Job Description

Test Impact determination
In discussions with architects and developers, the impact of a release or service pack must be determined to be able to select existing testcases or create new testcases. The software test engineer will look at these deliverables from a customers' point-of-view and test from that system perspective

Software qualification
Define and execute software qualification tests on the new prototype systems and on test benches. Every week a new development software baseline is released and it must be tested on the test benches and the prototype systems. As much as possible it should be tested on the test benches to relieve the claim on the very expensive prototype systems. Therefore, part of the challenge is also to make these test benches as representative as possible.

Creating system tests
Create system level test to qualify the system and the software and to test the reliability of the system and the different modules of the system. These system level tests are typically implemented in the form of Python scripts or as keyword driven testscripts.

Do the first analysis of the problem to find the development project that is responsible for fixing the problem. After the problem has been dispatched you should assist the development project in defining and testing the solution and make sure that they deliver an adequate solution in time.

Clear reporting on issues found, both in an issue database, as well as in overviews and in a test analysis report.

Continuous improvement
New issues coming from the field or from the factory must be analyzed why they were not caught in our own tests, and preventive actions must be defined to make sure future testcases will capture these issues
