examine and validate large-scale software development and deployments. As an STE Manager, your
partnership with software engineering managers to create and code tests concurrently with product
development is essential. You build tools that help developers be more productive, write better code and
test it themselves. Troubleshooting is an understatement; it's more like trouble forecasting. The STE

  • 3+ years of experience in creating and executing tests using robust api testing frameworks
  • 5+ years of performance testing experience supporting high-scale back-end systems
  • Good working knowledge on NoSQL Databases (MongoDB, etc)
  • 3+ years of experience leading projects with minimal supervision.
  • Functional Testing on Native Apps, OTT (Over-the-top), web platforms, a BIG plus.
