Also:

  • Collaborate with Product and Engineering to develop a comprehensive Test Plan that validates product functionality

  • Develop automated tests using Gherkin and Selenium following defined best practices

  • Develop and execute tests at all levels of the testing pyramid

  • Triage and resolve automated test failures with product engineers directly.

  • Build automated testing frameworks (unit and integration)

  • Drive adoption of CI (continuous integration) and CD (continuous deployment

  • Be a critical participant in the defect management process

  • Use root cause analysis of bugs to determine appropriate test coverage

  • Become a champion and educator of testing best practices

  • Evangelize the importance of testing, especially unit testing, within Xandr
