Qualities of a Lead Automator

Welcome to “Software Testing Genius”. Subscribe to my RSS feed for latest content on Software Testing.

Responsibilities of a Lead Automator are

1) Design & Development of the automation architecture: working with the test engineers to design and develop a reusable architecture for the test automation.

Such architecture usually develops over a passage of time. It provides the automation test engineers with reusable functions, which improve the robustness, reusability, and maintainability of their test scripts.

Such architecture allows the test automation engineers to successfully automate with standard tool capabilities and easy to use functions. Which in turn reduces a test team's training requirements and speeds up their productivity.

The lead Automator looks at the reusability of the architecture not only on a single project but also for various projects across the organization.

2) Providing assistance in design and development of test automation across various projects.

His key tasks include providing assistance to test engineers in using the automation tool and resolving all technical problems with the tool.

Having a single point of contact with the tool supplier will often facilitate efficient resolution of various issues.
