We are looking for people who innovate and challenge the status quo.  People that are doers, have fun, and love what it means to be a part of technology.  Do you want to bridge gaps and automate everything?  You have come to the right place.


We are seeking a talented Test Automation Engineer who is passionate about automation, quality code coverage, and ensuring the highest value for the business.   As part of our team, you will work together with delivery professionals to build a robust test automation architecture and framework.  You will also be responsible for translating the business needs into testing requirements, playing an instrumental role in increasing the ongoing quality and stability of the team’s work product.  And how about the opportunity to do all that with a healthy work-life balance and a casual dress code?


What you will do:

  • Help define our path in test automation

  • Build testing frameworks to support our testing needs

  • Think outside the box to cover happy and unhappy path scenarios in developing test suites and exploratory test cases

  • Collaborate with build & release engineers to include automated tests in deployment pipelines

  • Work with developers to troubleshoot and resolve issues

  • Define testing and specification documentation standards


So here’s what we’re looking for.  First and foremost, we believe that what distinguishes a great team member from a merely adequate one is dedication to results, an ability to learn and adapt quickly, and professional integrity and humility -- not specific technical skills.  But, of course, you’ll need those too.


Ideally, you would have a 4-year degree and 3 plus years of experience where you’ve demonstrated the following:

  • Ability to solve a broad range of problems using a wide array of technologies

  • Self-motivation and eagerness to learn

  • Ability to balance multiple concurrent tasks and projects, and adapt to varying priorities

  • Professional and open-minded attitude

  • Experience writing automated tests and automated test frameworks

  • Experience working in agile development environments – Scrum and Kanban preferred

  • Experience working in issue tracking tools such as Jira

  • Experience working within CI/CD technologies such as Jenkins and Azure DevOps

  • Experience building tests in all agile testing quadrants

  • Experience working in relational databases such as MS SQL



  • Company sponsored group medical and dental insurance

  • Company provided life insurance

  • Company-matched 401(k) Plan

  • An all employee incentive pay program

  • Great work schedule - 4 1/2 day work week year round. Monday – Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and until 1:00 p.m. on Friday

  • Paid vacation and sick leave

  • Company supported training and development

  • Beautiful west side building including a full service Cafeteria, walking trail and Fitness Center.

  • Excellent starting pay

Location: West Des Moines, IA
