  • Design monitoring, alerting capabilities and dashboards to ensure that our high quality bar is always achieved for every single release
  • Work closely with fellow engineers and QA to build comprehensive test plan
  • Maintain environments used in Ascenda for testing purposes
  • Improve our internal QA processes and methodologies
  • Coach and mentor junior SDETs
