Position Overview

Efficient SaaS application testing entails not just functional qualification assurance but also other integration, workflow based and trap event tests, including and not limited to security, accessibility, framework/component load and stress, chaos and performance tests.

The purpose is to assess dependability, versatility, accessibility and performance of Enlighted SaaS services on routine and non-routine use cases in production-like environments. From A/B exploration test to complex upgrade/update and unapproved hijack to the information inside a SaaS application, the successful candidate for this role will lead the investigation of the nuts and bolts associated with Enlighted products. The ideal candidate will also ensure that Enlighted SaaS applications perform proficiently independent of the traffic load. Gone are the days when software organizations employ a User Acceptance Test stage in their development to production journey. It is the charter of the Product Integration Test team to turn performance and other “additional” testing into practical and domineering parts of their ordinary routines, so to discover execution defects before our clients find it.
