Test Automation Engineering

Let your test automation help you deliver quality software faster

Spend more time building and delivering your software quickly, and stop stressing about delays because you're constantly fighting bugs.

Test automation can help you produce better software.

Everyone wants to build software that works great with few bugs. However, it's not as simple as manually running through a few scenarios and deploying it to your customers. Producing high-quality software takes time and effort to test properly. You already have enough on your plate, and spending hours doing manual testing isn't a priority.

Bugs often begin creeping in. At first, it's just a handful that you and your team can handle. But before you know it, you'll find yourself spending your days squashing bugs instead of creating new functionality that will delight your customers. When you get to this point, it can feel like a battle that will never end.

If you're building a software application, you likely have thought of test automation. The promise of creating a test suite that runs most of your scenarios automatically is alluring. Having a solid system in place that can detect issues early can free up a significant amount of time to do more high-value work.

How can you get started with test automation, and how can you get successful results?

While test automation helps free up your time, you need to have the right system in place to get the most out of it. Some of the most common problems teams face when working on test automation are:

  • Figuring out how to start implementing test automation for their existing projects.
  • Spending days or weeks finding the right tools for the job, only to discover that they don't work quite as expected.
  • Having to spend too much of the workday tweaking and fixing their test automation workflow.
  • Getting to a point where it's almost impossible to maintain the existing test suite.

Hire a test automation engineer to set up the right solution for you

If you don't know where to start with test automation or have trouble handling your existing automation workflow, hiring a test automation engineer can get you up and running in no time. Unfortunately, hiring a freelancer is not as straightforward as posting to a job board and having talented people come to you. It's a time-consuming process that often feels like a gamble.

If you've ever had to hire someone to work on your software project on a contract basis, you've probably hired someone who was more of a hassle than they were worth. Maybe they were inexperienced or never took the time to fully understand your needs. Perhaps they didn't communicate well or frequently and needed more hand-holding than you expected.

The next time you want to hire someone to work on your test automation needs, you want to leave out the guesswork and hire the right person who can get the job done quickly and effectively with minimal guidance. You want someone who takes the time to understand what you need fully, someone who will always keep you up to date on how the work is going.

As someone who's worked in software development and test automation for over a decade, I've seen first-hand the difficulties in finding experienced engineers who can solve the right problems quickly and effectively. Hiring someone to help your business is tough, and finding the right freelance person can seem like an impossible hill to climb. You don't know if someone has the experience to deliver quality work suited to your specific needs.

It doesn't have to be that way. I can help you avoid all the pitfalls of hiring the wrong freelancer to get an effective and robust test automation workflow by working with you to build exactly what you need - on time and without the headaches.

In my work as an engineer-for-hire, my main goal is to take the time to understand your business, figure out the problems you want to solve and come up with the right solutions for you and your customers. I take pride in producing well-designed results that work as expected and are easy to maintain. Beyond my technical expertise, I also ensure clear and constant communication throughout our time working together.

Dennis was extremely generous in sharing his knowledge and genuinely wanted to help us out. After making no progress for a week, Dennis looked at our situation and within hours was able to tell us why what we were trying to do wasn't working, what needed to be fixed (and who to talk to), and gave us alternative solutions if we wanted to change course. Dennis provided exactly the type of expert guidance we desperately needed. Highly recommended!

End-to-End Testing with TestCafe book

End-to-End Testing with TestCafe

One of my favorite test automation tools is TestCafe, an end-to-end testing framework. I have used it successfully in multiple projects, in some cases helping reduce regression testing times by almost 50% while catching more bugs before they went to production.

Due to my success and experience with TestCafe, I wrote End-to-End Testing with TestCafe. The book covers the TestCafe testing framework, teaching how to use it in real-world scenarios with a custom-built web application.

Dennis is incredibly professional, reliable, and proactive. We’ll definitely hire him again in the future.
