Hiring automation engineers has always been a trick thing.

And the worst thing you can do is to add all the buzz words you know of around automation.

Finally when the candidate comes on board they end up doing exploratory testing only!

Here are few pointers for hiring:

  • Look for programming aptitude.
    • If your framework is in java, not necessary to hire someone with 10 years of Java experience
  • Testing acumen.
    • Are good in identifying risks
    • While a can-do attitude is a must, for automation positions someone who ‘enjoys’ problem solving is required
