Role Summary

It’s pretty straightforward. We’re assembling a new team and we need someone to help us in building test automation from scratch. As a Test Automation Leader you will be responsible for setting up test frameworks, test environment, pipelines configuration and automation process oversight.

Testing focuses mainly on web-based applications. Backend, API, data flows, integration between modules and a little bit of end-to-end testing. All of it should be verified against functional and non-functional aspects and quality attributes. You will need to monitor test coverage, measure testing effectiveness and support test engineers in failed cases analysis.

You will not do it alone. On a daily basis you will cooperate with other members of the testing team, as well as Development and DevOps teams. You can count on their support in environment, Infrastructure as Code and datasets configuration. At some point you will also need to participate in manual testing, to learn how the system works and how it behaves from the perspective of Clients.

You will report to the Head of QA and cooperate with Test Leads responsible for testing main web application and particular modules. Within given scope you will have freedom of choosing toolset and approach to achieve project goals. We only expect that you will be using structured and repeatable software processes and ensure that the software meets defined quality targets from Product, User, Data Quality, Functional and non-Functional perspectives.

  • Using in-depth analysis of functional and non-functional specifications to determine test requirements for DevOps, data processing, data models, performance and front-end experience.
  • Building CI/CD pipelines to cater for Product features that may need to be held for bulk releases due to the need for end-client communications and training timetables.
  • Identifying, prioritising and delivering enhancements to automated testing builds and CI/CD processes for active development projects, software patches, regression and major releases.
  • Understanding the flow of code and data between clients, partners, data providers, data pipelines, systems, APIs, and environments to build effective and end-to-end productive test automation solutions.
