About the role

Infotainment systems are like mobile phones, that employ various applications coming from 1st, 2nd and 3rd parties. To facilitate these in an infotainment system, an app environment needs to be given that allows the customer to choose, download and install the apps of interest. While a variety of apps might be employed, the customer expects a seamless, yet always available app runtime that is also safe, meaning preventing the customer of harm. To do so, sophisticated testing needs to be employed, hence you will be able to utilize your experience and expertise with automated tests on multiple levels in shaping the feature “Dynamic Content” such as:

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

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.
