I lead the testing across multiple product teams, help the teams look for ways to improve, drive quality culture, and try and bring some of the test / tech community into the business
i've been part of bringing brand new products to market from scratch, including products now used globally at very large companies
No degree, i did A levels then worked in IT support. I moved into testing then took a number of professional qualifications, i'm constantly learning either by training or via community resources.
I fell into it and realised i really enjoyed it !
Go for it! There are so many different roles, and so much to learn, you don't have to be restricted. Tech never stands still, there's always something new to learn, and it's amazing to see something you helped build be used by real users!
