Kelly has worked in the software testing industry for over 15 years. She has had the opportunity to work with high profile companies on a range of projects from small startups through to multimillion-dollar systems. This has given her extensive experience in understanding the QA needs for a business, a team, the processes and tools required to best suit.
In her current role as QA Team Lead for Transpire, she continues to embark on the journey of test automation. With a more recent focus on native iOS and Android apps, working with a range of tools such as Appium, XCUITest, Espresso as well as API specific, SoapUI and Mocha has allowed her to garner a deeper understanding of the technologies to determine the best solution for a product’s needs.
She understands that not all projects are the same and not all companies are the same. That is why she feels the need for personalised solutions which satisfies a specific requirement and the expertise of the team.
Kelly strongly believes testing cannot be a person’s responsibility. It’s about understanding the skills of the team and choosing a solution that best fits. This and incorporating CI/CD best practices as a team, ensures collaboration and shared responsibility within the team.
With a current focus on working to improve end to end CI/CD solutions with development teams, Kelly will continue to familiarise and up-skill to recognise the best Quality Assurance solutions for her and her team.
