Senior quality assurance and test automation engineers design applications that will convert manual test preparation into automated test preparation. They design, create, test and implement these solutions in order to automate as much of the manual test preparation as possible by using codes and scripts. Test automation engineers are usually part of a team: They work with the test lead to identify any challenges that could cause problems during the test automation process. They work with test designers to understand exactly what the requirements of the test are. They also work with the developers who have created the application being tested. All must work together in order to ensure that the testing process goes smoothly. In order to get the most out of the automation process, a test automation engineer must know when to implement automated solutions and in what order.
