Test engineers are not manual testers, nor are you an engineer that writes tests all day. As a test engineer you design & create tools that enable engineers to be efficient when testing their own code & systems at scale.
At ActionIQ were focused on building a scalable Enterprise Customer Data Platform (CDP). In order to do this our engineers have to be able to move fast to react to the needs of a new, quickly developing market. Additionally, our reliability needs to be best in class. This requires creative insights on how to bring testing back into the forefront for dev velocity tooling.
Our product & platform provides a variety of functions to marketers at our clients & we have built our software in a componentized manner that aligns with the functional value we have to offer. Therefore, each layer requires (1) a testing strategy, (2) infrastructure to apply said testing strategy, & of course (3) implementation of the tests using the infrastructure.
