Mainframe Tester

Job Description


Our Client is going through the process of modernizing their technology and are currently solidifying their plans to start moving certain applications off of the mainframe and into AWS. This is a unique role in that they would like to find a strong mainframe tester who would like to make a career change into learning AWS and testing in that space.

The first application they’ll move to the cloud is responsible for processing and transmitting certain files to a third-party vendor and then back into the mainframe. This person will help them maintain this application on the mainframe while also learning AWS and helping build out the testing plan for the migration. The vision and architecture are in place and now they’re in the process of designing the plan and the training to get there.


  • Experience testing on the mainframe
  • ETL knowledge
  • Cobol experience
  • A strong desire to learn AWS and help them test the migration of this app while moving into the cloud.

Very nice to have:

  • .Net knowledge (their mainframe is peppered with some .Net code)
  • AWS knowledge
