Test Automation Engineer | Technical Software

The function

Is your passion for technology and do you enjoy taking on complex technical challenges? Then the position of Test Automation Engineer suits you well.

The Agile project approach is slowly becoming the standard, with the result that project teams have to deliver software in short iterations. This results in exponentially growing regression test sets making test automation insurmountable. As a Test Automation Engineer you are responsible for writing and executing system, integration and acceptance tests. You are then also able to program/script that using automatic testing tools or you are able to implement a test framework yourself.

You are able to convert your technical creativity into smart test scripts in (multidisciplinary) technical R&D or OEM environments. You can think of creating a test automation framework for a milking robot or for truck systems. You contribute to the development of new products/systems or to the addition of new important features. You work together with your team in project form where you as a Test Automation Engineer convert the requirements into working tests that are performed fully automatically by the build system, so that the quality of the software is guaranteed.
