We are looking to add a position for a software automation engineer. The automation is mainly automated internal processes such as manual daily database jobs, and helping our tech support department have less "busy" work.
This may sound like a dumb question, but what are they called? Initially for the role we figured Automation Engineer, but we quickly realized we would be getting the wrong applicants. An Automation Engineer automates mechanical automation. We are looking for someone to database and app automation. Software Automation Engineer seems like a logical step, but is that the actual name of the field/job/profession?
Does anyone know what the correct title for this is?
