What do you do at SmarTek21?
I’m a SDET currently supporting a large investment client. I provide quality assurance for internal tools involved in the lifecycle of a trade.
After growing up in Montana and getting a degree at MSU, I moved to Seattle. I’ve been fortunate to have worked at a few large and small companies on a variety of solutions and team styles. Primarily my work has been developing automation for web based front ends, but have been worked with many database, front-end, version control, deployment, issue tracking, and other systems.
