          • Actively tracks and identifies weak spots in quality where functional and non-functional automated test cases and scenarios are missing and resolves this by adding the necessary automated tests to the appropriate level
          • Ensures that the software behaves as expected both functionally and non-functionally and prevents reoccurring issues from happening via the implementation of automated testing
          • Performs manual exploratory testing that is timeboxed and hypothesized to augment the existing automation testing strategy and ensures that valuable scenarios are automated
          • Actively works with the entire team to ensure that the functional and non-functional test scenarios across products are defined and adhered to in the automation suite
          • Identifies and ensures both functional and non-functional automated test cases are proportionally distributed and fall part of the ideal automated testing pyramid

          • Analyze live incident trends and design and implement solutions to ensure the scenarios are covered by automated tests which reduce the number of incidents going forward
          • Analyze and design test scenarios and the required steps including seed data strategies to ensure that the automated test suite’s tests are of quality and are valuable allowing teams to implement these automated tests
