Refactor our tests (Whistler, Vancouver, Manila or Remote)

We need someone immediately to refactor a bunch of our tests.

Our current test suite takes several hours to run (it currently runs in parallel on 40 servers for ~20 min).

We're looking for someone who'd like to work with us temporarily to help us catch up on this large technical debt and help us write a better faster test suite around these components currently tested by the slow suite.

They're full stack integration tests .. they hit the db, and experience full page loads, and a lot of them in general have poor "setup" decisions where they click through the GUI to do setup instead of just setting it in a given step.

We've since given up on cucumber, it doesn't really do anything to us. 

RSpec integrations allow for a more natural engineer interface of testing, our legacy tests don't tend to have equivalent unit tests so we're reluctant just tossing them.

You would be welcome to tackle this project from our office in Whistler, Vancouver, Manila Philippines or remotely.

Build something, Test something, or at least talk to a client,
