RESPONSIBILITIES:Kforce has a client in search of an Automation Engineer in Renton, Washington (WA).
As the acquisition of our client has now been completed, there is a large effort to integrate the two organizations and with that, there are many, many different projects that need testing. What is needed now is an Automation Test Engineer to join the Enterprise Testing team to support this effort. This team supports testing efforts in the infrastructure team, business and clinical applications team, web and digital services team. Historically, the testing has been done manually and there is a new initiative to automate the testing process to streamline the massive testing effort for all the integration work needed to bring our client, onto the national system.
There is a small automation team already in place and many projects underway already. Kforce already has 4 Contract Automation Test Engineers on this team. There is a full time QA Project Manager leading the effort to work with the many business units to determine the needs, document the test automation requirements and then work with the Automation team to create the automation scripts.
These Contract Automation Engineers will work with the QA Project Manager and take the requirements and build the automation, creating demos in many cases to share with the business and get their buy in before deploying the automation scripts. This is a true head down automation coding role with 90% of the time doing automation development.
This role will be expected to work on site in Renton 5 days per week. The work will continue with 12+ months of work, but most of the contracts start with 3-6-month contract and then extend with performance.
- 5+ years of experience in test automation using C# coding, Selenium, TFS, and Visual Studio tools (you need to consider yourself to be an -expert-, no training is provided here)
- Demonstrated experience working well independently as well as on a dynamic team; someone who is a fast learner and adapts quickly to changing project needs
- Experience in a Scrum/Agile environment
- Ability to create demos and present them to the business for their acceptance (so good communication and presentation skills)
