Senior Test Automation / SDET Team Leader
Jan 2010 - Present
Having successfully migrated the previous automation framework across to the new Telerik Test Studio tool which involved learning C#to a high degree and several training courses on the subject of Test Automation and the Test Studio, my request to expand my team was accepted and I employed a test automation engineer whom I managed and mentored. At this point I was promoted to the team leader and also developed and trained the manual QA members to use the tools I had written and provided them. This enabled them to extend the amount of test coverage throughout each test run. I was then requested to become part of the team to aid in the transition from the previous waterfall to the current agile methodologies which involved many process and team structure changes. Often relying on my good communication skills and product knowledge I was able to discuss many real life scenarios with both internal and external stakeholders to introduce into the automation suite which provided aid in both the collaborative and regression testing.
