JOB SUMMARY
AmTote International is seeking a Software Development Engineer in Test, React (SDET) to implement/manage (or build) a test automation framework for a React-based software project.  The incumbent will analyze application requirements, implement or develop a test automation strategy, and build automated acceptance tests as part of an AGILE SAFe software engineering team. The SDET will spend most of their time “building tests”, not “testing builds manually” although some manual testing may be required due to the mobile components of the project; this is predominately an engineering position, not a manual testing position (think 80% automation development/20% manual testing).

Beyond development the SDET will serve as the quality advocate for the team, vetting requirements during design, breaking other engineers’ designs and code via tests, and defining quality-related metrics by which to measure the code/feature base. SDET's also assist with stylistic and design decisions, and collaborate with application engineers, product managers, stakeholders, designers, etc. as part of a communal & cross-functional development team.  The SDET reports to the Director of Quality Assurance.

If you have an attention to detail and are driven to ensure an excellent gaming experience, we want to hear from you. Throughout AmTote we have satisfied employees, offer a positive work environment, encourage training & development and we have a strong team spirit giving employees a sense of unity.

PRINCIPAL JOB RESPONSIBILITIES
•    Serve as the quality expert and enforce quality assurance/control processes and procedures as an embedded test engineer on a cross-functional product team. 
•    Create detailed, comprehensive and well-structured test plans for front-end features (predominately React websites, with some mobile web/progressive web application support as well).
•    Vet designs for usability and compliance pre-development; wear the end user hat and ask intelligent questions/write solid test cases.
•    Estimate, prioritize, plan, and coordinate testing activities, including assisting the team with development estimates and release cadence.
•    Design, develop and execute automated test suites (acceptance, performance, regression, load, compliance, security, and other suites) for the web and mobile-web front-ends.
•    Identify, record, document and track bugs from inception through fix release.
•    Liaise with internal teams (e.g. designers, product managers, other product engineering teams) to identify new system requirements in addition to vetting user stories during design/prototyping.
•    Debug production issues, and reproduce said issues in staging/pre-prod environments.
•    Track quality assurance metrics (like feature test coverage, open defect counts, production error rates, etc.).
•    Stay up-to-date with new testing tools and test strategies.

PREREQUISITE SKILLS & EXPERIENCE
•    The ability to write code!  All candidates will go through a simple application coding exercise and code review session with the team.
•    Experience developing and debugging React projects (preferably on a React/Redux/Firestore stack), or strong JavaScript debugging experience.
•    Experience developing or implementing automated testing frameworks for React projects.
•    Experience testing API’s in a headless fashion.
•    An unrelenting attention to detail and best in class communication skills.
•    A “test to break” mentality; usability, security, stability and compatibility are guiding principles for the front end team.
•    A degree of patience; web and mobile-web testing can be tricky!
•    Proven work experience in software quality assurance, specifically automated test development for mobile and web end points.
•    Strong knowledge of software QA methodologies, tools and processes.
•    Experience in writing clear, concise and comprehensive test plans and test cases.
•    Experience with white/clear/black box testing.
•    Experience working in an AGILE development process.

•    Experience developing and debugging mobile applications (ADB, Xcode, PWA’s, and other mobile tooling/formats).
•    Experience with mobile device testing.
•    Experience with Appium, Robotium, XCUITest, Google Firebase Test Lab, or other mobile testing frameworks/paradigms. 
•    Experience testing web application front ends/websites; web design experience a large plus.
•    Experience with automation paradigms for web applications (Selenium, Cucumber, Typescript, WATIR, or similar).
•    Experience with compliance testing on front ends (508, WCAG 2.0, or similar).
•    Experience with UI/UX testing/vetting; a background in design is a plus.
•    Experience with distributed source control (Git, Mercurial, or similar).
