The right fit is a Python expert who has built test automation frameworks for the purpose of testing mobile wireless scenarios such as cellular protocols. So this person is a developer. Also, she/he will then run manual tests, then automate those tests.

Located in the northern Virginia, Washington, DC metro area, my client is a startup with patented communications technology that enables text messaging anywhere in the world with direct satellite to mobile device communications which does not require special dedicated receivers to operate, just your standard mobile device. They have series A funding and will soon be going out for series B.

In this position you will be responsible for designing, building, integrating, and testing hardware and software for our satellite-based cellular towers in a rapid and agile manner, basically working at a cellular network test engineer. You will work closely with the development team and the product manager to understand the product requirements and provide feedback. You will then be responsible for designing end-to-end test plans, procedures, and scripts for verifying system requirements are met and identifying bugs. Some of your duties will involve…

Perform manual testing when automation doesn’t yet exist (e.g. new features) and automated testing using our automated testing frameworks.
Design and implement automated test cases using languages such as Python, ROBOT, etc..
Contribute to test automation frameworks and data analysis tools.
Leverage various tools and methods, such as network analyzers, traffic generators, simulators, emulators, etc..
Stay updated with the latest cellular network trends and technologies, such as 5G, LTE, and IoT.

Bachelor’s degree (or higher) in Electrical/Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Computer Science, Telecommunications Engineering, or a related field.
At least four years of experience integrating and testing cellular communications systems including (GSM / 2G and LTE / 4G).
In-depth understanding of the GSM and/or LTE architecture, protocols, and standards.
Experience using network testing tools and frameworks, such as QXDM, Wireshark, Spirent, IXIA, iPerf, Traceroute, etc.
Experience writing automated scripts for executing and running telecommunications test cases.
Proficiency with Linux Operating Systems.
Proficiency with scripting in Python and Bash.
Proven experience leading product testing.
Understanding of networking concepts (Ethernet, TCP/IP, etc.).
Proficiency desired in Object Oriented Programming (OOP), C/C++, or Java.
Experience with programming languages, databases, and web technologies, such as C, Python, SQL, and HTML.
Familiarity with concepts such as DevOps, IaC, CICD, and SCM.
Experience with tools such as Gitlab, Jenkins, AWS Cloud, Terraform, Ansible, Docker, and Kubernetes.

The following question will help determine if you are qualified for this opportunity…

This is the big qualifying question, “Have you built test automation frameworks from scratch, either in Python or another backend language?”
If yes, follow up question, “Were you using a tool to do it, or coding in that backend language and building the framework from scratch?”
The last follow-up question, “What were the purposes of several of the test automation frameworks you built?”
That’s the core role of this engineer. If you are just writing test cases and automating tests, you would not be a fit for this developer position.
