Do you have a genuine curiosity about every layer of an application? Do you care equally about the aesthetics and usability as you do about the logic and data structures underneath? Do you want a chance to work across the architecture of a product, building both front end and backend? 

Does it bother you when you see software applications behaving badly? Do you ever find yourself wondering, "Why does it ask me that?" or thinking, "Didn't I just enter that information?" Is "good enough" for others sometimes not good enough for you? If you pay close attention to the details, you can use that keen awareness to change things for the better!

You can do this through Automation Development and Testing (often called Quality Engineering). In this area, you’ll get to work with cutting edge cognitive computing technology, before it's available to the public. Not only that, but you’ll help to make sure that it's cool, fast, and ready for anything people might send its way.

Required Technical and Professional Expertise

  • Co-op or internship program enrollment is mandatory
  • Knowledge of application and web development in HTML and CSS
  • Some experience in Javascript, Ruby and Python
  • Knowledge of frameworks such as Node.js and Angular.js
  • Some knowledge in Java to implement server-side or
  • application logic and develop databases and RESTful interfaces
  • Some experience on verifying that the software behaves for the users who will someday need to use it to get things done

Preferred Tech and Prof Experience

  • Experience with RESTful services and APIs for data handling
  • Experience with version control systems
  • Basic Agile/Scrum methodology understanding
