TPOT says “Where do I begin with this gem? Let’s take it from the top..
The title “Associate Quality Assurance Developer” – what is this? They forgot to add Business Analyst and Project Manager to the title. Then there’s the whopping $20/hr for a 1 month contract. Good thing Pleasanton, CA has a low cost-of-living. Conduct UAT and do test automation on payroll and maybe another app – in 1 month…for $20/hr. I would make a list of everyone that applied for this job and blacklist them. Oh ya, you should have an HR and/or payroll background, in addition to your SQA Robot and VB background.
