  • Drive adoption of CI (continuous integration) and CD (continuous deployment).
  • Be a critical participant in the defect management process.
  • Evangelize the importance of testing and reliability within Xandr.

You Have

  • 5-8+ years of experience in software development or automated software testing.
  • Proficiency in one or more programming languages, especially Java or Go.
  • Flexibility in working with new or unfamiliar programming languages and frameworks.
  • Build and maintain automated testing frameworks and experience with Selenium (or similar automation tools).
