Job Description

Our job at Mandiant Security Validation is to make sure that our customers' Cyber Security Technologies are living up to their sales pitch.

We are looking for people that are excited about working on challenging problems in a complex environment while working for a growing company in an important market space. Our automated test engineers focus on reducing our time to test so that we can improve our time to market. The right person will have a chance to learn several new tools and technologies, while helping to completely automate our testing. They will get a chance to work closely with automated testing tools like TestCafe and Pytest; DevOps tools like Docker, Kubernetes, Ansible, and Terraform; while stitching together different technologies with Jenkins and Groovy on VMWare and AWS.

A successful candidate should be able to test user interfaces, web-based APIs, and system processes using the best tool for the job. The tool may be JavaScript, using the TestCafe framework for verifying UI elements and functionality. Or it may be Python, using Pytest to verify that a RESTful API is responding as intended. It might be Ansible, or Bash, when we need to verify that the system is in good shape (processes are running, logs are being rotated, files are in the correct place). There are several interesting, and challenging, areas that need to be covered by automated tests.
