In this crucial role, you will work across multiple teams and use your analytical and technical skills to assure we achieve top quality in our business systems and application solutions. You'll work in an ever-changing technical environment that gives you a unique view into the cross section of our business, agency force and customer experience. You'll be working and communicating with project teams, managers, and co-workers to propose and drive new and expanded testing approaches. Each day your talents will be leveraged in different ways.

Who We Are: With Farm Bureau Financial Services, our client/members can feel confident knowing their family, home, cars and other property are protected. We value a culture where integrity, teamwork, passion, service, leadership and accountability are at the heart of every decision we make and every action we take.

What You'll Do:

You'll need a college degree or equivalent experience, plus five years relevant experience. Application development experience (C# .NET) is required, and Selenium WebDriver would be a plus. Because you're connecting across teams, you need excellent communication skills and the ability to flourish in a team environment. Your strategic focus allows you to thrive as you focus on how we can tackle the future with new testing methodology. If this fits you, and if you're excellent at analytics, test automation, and problem solving, then we'd like to talk to you!
