Our team 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 Automation team. You will be tasked with writing new test cases as well as modifying / maintaining the existing test suite related to Cash Equities trading platform as well as the SOR / LMX algo platform and 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 automation for Cash Trading applications space is probably the most active and dynamic right now as Barclays is looking to decommission his legacy platforms and migrate over to a strategic architecture. Your Role
