Stephen Mounsey, Principal Performance Test Analyst at Callcredit Group, has been announced as the Guest Speaker at the forthcoming TestBoss networking event on 23 July 2015.
Stephen began his career as an IT Service Desk Analyst and ITinc where he was responsible for Incident Management and Resolution. After just over a year he progressed to QA Test Analyst at Callcredit Credit Solutions, followed by a promotion to QA Regression Automation and Technical Services Analyst after two years.
After nearly five years, Stephen progressed to his current role of Principal QA Performance Analyst at Callcredit Information Group. He acts as a Group Performance Test Lead, managing people and projects across multiple sites and locations. Stephen is responsible for the transition of performance testing service to Agile methodology, capacity scalability planning, defining Performance Test Policy and performance tuning. He is a Data Centre Migration Project Lead, presenting at Test gatherings and conferences.
Stephen’s real passion is for sketch noting and visualisation – he can often be found with pens, pencils, post-it notes and pads in hand. Having been with Callcredit for 8 years he has contributed towards many initiatives such as, automation, offshore partnerships, working with co-located project teams, Data Center migration projects and Agile methodology transitions. Stephen said:
“I lead a small internal performance consultancy team at Callcredit and my current focus is working with project teams to enable an early and often performance test approach.
“I have attended a number of the previous TestBoss events and I am delighted to be networking and sharing my knowledge and experience with other Software Testing professionals.”
Rick Hughes, Head of Testing at Corecom Consulting and TestBoss Host, said:
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming Stephen as Guest Speaker. He has presented ‘Performance Testing in an Agile Environment’ at the Leeds Tester Gathering so he is well practiced. He was also a Double Panelist at the UNICOM Agile Next Generation Testing Conference, he is on the Agile and Automation Panel and he is the Organiser of the Callcredit Testing Community Conference – a busy man so we are grateful that he’s squeezed us in to his busy schedule!”
