The automation engineer at Verizon Wireless will work within a service development and maintenance engineering team responsible for writing scripts to test mobile voice and video services. He/she will be responsible for building and maintaining a library of automated tests to execute against the Verizon Wireless network, based on test plans provided by senior engineers. We are driving towards a zero-touch test environment.

Future work includes automating network trace validation, interface-level testing, and performance testing.

The engineer will also research technical problems during automated testing, analyze test results and assess severity of issues, provide test summary and reports, facilitate troubleshooting, and work closely with other teams to resolve issues and provide general tool support. The individual will also be responsible for recommending technical enhancements to automation platforms based on work history and experience gained in developing the library of scripts. In addition, the candidate will also be responsible for maintaining the scripts that the team builds, accounting for platform, device, and feature changes over time. The ideal candidate will be a self-driven individual who completes assigned projects accurately and on time.
