In this role you will write and review automation scripts using Python, Robot (https://robotframework.org/) and Selenium (https://www.seleniumhq.org/about/) or RESTful APIs for new products/features in the visibility area. You will learn and interact with new technologies not only in the visibility area but also on the testing side.
Propose best practices in automation/scripting; Offer support to junior colleagues to help them meet their objectives ( eg: what equipment/ tools are best to use in different scenarios, how a feature should be automated)
Come up with innovative solutions in terms of automation strategy/tool usage/enhancements in automation process
Monitor and review the product’s automation coverage and identify/come up with solutions for potential issues; active contributor to increasing the automation test coverage.
Implement enhancements in the automation framework based on feedback coming from both dev and qa teams.
Work in a mixed team (dev/qa) using Agile methodology and use Jira (https://www.atlassian.com/software/jira) for effort tracking and participate in brainstorming meetings to discuss design ideas or testing strategy;
Contribute to product design and product quality scope, by working with development to design and assure QA automated and manual coverage for software features and hardware platforms
Debug/troubleshoot regressions run through Jenkins (https://jenkins.io/). You will work on a day to day basis with latest code sourcing tools, eg. git and BitBucket Attlasian suite;
Analyze security scans run through 3-rd party vulnerability scanning tools. This means you will keep up with the latest vulnerabilities disclosed and be able to assess the impact for our products, working with tools from Tenable and Qualys;
Work with 3-rd party equipment and troubleshoot issues that come up, eg. routers, firewalls, traffic probes on top of IPv4, IPv6 mediums or even proprietary protocols (eg. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Higig) – learn a lot about network monitoring and security;
Use proprietary testing equipment or other popular traffic tools, eg Scapy (https://scapy.net/), for traffic generation and protocol simulation;
Root cause isolation and proper bug logging to focus on problem description, steps to reproduce, logs/diagnostics;
Design and document test plan and test cases for major features;
Provide input in customer escalations;
Configure/troubleshoot networking and security equipment, OSS and other automation and networking tools, required for medium – major features;
Communicate testing delays and bottlenecks in a timely manner;
Strong scripting skills (Python preferred, Selenium/Rest API are a plus);
Basic linux operating skills; Knowledge of Linux Oss (centos/ubuntu etc)
Working knowledge of networking protocols with a focus on L2/L3 (CCNA level is a plus);
Experience with automation systems (Jenkins is a plus);
Working experience in Agile;
Working knowledge of debugging tools and techniques;
Knowledgeable about tools and debug techniques (Wireshark, Perforce, git, Jenkins, automation harness);
Able to provide technical guidance to junior team members.
Good communication skills to communicate in clear and concise manner with QA/Dev groups/Support Teams/Customers;
Minimum experience: 3+ years;
