I'm working in a organization since 3 month as an automation engineer. Sometime I feel comfortable with my work,Here my responsibilities are analyze end to end product feature, automate them, help out colleagues and troubleshooting the problems. Everything are fine they are happy with my performance no doubt.
But the manual testing process here is not good. Its a startup organization, and we are following Agile (somewhere there is lacking to follow complete process) also using JIRA . The person who take care all the project related things andd coordinate with the company owner is not from technical background. He thoughts like we can work like machine, He don't want to allow all the team to use JIRA (time consuming process as per him) and want to work in adhoc manner and everything in hurry.
So sometime, i also need to look some manual testing (7-8 hrs in a week). The process and atmosphere sometime irritates me even most of colleagues are on same point.
So, can someone suggest, How do a person deal in such situation ? Obviously Only I can not establish or change the process. But can approach to some technical person on upper level ? OR do i have concentrate on my work and provide the output they expecting from me without involving in top level management things ?
