Consulting

Projektinhalte
  • Remote work for Siemens in Munich (Germany) from Sydney, Australia (with occasional travel to Munich).

  • Consulting Siemens on how to replace their current test management solution based on Micro Focus ALM (formerly HP ALM, or HP QualityCenter) with Atlassian JIRA with all the relevant software testing plugins, particularly Xray Test Management for JIRA.

  • This gives Siemens one common JIRA platform for all development, testing, and DevOps activities. Results of all automated tests (particularly Java and Selenium, and Micro Focus UFT tests) are automatically updated in JIRA and Xray Test Management for JIRA.

  • The move to JIRA reduces the licensing costs from currently several hundred thousands of Euros per year by up to 90%. The work for Siemens included all technical evaluations and the migration of multiple existing Siemens projects.

  • Technically, the move used Extract, Transform, Load (ETL) principles by extracting data via a REST API from Micro Focus ALM, transforming, cleaning, and linking the data in a relational database, and inserting the data into JIRA through the JIRA REST API. The program code was written in Java, using Apache HTTP client and other widely used open source libraries.

Summary:

The Freelancer is an experienced test manager with deep technical knowledge and practical skills in automated software testing. He worked hands-on in many international projects, as well as on a substantial number of hands?off strategic planning and methodology development roles, such as the implementation of a software testing Center of Excellence for the world?s largest oil producer (Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia), the definition of a global testing tools strategy for the banking group HSBC in London, and the development of an outsourced performance test strategy (through IBM in India) for Deutsche Bank in Frankfurt, Germany.

He has knowledge and experience in test management, functional testing, and performance testing, both on a conceptual level, such as developing test strategies, plans, processes and templates, as well as on a practical hands-on level, ranging from writing and executing manual test cases, up to development and implementation of automated test architectures and frameworks in Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery environments.

The Freelancer has been involved in building up, mentoring and managing teams in many roles. He has been the test coordinator / test manager of a project with more than 100 testers in Asia, Europe, and North America. He has built up two own companies with employees (including hiring, mentoring and training, reviews, administration etc.). He has practical leadership experience and management credibility. Overall, he has more than 20 years of experience in business and particularly in Information Technology through a wide variety of roles.

Software testing tools experience:

The freelancer has developed and introduced multiple test automation frameworks, for example for Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. For Macquarie Bank in Sydney (Australia), he developed a hybrid framework for automated testing based on the open source Open2Test framework. This framework allows the keyword independent interchangeable use of multiple execution engines, such as commercial tools like Micro Focus Unified Functional Testing (UFT), or the open source tool Selenium (WebDriver). For Alfresco Software in Maidenhead in the United Kingdom (the company behind the world?s leading free/libre Enterprise Content Management system) he developed a Java based framework based on the open source EasyTest framework for both automated GUI testing (using Selenium) and API (REST) testing. For NetDimensions (United Kingdom and Hong Kong) and MortgageGym (United Kingdom), he developed and introduced frameworks based on Java, TestNG and Docker that fully integrate in Continuous Integration pipelines.

He used Selenium (WebDriver) in most of his roles since 2007 and has also written multiple guides on how to best use Selenium with Java including Groovy, Appium, and Cucumber/Gherkin.

He is proficient with Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) test software (formerly Qua­lityCenter) since he worked as a first and second level supporter for test management software at Mercury EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) in 2003/2004. He used Micro Focus ALM ever since in many different roles and has set it up and customised it (workflows, integration with third-party tools, API programming etc.) many times.

SAP testing experience:

The Freelancer has extensive SAP project experience in both functional and performance testing with a total of about 5 years worked in SAP projects. Among other SAP projects, he worked on one of the world?s largest SAP implementations for the majority state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco in Saudi Arabia. Other major SAP testing projects included BHP Billiton in The Hague (Netherlands), Nestlé in Sao Paulo (Brazil), Rio Tinto in Brisbane (Australia), Centrica (better known as ?British Gas?) in London (United Kingdom), the chemical giant Lyondellbasell in Cologne (Germany), Queensland Health in Brisbane (Australia), the British gas data provider Xoserve in Solihull (United Kingdom), Inpex in Perth (Australia), and TUI Group AG in Hanover (Germany). He worked with most of the common SAP modules such as Finance, Supply Chain, HR etc., as well as some integrated solutions such as IS-OIL. It is however important to notice that Bruno is an experienced SAP testing specialist (both on SAPGUI for Windows or Java, as well as web), rather than a business expert in any particular SAP module. He does therefore not claim to have functional business knowledge of any particular SAP module.

Roles sought:

He likes to work on projects in any phase from start to finish, including the daily running of testing projects as a test manager (test development and execution, reporting etc.). He likes to be involved in all aspects of software testing, including practical hands-on technical testing. He does not easily get bored and he has plenty of stamina and perseverance. He is adaptive and a quick learner with a broad technical, software testing and general business background and extensive international experience and intercultural competence.

The freelancer likes to work with people and he is a good communicator. His particular strength lies in establishing win?win situations with Subject Matter Experts, who he will often inspire to work closely with the testing team, because he can make them realise that they will enjoy the benefits from working with the development/testing team in the long term by getting better performing and more reliable software to work with. He can convince Subject Matter Experts that testing is a service that works for them.

Due to his diversified background and broad range of experiences and qualifications, he can work through all phases of a Greenfield project from design, through implementation and execution, right through to completion.

The candidate is highly flexible and willing to work internationally, particularly in Europe, the Middle East, and Australia.

 The candidate prefers short-term projects (ideally up to 3 months, but up to 6 months are possible).
