Cheapflights Media Ltd, QA Manager
May 2005 - Present, London, United Kingdom
The role of the QA team has grown considerably in my time at Cheapflights and since its earliest inception I have developed the team into a valued, independent function that is a core stakeholder across all technology commitments of the company. I am charged by the Chief Technical Officer to deliver quality driven application software that the business teams of Cheapflights can rely on when meeting their commercial challenges.
This growth has taken Cheapflight’s testing from being solely manual and centred around functional, user driven cross browser & regression testing through to automated Performance & Functional solutions. As the company has built up its systems on a core SOA approach, the QA team has learnt how to validate not only web sites but also performance at a service, server and data centre level.
