About The Role

We're looking for someone who is passionate about building high-quality software and driving the productivity of an entire organization.

About The Team

The Test Infrastructure team believes high-quality tests are the secret sauce that powers an organization's technology growth.

High quality and pervasive tests make ordinarily terrifying changes mundane and ensure that developers can spend most of their time on what they do best.
