  • Stay up-to-date with new testing tools and test strategies.

In particular you like doing things such as:

  • Scaffolding test frameworks and tests (e.g. automating the installation of the latest Magisk and testing that against our checks);
  • Reporting more advanced data (timings, RAM usage, size overhead, … );
  • Configuring apps in our products;
  • Writing Appium-style tests;
  • Tying tests to pipelines, ensuring that the pipelines are testing what they are supposed to test;
  • Ensuring the team is alarmed if pipelines are not green;
  • Manually verifying hard-to-automate parts of our systems;
