CVS Health (501+ Employees, 13% 2 Yr Employee Growth Rate)
RxConnect processes three million prescriptions per day for CVS Health. The mission of Performance Testing (PT) is to avoid unanticipated issues and adverse change impacts in Production by validating non-functional requirements. All software and hardware changes for RxConnect go through PT before being approved for Production.
Performance Architect will work with cross functional groups to develop and document performance test strategies for new projects, releases, and initiatives.
Ensure appropriate levels of performance testing are conducted before any changes are introduced to a production system.
