What You’ll Do:

  • As a technical, hands-on Test Engineer, your job is to integrate into the general software engineering team and help break our software
  • Work under the guidance of a Test Engineering Manager of a team with an already-established, mature testing process to conduct stress testing, exploratory testing, and automation testing
  • Learn basic software testing theory, how to properly determine type of testing required for a project, and write a lot of code
  • Successfully get through our test engineering boot camp; integrate into an ongoing project and successfully demonstrate that you can perform basic test analysis for any new functionality being developed; and understand the basics of either node.js or Java and the respective automation framework to the point in which you can contribute basic automation tests with little guidance
  • Collaborate with other interns on assigned case study to be presented at the conclusion of the internship

Who You Are:

  • A fast learner and self-starter - you’ll work with colleagues who are incredibly talented, and always willing to share knowledge and a helping hand, so your willingness to take ownership of the outlined goals and make things happen is imperative
  • An empowered collaborator - you contribute ideas and initiative to your work with minimal supervision, and actively interact with team members whether near or far
  • A skilled communicator - you quickly elicit feedback, translate requirements, and troubleshoot issues with colleagues at all levels and from a wide variety of backgrounds

What You’ll Need:

  • Pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Computer Science or related field
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA and 6 – 9 credits in Computer Science or related courses
  • Proficiency in either Java or node.js ( coursework counts as proficiency )
  • Curiosity - asking a lot of questions and enjoying exploration is going to be your best asset

The Northwestern Mutual experience is about the opportunity. It is without barriers, without ego — where feedback is essential, and collaboration is second nature. It clears the way for inspiration, innovation, and your impact to take hold.
