Hi there! my name is Marie and I currently work as a Principal Test Automation Engineer at News UK within the Product Platforms team. I am responsible for setting up the overall QA strategy and ensuring that we deliver a high quality product to our end users. Part of my role is to also educate everyone about Software Testing and Test Automation so the responsibility of testing is shared across the team.

Previously, I have worked as a Test Automation Consultant having worked with different clients from different industries to help them speed up their testing cycles.

As a woman in tech, I try to encourage more women to join this industry by giving talks such as Software Testing Trends in 2019 and Digital Women in Tech: Intro to Cypress.

I started writing last November 2019 as I wanted to become more active in the testing community and share my knowledge. I try my best to amplify my voice in the hope that I can inspire other women to do the same.

When I'm not working and writing, I like to read, watch netflix, do origami, and look after my 3-year old daughter, who sometimes attends (she sings..) my meetups.
