Kforce SDET - Java in Seattle, Washington

Kforce has a client seeking a SDET - Java in Seattle, WA.Overview: They will be working on the messaging team, but back end testing, REST API, Test automation in Java and TESTNG. If they have good JUnit testing, then they can transition over easily to TESTNG but we would prefer the TESTNG. Mostly using Apache/Tomcat that is the most important. JBOSS is good or something similar. If they used BugZilla or some issue tracking tool that would work. Maven, GIT and Eclipse or similar source code control systems (at least 2 of them would be great), Itelli J is also good. They just have had to use real sophisticated tools for building stuff and source code control. AWS is primarily used by the messaging team; however, any cloud experience would be a plus. Long term- always look to convert. This funding is good until end of next year. If we have the head, we would explore the option, but not a guarantee.As a Senior Software Quality Engineer, you will be writing state-of-the-art test automation in Java to exercise complex and performant services.
