  • Strong familiarity with testing lifecycles and data maintenance: setup/teardown; creating/enacting testing seams to force desired behavior

  • Experienced in defining/executing/maintaining test cases and experience with building out test plans for backend services 

  • Hands-on experience with software development/debugging tools (E.g. Postman, curl, Chrome dev tools)
