•	Participate in and advise open source projects that DLSS contributes to on testing procedures
•	Review professional literature. Participate in mailing lists and other forums to continually improve knowledge of digital library software and QA practices

•	Experience with RESTful web services and APIs 
•	Experience with multi-tiered systems, including knowledge of web/application servers such as Apache/Tomcat.
•	Demonstrated expertise with XML and related tools and technologies 
•	Quick and self-bootstrapping learner. Particularly adept at quickly learning new scripting and programming languages.
•	Experience with networking and systems integration in a heterogeneous hardware and software environment.
•	Excellent oral, written and analytical skills, and demonstrated commitment to continuous testing improvement.
