We are very pleased to announce that Ricardo Silva has joined q-leap’s team as a Test Manager!
With more than five years’ experience in Software testing, Ricardo has worked in the field of Telecom since the very first day. Experienced Test Manager and End-to-end Test Engineer, Ricardo is able to proficiently deliver Performance and System Integration Testing, as well as User Acceptance and Automation Testing.
His previous experiences managing tests in the field of Telecom, allows him leading test projects from the early phases until the latest test activities. Ricardo’s previous work environments were internationally collaborative and constantly changing, where he has learned to be highly adaptive in both teamwork and individual skills and included Agile & Scrum methodologies.
As the question what makes you passionate about testing, Ricardo says:
There is a mentality challenge that comes from doing what we do, the mindset of a test engineer or test manager is a gift which is not always present in other departments, because of our questioning nature. My passion comes from the ability to think apart from others, to communicate these differences, and to establish to everyone that the final aim is common to all, even if with a different mindset. After all we all aim for a greater work product, a greater process, a greater self.
At q-leap, we’re very happy to welcome Ricardo in our Team. On top of previous successes at managing test projects and at improving test processes in the companies he worked for, his strong knowledge of non-functional testing areas such as performance testing is a huge added value to the q-leap testing & quality assurance team.
Welcome to the team Ricardo!
