  • Drive and own stable production releases/patches, through clear communication with multiple scrum teams and stakeholders.

Requirements:

  • Able to work independently, and be flexible with changing priorities and simultaneous projects; strong ability to multitask.
  • Experience in certifying, and driving consistent releases, as well as delivering within short release cycles.
  • Strong analytical skills, detailed, and process oriented; ability to clearly define test cases, and document corner cases and dependencies others would not think of.
  • A consumer-product sensibility; ability to test from a user perspective.
  • Understanding of Agile software development life cycle methodologies.
  • Ability to deeply understand the process, and dependencies of working within a cross-functional team.
  • Experience with exception handlers, monitoring tools, and testing tools such as NewRelic, Kibana, Airbrake, BrowserStack or similar applications.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills with strong interpersonal skills; ability to communicate and work well with every department in the company.
