About the role

Within our upcoming infotainment system, you will be driving the test automation for the core as well as most important feature titled “Dynamic Content”, which enables the full lifecycle of 1st, 2nd and 3rd party applications.

You will be able to utilize your experience and expertise with automated tests on multiple levels in shaping “Dynamic Content” such as:

  • Unit tests
  • Component tests
  • Integration tests
  • System smoke tests
  • Basic feature tests

In an agile development team you will develop and maintain these automated tests, while ensuring that visibility is given on the quality assessment. Besides development and maintenance, you will be coaching the team in quality assurance with best practices and mindset. To facilitate a test architecture, you will be aligning with other Software and Test Automation Engineers beyond your own team.

Development is typically in Python, while making use of modern tools, technologies, engineering practices and methodologies. However, you should be familiar with C++ as this is the language of choice for the components under test.
