If you're creative, professional and kind, we'd love to hear from you.

  • Create reporting frameworks and actual reports of test results, and set up automated storage and distribution of them

  • Define and maintain a sprint roadmap for test automation in consultation with the team and other stakeholders

  • Experience with quality assurance metrics and reporting

  • Familiarity with CI/CD concepts and best practices including build and source control automation tools Jenkins and Git

An Insider's view of MassMutual

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

As a Product Owner, I spend most of my time collaborating with others across different business units.
