As a QA Automation Engineer, you will be involved throughout the development lifecycle of our products developments with responsibility in the quality assurance of software development and deployment with emphasis on development and implementation of test automation. You will be working closely with developers as they develop code to ensure requirements are being met and to the correct quality, and you will conduct automated (and manual tests where necessary) to ensure the software created is fit for purpose. During testing you will be thinking “outside of the box” to understand the various scenarios and configurations that customers use to ensure customer quality is maintained and through doing so drive regression testing across the products. You will be responsible for defining and driving innovative automated testing strategies and tool sets into our overall development processes that support and enhance the current Quality Assurance processes.
