You love software, and you love to write software - but more than that, you love to delight customers with software that works properly
and does so repeatably
. You are passionate about engineering a test approach - and the tests themselves - such that contracts are met (or unmet), and the business can make assertions about the risk of deploying. You love to push the limits of software to figure out where it breaks, and have good instincts backed by years of experience about how to prioritize tests based on business and technical risks. You grow the engineers around you and are always helping to increase ownership of software quality in the team around you. You are a SDET as an engineering specialization rather than as place you've ended up.
You’ve designed, and written lots of software shipped products and contributed to frameworks, platforms, tools and modules. Having worked with and led several test approaches, designs and scaling models you understand the challenges involved with building and testing big, distributed systems used by thousands of people every day - and relish them. You love to learn new things and to grow.
Who are you? You’re the new Senior Software Development Engineer in Test joining us at RDS. We work hard, have fun and make history.
