Job Description:

Sr. Software Engineer, Test Harness SpecialistMiami, United States of AmericaWHAT YOU WILL BE DOINGThis person is a software engineer on an application development team who specializes in creating, maintaining, and automating regression test harnesses which validate a large and complex suite of batch-based business process and ETL jobs. There are scores of interrelated job cycles of interest some of which take input from third parties, some of which operate on user input, and some of which operate on a feedback loop of the output of a previous cycle. The jobs are automated in production through various schedulers or through application workflow. Some are time-triggered, and some are event-triggered. A person in this role will be able to use existing documentation and data models and above all will be able to read code (C#, T-SQL, PowerShell, Windows Shell, and job scripting) in order to reverse-engineer the jobs including data dependencies. Based off of that analysis, a person in this role would be able to engineer test harness scripts driven through a scripted language such as Python which would set up the necessary test data, run partial job cycles, and then compare the test results to expected values. Beyond partial job cycles, this engineer will be able to set up complete test cycles in non-production environments to mirror exact realistic production cycles.This person will work together with incumbent data engineers, batch operations analysts, application SMEs, and DBAs. This person may also need to work with technical resources at third-party partner organizations in order to gather specifications for data sent by or sent to said partner. Finally, they will closely partner with QA and UAT teams in order to tie together test cycles and to make sure that the test cases being run are in service towards the new features being built.Furthermore, this person will work together with business analysts in order to properly document the results of reverse-engineering expeditions in case such documentation is lacking.To be successful in this role, this engineer must be able to fluidly follow data across a tech stack of multiple different languages. In addition to traditional C# application development knowledge, experience with ETL and enterprise scheduling toolsets is a must-have. Experience analyzing data sets in order to create realistic test data is important. Experience with partner integration would be a big asset.This person will be expected to be organized and self-starting. S/he may receive ambiguous tasks or code to dig into and will be expected to own the task from start to finish.Required Skills
