Job description

To strengthen a System Test & Release team in the Advanced Packaging Mass Reflow division we are looking for a skilled Software Test Automation Engineer. You will be part of an experienced group of Software Developers and Testers to improve the automated testing of new functionality and manual regression tests to shorten the time to market.

In this role you will be encouraged to take on the responsibility of all test related tasks. You will be working in an informal and high tech environment, solving challenging test and engineering questions and developing personal growth.

As a Software Test Automation Engineer you will participate in the complete development process from requirements to acceptance; review and provide input for requirements, reviewing of software specs, create test designs/cases, write specifications, analyze and interpret results, problem reports and change requests. All these tasks are focused on test automation; how can we auto test this? What is the best level to automate this? What do we need to automate this?

On a daily basis, you work closely with the software developers and testers to get all new functionality and manual regression tests automated and on the correct test level (unit, module, integration, GUI, etc). A software background is preferred to understand the language of the software engineers.

Another responsibility is to get the "Roundtrip" tests automated; this means that several of the products need to be working together in a desktop environment to be able to do the "Roundtrip" test.

Also, you'll study new test techniques, methods and tools and make recommendations with respect to their usage within test automation. You remain pragmatic and willing to discuss what will really help the customer/developer.
