The opportunity

Altus Analytics is growing. We are looking for a Senior Automation Tester to join our team of testers. Someone who is an automation best practices leader, and a self-starter. Someone who can share their knowledge, guide their teammates, and coordinate testing tasks. We need a Senior Automation Tester who can show us the full potential of automation testing, and take us beyond the basics. We want a champion and a strategizer. Someone who is accountable, and constantly researching, tweaking, and testing. A Senior Automation Tester who knows their value and the importance of QA and who can liaise with all sides of the business to get the best results.

Who you are

You are an experienced Automation Tester who wants to step up into a Senior role. You enjoy working with big data sets in a MySQL database. We need a Senior Automation Tester who both loves to work in Agile and yet is flexible to adapting methodologies and introducing new techniques to ensure the best work is being done in the most timely manner.

This is a Senior Automation Tester role for someone within an enterprise organization. A chance to move into a startup-like environment, and have your voice heard while introducing processes and change. Someone who enjoys working in small teams, at a fast-pace, in two week sprints, jumping from discussions with product managers and developers to mentoring team members. Someone with outstanding communication, the ability to stand their ground on well researched opinions, and a go-get-it-done attitude.

What does your future look like?

This is an opportunity to increase your skills as a people leader and a chance to be a key contributor on a brand new platform that will be used on a global scale. This is a role for an Automation Tester who wants to build the automation testing processes and influence the implementation of best practices. Someone who wants to be supported in their career aspirations.

Here’s what our Senior Automation Tester will do:

- Voice their opinion. Present logical arguments for and against automation processes in place, automation tools, and automation tasks.
- Develop and maintain the existing automated test framework, ensuring that it is stable and reliable.
- Manage the nightly automated test build.
- Co-ordinate the automation tests tasks within the team, including code management and review.

- Conduct research, suggest solutions, and generally do whatever it takes.
