Who you are…

Must haves…

* Experience creating workflows
* Experience developing scripts in either JMeter or SOASTA
* Scripting experience with Java or Python
* Experience with SQL
* Previous experience testing web applications

Traits for Success…

* Needs to be comfortable working in a collaborative environment
* Good communication skills
* Able to succeed in a fast-paced environment.
* Must be able to multi-task efficiently

* Minimum B.S. degree in computer science or a related field; or equivalent work experience and/or education in lieu of a degree
