Role Purpose The QA Automation team is responsible for signing off all releases to UAT (for user sign off) and ultimately Production.
We have developed (and still continue to develop) a state-of-art automation platform which allows components as well as integration testing of any and all components front-
to-back (as mentioned above). The role is for a Test Engineer in the Electronic team. You will be tasked with writing new test cases as well as modifying / maintaining the existing test suite related to SOR / LMX as well as the IOIs (Indication of Interest) space.
Test scripts are written using a fluent interface developed in-house which abstracts all the technologies used (so you do not need to worry whether a message or event is sent through Tibco or TCP for example) allowing the Test engineer to focus on the test themselves.
The Electronic space is probably the most active and dynamic right now as Barclays is looking to decommission his legacy low / zero touch platform and migrate over to a strategic architecture
