    Your future duties and responsibilities

    As a Test automation Architect you will have the following responsibilities:

    • Ensuring In-sprint automation (Unit and Component Integration Test, API testing, Functional System Test of User Stories).
    • Writing solution automation (Integration of solution components from different scrum teams, interface verification, E2E Business process testing).
    • Smoke testing of new environments.
    • Provide Test Data Management to support testing.
    • Provide Virtualised Services to support integration testing.
    • You will review the applications in scope and identify tooling solutions that meet the requirements, balance coverage with cost and can be integrated within the wider programme CI/CD tooling solution.
    • You will create the test automation strategy and the automation environment requirements, both for development of scripts and frameworks and for the test environments in which automation will be run.
    • You will mobilise the automation team, including appropriate standards and best practices. Automation teams may be near or offshore.

    Required qualifications to be successful in this role

You will also have experience of working with other 3rd party products and APIs. You will have significant previous experience of implementing test automation for large SI programmes using offshore or nearshore resources and agile delivery practices.

    Experience of working within the insurance sector would be nice to have but is not essential. Experience of working within an IT consultancy would also be highly desirable.
    You must have experience of creating test automation frameworks to test five different GUI and non GUI applications using Selenium/Java/Maven/Jenkins.

    Experience of supervising and leading team members, along with allocating and reviewing their work. You will be able to promote their independence whilst ensuring the quality of their work adheres to project standards.
