Job Title:  Selenium Automation Engineer

Location: Raleigh, NC

Industry:  Banking

Terms:  Contract (right to hire)

Selenium Automation Engineer Job Summary:

Working to transition off legacy UFT enterprise Scripts onto OpenSource (Selenium with Java) where it makes sense.  Legacy Script is VB.Net inside UFT.


History:  UFT has been in place before the hiring manager (6+ Years).  With the large number of applications within a bank, they have written scripts for a patch / smoke test that run monthly/ Bi -monthly ( (depending on infrastructure level patch) that would impact the application.


  • Ex) MS puts out a patch once a month so they are currently running in UFT.


  • A lot of these scripts run at 5am on Sunday. So if the script was to fail someone at the bank will get a call, and have to get up in the middle of the night. They are very risk adverse at the bank, so this is not something to be treated lightly.


Thought Process -  The Design Layout and a lot of considerations must be made (where do they live? Where to execute? Where to store) 


Strategic– This is not just cranking out scripts; must be able to see the bigger picture and future to where they are going.  They do not have the solution.  Need someone thoughtful in what they are automating, so they don’t put themselves in a corner 3-6 months later. 


  • Ex) I know I need to drive to CA, but don’t know what road to take. Need someone that can both drive & find that path.


You will be focused on mostly core work for the automated services team.  There is one other dedicated resource in this space, with 3+ others that have project in this space. Other projects could be automating a test, or operational efficiency.  Looking for someone with technical depth.


Length: 12 months minimum, then move to other projects. Other small projects – example we have to create some data to check new password policies.  Could be a test, operational efficiently, there is a lot of little things. Technical depth they are working through.

Selenium Automation Engineer Job Requirements:

2+ Years of automation (ideally in selenium)

Java based Scripting Ideal (or any other OOO Language)

The framework exists (page Object Model & TestNG)

Job will be focused on coding from scratch inside the existing framework.

Communication skills & communication style are key (verbal, articulate, communication of project time lines, can answer direct questions, can have an open ended conversation)

Innovative- Looking for someone who shares ideas, who wants to see things done better, someone that can show what they brought to previous companies (what improvements).  Teams mentality “we will try anything once” sometimes have really BAD ideas, sometimes they are pure brilliance.
