About the Role

The Automation Engineers on our Build team support testing and test automation on a variety of applications. They investigate and address triage and time sensitive tasks within specific program focus areas, conduct feature-level testing for sprint work, and ensure smooth functioning of our core offering and its tech support systems. In addition, as our software design and development partners complete their work on new components of our platform, Automation Engineers partner with them to ensure launch readiness and conduct the actual launch. From there, we take over responsibility for support, maintenance and enhancement of tests for that component, in collaboration with our Implementation team. This role is remote.

You’ll need strong written and verbal communication skills to effectively collaborate with technical and, sometimes, non-technical teams
  • Information sharing: You’ll need to be open and honest about challenges, as well as the actions required to address unexpected developments
