Software Development Engineer Test (Streaming Delivery Team)
To position MassMutual as a market leader for the next stage of growth, it is critical that we build top engineering capacity in a rapidly changing digital world. Romania has a significant pool of highly trained engineering professionals and so we are very excited to build operations in both Bucharest and Cluj.Cerinte
Core understanding of:
Payload type (JSON)
Methods for REST and what do they mean (PUT, POST, GET, ETC)
Familiarity with REST tools such as Postman or SOAPUI
REST Authentication knowledge (What is OAuth, Basic Auth)
SQL skills that will allow them to do Data mining against Databases to build test plans
Event driven architecture (Kafka Platform preferred)
Previous experience in developing test scripts, possibly as part of behavior-driven, test-driven, or acceptance test-driven development
Experience in Java (preferred)
Configuration / Execution of Automated Regression testing
Agile Team/ Safe Agile
Experience with JIRA.
Learner - shouldn’t be shy to learn any new technology or even code if needed
Solid communication skills – be able to partner directly with developers and BA in the team
Agile mindset – be able to think how we can transition the team to shift left. A mindset of quality owned by the team
Critical Thinking – ability to dive into a problem, dig in to help SDETs and then pull up as needed.
Executing integration tests in sync with the development process for all releases/feature enhancements and production support issues for the Integrations Team
Designing new tests to expand overall automated test coverage as new events are built.
Work through how to find edge cases and prepare data for manual and automated testing
Determine overall business requirements and which test cases should be automated.
Create test cases/test scenarios for variations on request and response to explore various data element combinations for Services Testing.
Find defects and work directly with the developer to create a fix and validate it
Analyze and review Test Plans, Test Scenarios, Test Cases, Business Requirements and Functional Specifications.
Participate with Tech Lead & BA in initial estimate of work coming in the pipeline
Look for seams that will enable faster, targeted testing, and not be afraid to code tests at the unit and service layers. Again, having knowledge of multiple tools enables SDETs to automate outside of the box of UI automation.
Implement and record QA metrics.
Implement a customized automation framework which caters as a common platform for streaming event test automation, ensuring efficient architecture, performance, and ensure quality software.
Execute on automation plan, and implementation of tests within the automation framework and its improvements
Building an automated test infrastructure that performs integration tests
Learning & Strategy
Continuous improvement mindset to introduce new QA tools and processes to bring further efficiency, speed and quality into the work at hand.
Staying abreast of industry direction with respect to ensuring our platform and strategy takes advantage of appropriate new technology and processes.
This is an excellent opportunity for a motivated software engineer with a passion to learn new technologies & to become an expert in event driven architecture leveraging Kafka. It will provide you visibility to how multiple systems operate around MassMutual. As we grow and scale our organization to deliver more services, we have to manage technical debt that we have, and improve uptime of our current streaming applications. This role will be in a squad that will drive strategic initiatives to build these services. The team will also eventually be responsible for Production Support and members will be required to be on call during user peak time. The squad will be the driving force of ensuring quality is maintained and maintain the required uptime and SLA.
The individual will be responsible for all aspects of test engineering and validation of APIs, Streaming Events and data integration services developed, with opportunities to stretch more broadly. This will include working closely with software engineers to create solid core designs and enable testability of the products. You will also work under the guidance of Portfolio QA Automation Lead to understand the roadmap of new features and ensure automation occurs for new features being built.
