Client Comment: The offer has been declined and we need more resumes. Candidates will need to have hands on Ruby exp. We do not want candidates that have only done testing in Java. They use Ruby for all of their testing Automation. Cucumber is the tool we use. For verifying we also use Postman pretty extensively so that would be a plus. LOCAL CANDIDATES ONLY. NO H1B'S.

(For Candidate use only)
