How to approach the introduction of auto-tests in the project?

Good time of day. Work in a Bank (all related rigmarole in the form of increased security measures, etc. supplied) in a team that creates a new website for the company. The project is a little more than half a year (if you take the time from the launch site). A lot of things happened with this project before I, the usual chiropractor, I came here. Until recently, individual testers on the website did not exist, was taking people from other teams for a couple of days in order to quickly get rid of the functionality that would not Stalitsa on the release. Digging in the documentation and a little dragon came to the conclusion that recourse to drive about 400 scripts in the supply of fixes/functionality every few days, it's become somewhat stressful. Suggested the authorities to think over what to implement auto tests. Well, as expected, told me well done do it, the main thing that we top does not have to pay for new software.

Actually the question. Please advise me what best can come from the existing tools and techniques on the subject. Everything will be 0 so there is room to roam (the main thing that is free:) )
I'm in this area are a beginner, the time I have given a lot to this. To evolve also very desirable and this sounds very interesting.
I would be grateful for advice. Thank you

Based on this we can assume that tested the functionality through exploratory testing according to the method of black box. It means you need a end-to-end testing.
Once the project for the web without additional costs, then the obvious answer is Selenium. About him written and rewritten at the conferences told by tons. Selenium supports multiple languages Java, C#, Ruby, Python. The lowest barrier to entry from Python. To read/view about the page object pattern and forth.
I somehow eyes came across quite decent and even a free course "test automation with Selenium and Python".
For the future, for the diagnosis of difficulties arise in the process of automation and to identify possible ways out of them on a macro and micro level can recommend this resource testautomationpatterns.org - one of the creators of the infamous Dorothy Graham.
