The Senior Tester is expected to be an expert tester and to be autonomous in their testing, effective testing is always the main role of the Senior Tester. The testing team as well as the Test Lead need to be able to rely on his experience and knowledge to take the right decisions. It is also the duty of the Senior Tester to spread their knowledge to the rest of the test team. When the Test Lead is busy, the Senior Tester is the first point of contact for the team. Their main additional responsibility is to become the relay between the team and the Test Lead. When the workload requires it, the Test Lead can require the Senior Tester’s help for managerial tasks like vetting, help on internal communications, or setting up the team and project.
