Testing a suite of Commodity Trading, Derivatives and Reporting Applications, creating regression test packs and working with the Test Manager to automate the testing.
Background: our client uses a number of systems to meet the Physical Trading & Derivatives system requirements of its oil and metals business, which are a mix of third party systems and in-house applications. The systems are used for Risk Management, Profit & Loss reporting, Position Reporting and Data Warehousing.
As new requirements come from the business or as a result of upgrades by 3rd party vendors, the systems require testing of the new functionality. Testing may also be required as a result of changes to trading systems used in the Back and Middle Office which feed into the Front Office systems.
The project team use a blend of agile & waterfall approach to development and JIRA is used to track the project iterations and development. Testing does not yet incorporate fully agile frameworks, and much of it is manual.
The regression test packs need to be extended so that each test can be granulated into a number of steps, to eventually be automated using automation tool such as QTP.
A strategic programme to replace a number of 3rd party systems to support business has begun. As a result, the tester will need to get more involved in system testing of brand new in-house applications using the testing best practices put forward by the head of QA.
