Robotics Automation Developer

1. Purpose of the Job 

Develop and deliver Robotics automations of rules-based back office processes using the Blue Prism software, leading to steep increase in process efficiency/productivity and significant decrease in process workload costs. 

Developer is responsible for the evaluation of processes on the potential for automation, solution design and validation with process owners, process adaptation, automation development and UAT testing coordination, managing and incorporating process exceptions management, automation documentation, handover to BAU, support and issue resolution and further process automation enhancements based on process future changes. 

Solution design includes ability to split (slice and dice) the process into parts that can and cannot be automated, to gain as much automation potential from every process, as well as being able to propose process changes that will increase the automation potential and decrease future maintenance and operation cost. 

All of these will be done in the context of having zero (!) help and information on the internet, as solution as innovative and proprietary, so very high level of self-reliance and excellent analytical and problem solving skills are absolute musts.

  • Designing automated process solutions in accordance with standard design principles and conventions. Solution design includes ability to split (slice and dice) the process into parts that can and cannot be automated, to gain as much automation potential from every process, as well as being able to propose process changes that will increase the automation potential and decrease future maintenance and operation cost.

  • Supporting the Operational Teams during the UAT and rollout phases 
  • Problem solving issues that arise in day to day running of automated processes and providing timely responses and solutions as required. Since automated workload will result in decrease of positions in operations, any situation when solution stops working will result in more work than people available, and thus it will be extremely important that the automator is able to quickly fix any issue that can happen with the developed automation. 
  • Working within project planning constraints, communicating any identified project risks and issues to the delivery/project manager accordingly and providing inputs to the change control process.
