It’s true. I’ve been asked to give up my dream job that I’ve loved working for the last 20 or so months.
Instead, I’m now the Director of Engineering for Test Studio and am going to help with delivery of the automation tool I love so much.
Yes, I know. That was a bad trick to play. You’ve been reading my blog and haven’t figured this part of my “humor” yet?
In the new role I’ll be working closely with the teams in Austin and Sofia on planning and execution for future releases. It’s a scary but wonderfully exciting opportunity, and truth be told I had been missing being part of actively building software.
I’m not vanishing from the testing community—that involvement is a critical part of better understanding problems that we can help solve with Test Studio—but the amount and shape of my involvement will change as I move my focus to the teams at Test Studio.
One thing this brings up in a big way: Telerik needs another Evangelist to fill my position. We’re already looking for one, so this means we’ve got a second slot to fill, too!
