You will create new tools and find new ways to test our software. You will work within the feature delivery teams to discuss architecture and implementation so that the software is robust and reliable. You will see your features working every day as our customers use WarnerMedia's streaming products to watch their favorite content.

The Daily
• Efficiently coordinate with Feature Release teams to understand and assist in implementing the team's automated testing needs

• Follow the established policies and procedures of the organization when authoring and implementing automated tests
• Provide comprehensive status reports to QA management and the Feature Delivery Teams with which you are working
• Leverage communication, documentation, preparation and training to educate other disciplines with regard to established and newly developed QA processes
• Support program management teams as needed according to the schedule of releases
• Be curious and actively research new tools and methods that could prove beneficial in the implementation of test automation
• Establish organization of automated tests based on your technical system experience and growing knowledge
• Establish practices that improve and continue to establish studio-wide trust in the automated tests
• Ensure stability of the software release enhancements across all HBO digital products including HBO GO, HBO NOW, MAX GO and HBO MAX

• Ability to author tests to be used in established automation integration tools to multiple platforms (Mobile, Game Consoles, Connected TV Devices, Etc.)
• Having the ability to use and offer helpful input on common software development tools such as Jenkins, GitHub, JIRA, etc. would benefit the entire team.
• Experience with client/server product releases/deployments of SaaS applications and the product development life cycles required to release the full set of high quality product in a timely manner
• Experience with device specific development; we support a large number of platforms, and knowing how to interface with those devices gives our team the ability to independently test our work before pushing code to source control
