NetSpend is looking for an outstanding individual to fill a Back Office Software Development Engineer in Test (SDeT) position.

Internal Operations (part of Internal-Systems/Back-Office) is a customer-focused team of business, data, and technical experts managing the Master Data Management (MDM), Financial Settlement, and Data-Warehouse environments for NetSpend, one of the leading prepaid card providers in United States. 

NetSpend is looking for an outstanding individual to fill a key Back Office Software Development Engineer in Test (SDeT) position. This individual will provide testing support in all aspects of development- and support-associated activities around integration, extension, and customization of the existing implementation of the MDM system using EBX (by Orchestra Networks).  Automation skills are required -- we’re looking for someone who has a serious aversion to manual testing and would always be looking for ways to automate inefficiencies.

Ideal candidates must have extensive experience translating business requirements into effective test cases, test planning, test automation, and test execution.  This person will be responsible for testing and related duties on a small, dedicated team operating within a Unix environment with Oracle-based applications. Candidates should possess solid working knowledge of commonly used concepts, practices, and procedures within quality assurance and provide subject matter expertise and guidance to other team members. The position will also document and track software defects identified through testing and work with developers and support engineers to resolve outstanding issues.

This is a 7-member, Agile team that takes care of development and production support for various packaged & COTS applications.  It supports financial transfers between external partners as well as ensuring that these transfers are recognized in our Netspend accounting system. Along with regular production support, the team is focused on enhancing the platform's scalability and availability, striving to anticipate growth and improve all levels of service. 

NetSpend offers a fun, personable atmosphere where creativity, ingenuity, and talent are encouraged and rewarded.
