A bit about me...

I started my business at the beginning of 2019 after working as an accountant for 12 years. I have always loved the technical side of software and problem solving. I have had many years’ experience testing software and training people on new systems. Also, helping teams in companies work more efficiently and become productive. Since starting my business I have already seen an improvement on how development teams work together in companies and how they have taken on an agile approach.

I have worked in various industries including manufacturing, construction, health sector, public sector and finance, working on various platforms including desktops, web app, mobile app. .

I have experience working with companies across the world including UK, Ireland, USA, New Zealand, India, China, Germany, France and Italy.

Due to my experience and knowledge over the years I have seen the importance of good software systems and how a poorly designed software system can cause problems for companies and that is why I decided to start up the company.

 

Recommendations

"When we worked with VTC recently, they really drove and helped us to see the benefits of integrating test resources deeply into the devleopment process. Most previous places I've worked didn't have the level of integration that we saw when we worked with VTC, and we really saw the benefits of bringing testers more into the team rather than just "chucking code over the fence" for them to test."
