  • Develop and execute agile work plans for iterative and incremental project delivery.
  • Maintain job knowledge by studying software development techniques and programming languages. Participate in educational opportunities and read professional publications.
  • Work with test teams to ensure adequate and appropriate test case coverage; investigate and fix bugs; facilitate and manage the quality process.
  • Work directly with stakeholders, engineering, and test to create high quality products that solve end-user problems.
  • Coordinate work across various teams in a complex environment
