Automatic assignment of issue to tester based on component?

I have a project with multiple developers, and multiple testers in charge of different component.

In real life, developer Bob will develop component Foo, and tester Alice will test it. Developer Mike will develop component Bar, and tester Dan will test it.

I can setup automatic assignment to Bob & Mike, but once the development is done, I can't automatically assign to the correct tester, since there's no way to set specific roles for components.

Is there any way to achieve this? Maybe using a plugin?

You'd have to do it as part of a post-function in a transition; since it's conditional, a script runner post function that contains the component-to-tester mapping would work.  You could do that at create time, or during a transition specific to "ready to test".  There would be coding involved, but not an excessive amount.  There are samples of similar scripts in the following questions:
