What does a great Performance Assurance Engineer do?
As a Performance Assurance Engineer, you will establish yourself as a trusted engineer by helping ensure overall satisfaction with the solutions, which serve thousands of banks while processing trillions of dollars and billions of transactions a year. Product Development and Product Management will rely on you to provide performance assurance of the solutions that the company provides. It is crucial that you become an advocate for our internal clients, our operating model and technology strategies, as you will be responsible for identifying and reporting application performance issues to enterprise stakeholders.

You will represent the Bank Solutions business unit as a designated performance assurance engineer for assigned projects. You should be comfortable creating and reviewing complex code and documentation across many disparate technologies, with a strong knowledge of cloud-enabled development and an aspiration to quickly understand complex proprietary infrastructure architecture. Your responsibility is to proactively measure the performance and capacity of supported applications and communicate the relative risk of detected issues. This role will work closely with project teams to ensure performance testing requirements are completed and the results meet client expectations.

This role must manage diverse system platforms and product lines within the company and able to adapt quickly to unfamiliar technologies. It is critical that you continually learn and maintain current knowledge of company solutions and industry-standard development practices and technologies to provide meaningful and efficient test results of various solutions.

Bank Solutions, and most importantly, our clients, expect high quality applications. Success in your efforts accordingly will foster customer loyalty, and lead to improved client retention and overall client satisfaction.

It is critical that you know how to leverage Wireshark, Fiddler or other proxy-based tools to intercept and inspect message requests and responses. You must also exercise strong problem-solving skills with limited assistance.
