FX Technical Test Analyst

This is an AVP role within BARX FX Technology team. We require a candidate with the capability of thoroughly testing complex algorithms. The BARX FX architecture has a number of hidden dependencies so the candidate needs to be detailed, analytical, mathematical, collaborative and good at problem solving. The initial testing on any complex change is likely to be exploratory in nature; this will then convert to automated testing when the functionality is close to the final solution. The candidate will therefore need to be able to define an automation strategy and script an automated regression pack using the current BARX FX AutoTest framework

Your Role
· BARX FX is an eCommerce application for FX Algorithmic Pricing & Trade Capture
· The application covers multiple assets within BARX including FX Cash, FX Options, Rates Options & Money Markets
· The role is to work within the BARX FX Test & QA Team ensuring continued high quality delivery
· The team plays a critical role in ensuring the quality of software being released to production is of a very high standard
· The team takes a pragmatic approach, automating where feasible but directly testing everything else
· The team is responsible for the maintenance, and execution of both manual & automated regression tests, the latter developed using the BARX AutoTest framework
· The candidate will report into one of the BARX FX Test Managers

Essential Skills
· Experience of testing algorithms
· Experience with detailed log file analysis for de-bugging as part of Server side testing
· Experience with test scripting with either a bespoke or off the shelf automation tool (not record & play)
· Effective and confident communicator across test/development team members, project managers, managers, support & users

Desirable Skills
· Strong knowledge of test automation methodologies
· Experience of test automation in a complex domain (does not have to be FX or Banking)
· Experience in the creation, maintenance, and execution of automated tests
· Experience with one or more programming languages (e.g. Java)
· Experience with one or more scripting languages (e.g. Python, bash or sh)
