Laura (and Ethan) are looking for a tester at MSDN. People who remember/care what I write know for my love of and respect for testers at the mothership, so I think of this as a great opportunity for someone. However, Laura has, uhm, let's just say used an internal URL for the job (she's fixed it since), so here's the real one, and the description:


Are you ready to join an exciting team? MSDN is revolutionizing the way developers get the resources and information they need. MSDN Test is looking for an experienced SDE/T to help mentor and lead a team of testers responsible for delivering quality releases bringing MSDN forward as a .Net showcase. Key areas of responsibility will be functional, performance, and security testing, as well as a hands-on roll in ensuring the quality of our releases.
A successful candidate will be passionate about software development, testing, and releasing great products for our customers. The candidate should have excellent writing and communications skills, superior analytical skills, and a strong understanding of the software development process and testing methodology. The successful candidate should be adept with C#, XML, ASP, ASPX, VB.Net, .NET Framework, SQL. Additional experience with Darwin and MadDog would be a bonus. The ideal candidate should have experience with testing both web-based products as well as packaged products, with at least 3 years of testing experience (including at least one full product cycle). A BA/BS degree in Computer Science or a related technical field is preferred.


Use the submission above, but you can also send your resume to Laura or myself.

PS: Oh, and despite my usual bitterness, I'll add one more 'great thing about working here' -- More information available than anyone can absorb. Much more than trying to sip at the firehose, this one matches the challenges of Thor.
