are you an advocate of measurable quality?  Can you dive deep and still maintain the big picture of your solution’s components and the customer experience? Well if this is you, then come join an energetic team of engineers building future of PDI software solutions.

As a Test Automation Engineer (a.k.a.

You will not be writing production code.  You will however be writing a lot of code in the form of tools, emulators, mocks, fakes, stubs, unit, component and integration tests. You will also be working closely with the Engineering DevOps teams helping enhance our integration with our continuous integration (CI) systems, our virtual labs and helping build out fully automated reporting of all the various project quality metrics with a vision of achieving “push-button” reporting of a project’s software quality and trending (code coverage, static analysis, test surface coverage).
