Carbonite was experiencing steady growth through M&A, which meant constant integration of new customer data and transaction functionality into their existing backend IT systems. Over time, the Selenium/C# test framework comprising thousands of scripts required active maintenance and enhancement – an estimated 1,000-hour effort. To meet this need with a lead time of two weeks, SQA quickly screened, vetted and presented top-notch SDET candidates, one of which who shined during technical vetting with his command of end-to-end (GUI, API, database) test automation. A polyglot, he excelled in using languages like C#, Java, and SQL to drive automation so much he was offered a permanent role with Carbonite to revamp their CI/CD pipeline, primarily using Jenkins.
