  • Building and maintaining the test automation pipeline and infrastructure;
  • You analyze the data of the results of the tests and collect feedback from and for engineers;
  • You give feedback about the test results to the team and provide them with substantiated advice;
  • You are involved in new features of the Lely products and associated software applications;

What is your experience?

  • You have a bachelor or master level way of thinking
  • You have several years of relevant work experience as a developer or test (automation) engineer in embedded software.
  • You have experience with both the development and the execution of tests, from the realization phase to the chain and acceptance phase.
  • You have experience with agile working in scrum teams.
  • You have experience with behavior-driven testing and test automation tools (Behave and Gherkin are no strangers to you).
  • You have experience with programming languages ​​(Python, C++), with Python being preferred.
  • You have relevant experience using Bash, Linux, GIT, and CI/CD pipelines.
  • TMAP/ISTQB certification is a plus
  • You can communicate well both orally and in writing in English (and Dutch).

What do we offer you?

We offer..
