New Test Manager for 2i Testing

It’s Monday morning and we’re off to a cracking start this week as we are joined by the newest member of the team, seasoned Test Manager – Gary Grimes.

A native Geordie, Gary made the trip to Edinburgh to become part of 2i’s growing team and we are glad he did. Gary will be here to use his finance knowledge and management skills to oversee various test activities in a banking environment. With 13 years’ experience in the field, we are sure he will make the perfect fit.

Gary’s life as a Tester:

As many of the Testing community do, following graduation at the University of Sunderland, Gary fell into his first testing role as a Junior Tester. From there, he spent several years working his way up through the ranks within a British bank where he gained important financial services experience.

Following his time at the bank, Gary became an independent test consultant before becoming Test Manager for a multinational security services company. With 13 years in the Software Testing field under his belt, Gary has built up invaluable knowledge and transferable testing aptitude.

Gary’s strong points in the industry:

After years of hands on testing, Gary was able to use his knowledge in this space to progress to into a management position. As a Test Manager, Gary gained impressive skills in stakeholder management, which is a critical component to the successful delivery of any project. Over the years, he also developed his ability to oversee multiple projects and teams which makes him an integral part to his new test team at 2i.  

Gary’s Testing Hot Topics:

Gary has a keen interest in Test Automation and also pays special attention to the developments in Security Testing.
