Non-Gaming QA Programme Manager
I have been in Software Engineering since I graduated in 2006. I have had various roles at McAfee, from Junior C++ Developer to Build Engineer, Scrum Master to finally QA. in 2017, I became QA Manager for 2 teams. In November 2018, I left the world of Cyber Security to head up the testing of the non-gaming systems at Camelot (Home of the National Lottery). My real passion is helping people grow in our industry, enabling people to get into roles and provide them with all the skills they need to be the best they can. I regularly give careers talks on Testing and IT in schools, universities and other organisations to help encourage new talent to take the plunge.
I’m also the host of the Aylesbury Tester Gathering which is a monthly event which provides opportunities for local Testers and others interested in Testing to get together, network, enjoy pizza and hear talks from some of the great voices of our industry. Simon’s blog can be found here
