“RECRUITER NOTES”

PERSONALITY AND TEAM DETAILS: Having a DevOps mentality and/or someone who is familiar with user stories and interacting with ADO would be extremely beneficial!  There will be 3-person teams of ninjas (QA, BA and SW ENG) working a mile-a-minute, so communication and teamwork skills will be imperative!  IF someone has an overlap of skills/experience, such as BA and QA or QA and Dev exp – that would be great!  Be ready to come in, roll up your sleeves and get to work!

DURATION / INTERVIEW: They have staggered Go-Live dates set from Oct 2019 – Apr 2020.  Their fiscal year ends in Apr – so while they expect these contracts to run much longer than 8 months – he can only guarantee someone funding through the remainder of their fiscal year.   Doesn’t see this converting to an FTE.  H1B accepted.
