    About TraceLink

    TraceLink is building the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud, the first cloud-based application platform for creating a truly collaborative, high-performance global business network. We help our global customers connect to each other, share crucial business information and collaborate on manufacturing and distributing billions of products worldwide. To do so, we need team members that are motivated, creative, questioning and driven to push conventional boundaries. We have strong financial backing; a great roster of well-known customers and a product that analysts say revolutionizes how people work. Ready for a challenge?


    The Opportunity:

    • Build tooling for automated testing of the TraceLink platform and applications. This tooling will need to programmatically interface with the TraceLink application using a variety of B2B messaging protocols as well as both REST-based and SOAP-based web services
    • Creating testing tools that can simulate real-world transaction volumes involving potentially millions of transactions per day
    • Provide architectural input into the test automation infrastructure, focused on generating load and analyzing the performance of the system. This includes monitoring resource usage and allocation in AWS, and monitoring log files for errors and warnings.
    • Provide high-level analysis to apply appropriate technologies and architecture to solve performance issues
    • Creating testing tools that can be configured and used by the engineering team to analyze performance impact
    • Research and remain informed of new technology and tools, and how such technologies could be applied at TraceLink
    • Work closely with engineers building the core TraceLink product to ensure that reliability concerns are factored into the design of the product


    Skills and Requirements:

    • Bachelors in Computer Science, Software Engineering or equivalent
    • Three or more years recent experience working in a performance test engineering role involving programmatic interaction with a system under test (as opposed to and/or in addition to UI automation work)
    • Recent experience using Java, IntelliJ, Ant or Maven, Unix, and an automated unit test framework such as TestNG
    • Experience in developing against web-services and Web-based APIs
    • Recent experience developing and executing formal test plans, data sets and test configurations for assigned feature areas
    • Experience testing web-based enterprise-class business applications
    • Ability to write clearly and concisely
    • Superior written and oral communication skills


    Helpful Skills and Experience:

    • Experience in testing cloud-based applications on Amazon Web Services
    • Experience programming in a functional language (Scala, Ruby, etc.)
    • Pharmaceutical supply chain
