Senior SDET (Advisory) – Test Innovation and Automation

Innovation and automation are at the heart of what we do every day. EY does not compete as a commoditized testing services provider. Our clients can hire anyone to code, test or automate but they choose EY as a strategic partner to create solutions, solve problems and transform how they work. See examples of our work here:

Most of our projects are built in Java but you will also be exposed to different technologies including web (Angular, React, etc), other languages (.NET, python, etc), web/microservices and databases. A key part of innovation is using the right tool for the job so you’ll always have opportunity to learn and leverage new technology as it comes out such as machine learning, natural language processing (NLP) and data analytics.

Our purpose statement: To ask better questions and innovate with technology to provide better testing solutions .

The Opportunity

You have the opportunity to become a thought leader and change agent by applying your technical skill and innovative thinking to help our clients succeed. You must stay on the leading edge of technology and use it to create bespoke solutions to solve problems for our clients. Specifically, your mission will be to design, build, deploy and customize complex technical solutions to accelerate and streamline software application delivery and system integration projects. Our clients look to us to solve their problems not just deploy software they could do themselves so this means you’ll be expected to build custom frameworks, tools and utilities such as custom automation drivers, JSON and XML parsers, integrations between tools and extend existing frameworks to provide new, cutting edge technologies.

Your Key Responsibilities

In this role, you will lead teams through the technical design, build, implementation and operationalizing complex technical solutions. You will need to ask better questions to truly understand our client’s “why” and develop better answers by drawing on your experience in consulting and technology.

  1. Create and articulate innovative solutions that add value to our clients and differentiate EY

  2. Be a champion for our thought leadership and leading capabilities internally and externally

  3. Develop relationships and communicate effectively with client peers and executives

  4. Look beyond deliverables to understand client needs and pain points

  5. Lead US and global teams of 2 – 10 members in client projects

Skills and attributes for success

To be successful, you must understand your purpose and passion and how to apply that to your work. This includes:

  1. Being a passionate technologist, innovator and solution builder

  2. Being a leader and mentor to build and nurture high performing teams

  3. Understanding your role is not “just testing”

  4. Take ownership of your power to impact the success of our clients and EY by living our purpose statement

  5. Experience in conceptualizing, building, implementing and operationalizing technology solutions to work smarter, not harder

To qualify, you must have

  • Bachelors degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or a related field and approximately 3 years of relevant work experience

  • Passion and interest for solving problems using technology

  • Seeing problems as challenges and opportunities, not roadblocks

  • Technical experience with all aspects of the software lifecycle including design, architecture, development and testing

  • Any sub-area or use case of Artificial Intelligence (machine learning, natural language processing, etc)

  • CICD implementations and tools (example: Jenkins, Ansible, GitLab)

  • Working knowledge in web technologies such as Angular, React, HTML/CSS, etc

  • Post-COVID, we would expect for you to be available to travel outside of your assigned office location up to 50% of the time, plus commute within the region. Successful candidates must work in excess of standard hours when necessary.
