Selenium Tester Job Responsibilities

Selenium Job Responsibilities may vary from one company to another and one project to another, but I am covering this topic by considering several companies approaches or in general orientation.

We use Several Software/Tools in Automated Testing with Selenium, Example,

> Selenium WebDriver for Creating Basic Test Cases,

> Java or Other supported Programming for Enhancing Test Cases

> TestNG or other Supported Testing Framework for Grouping Test Cases, Prioritizing Test Cases, Executing Test Batches and Generating Test Results.

> Selenium Grid for Parallel Test execution.

> Maven Integration for creating and maintaining Selenium Test Environment.

> Jenkins for Continuous Integration,
