Welcome to your bright and brilliant future!

Your responsibilities

  • In this role, you’ll lead the system testing, most especially the real-time testing (in monthly releases) for telecommunication approaches such as functional, agile, integration and regression automation in order to ensure application quality assurance and an unobstructed access to smoothly functioning data networks.
  • For this purpose, you’ll develop failover scenarios with several vendors, such as Cisco, Juniper, Huawei and Nokia, in order to identify system/network failures and create new solutions for emergency call procedures on real-time SIP networks.
  • Furthermore, you’ll be in charge of an intriguing and interesting variety of processes, tasks and technologies in the context of telecom network architecture, auditing, resiliency, testing, deep-dive analysis, configuration and monitoring (of, for instance, cloud/software technologies, hardware installations, web-based IT layers such as OSS/BSS, access and/or local area networks, i.e. LANs, routers, switches, Layer 2/3 Ethernets, fiber connections, and so on).
  • And it gets even better: you’ll get to support multiple technological disciplines (such as OSS applications, network monitoring tools, Layer 2/3 VPN configuration and network test bed preparation/planning, just to name a few) and unleash your full professional and creative potential by developing the necessary infrastructure for data, voice and video services.
  • This means you’ll be working closely with our clients, maintaining good business relationships through proactive personal communication, arranging and attending meetings, conducting workshops, assessments etc. This will help you to thoroughly understand their current situation, challenges, needs, requirements and future plans/aims, especially concerning functional and automation testing.
