The Role

As a Senior QA Automation Consultant you’ll be expected to:

/ Support current teams in embedding a test-focused, automation-first approach, whilst delivering products that align with our client’s key business goals
/ Good, demonstratable skills/experience around framework definition (and implementation/roll-out of the framework)

As a consultant and as a binding part between engineers and our clients you are expected to develop expertise both in technology and the means to communicate complex concepts and rationale to non-techies.
