UNIX shell scripting

In Progress

Please note. This project is only open to Thai citizens living in Thailand and interview will happen in Thailand.

We are interested in establishing a working relationship with a

competent unix programmer that is interested in developing new tests

for an existing test framework, and eventually, possibly take over

maintainance of the test framework.

You need to have considerable experience with with writing unix

shell scripts. Some Perl knowledge will also be beneficial.

We have a large, fully functional, test framework in place that

is used to test internally developed software.

This framework consists of several hundred different tests for

multiple products, primarily written in Bourne shell and perl, with

some awk code too.

The test framework has been developed in-house, as have all the

tests, by staff who are still working for the company. There will

thus be someone you can ask questions of and who will provide help

and guidance.

There is no GUI involved in this. All tests and all output is

text-based, as are the products being tested.

The basic procedure when using the test framework is to specify

on the commandline what test to run, let the test framework run

the test, and look at the results. The results will indicate success

or failure. In case of failure, what failed will also be shown

with enough details for debugging to start.

After having been written, tests are mainly run in an automated

manner, where all or a subset of the tests are executed. A summary

is then mailed out showing the status of the tests. The developers

will usually then re-run the tests that are failing manually to

debug any problems that are noted in the summary mails.

More details will be provided to interested candidates, perhaps via

a video/skype conference with the main test developer.

The initial task will be to develop a few smaller tests for a HTTP

server. Initially you will develop and run the tests you write

on your own machine.

We imagine the initial task will take around two-three months, working around 20-40% of fulltime,

somewhat depending on how independent you will be able to work and how much time we have

available to provide guidance and explain things. Also so we know you have read the project

description and are not just junkmailing us and everyone else here, please indicate in the first

line of your reply where in Thailand you are living.

If you are interested, please reply with a one-page CV listing

your previous experience and competence.

With kind regards.
