What is your role at Mersive, and what do you do?
I am the Manager of Mersive’s Quality Assurance team. I help the team utilize tools and methodologies to make sure our test cases find defects and comply with our companies quality standards. I also evaluate test results against expected results, implement improvements to our processes and if changes are needed we talk about them as a team. Lastly, I manage my team’s day-to-day goals, ensuring they are staying on track with Future Release practices, testing of Bugs, helping our support team and ensuring their professional goals and development are tracked and attained.
What is your team like?
My team is great! They are all from different types of backgrounds and experiences. I truly enjoy having a very diverse group of QA Engineers, it makes work very enjoyable.
How have you grown professionally while working at Mersive?
Yes, I can say I have! I came to this company as a Support Engineer taking customer calls and supporting the product. My old boss saw that I had a knack for QA, and I made the move after a year and never looked back.
What advice do you have for prospective Mersive candidates?
I would say keep an open mind and be able to adjust on the fly. We are still a growing company and with that comes some growing pains. If you can keep your head up and be focused on your job and helping your team and the company, you will make it.
Before working at Mersive, what was the most unusual or interesting job you had?
I used to be a Bouncer at a couple of Denver Nightclubs and Bars. I saw a lot of crazy things, saved some lives, but in the end it was a pretty fun experience. And it definitely provided some funds when I was in college.
Three words to best describe you:
What did you want to be when growing up?
I wanted to be a Marine Biologist, but then when I joined the Marines and had to learn how to swim in the ocean. I decided to change it super quick, after some experiences I had in the ocean while stationed in Okinawa, Japan.
What do you like to do in your spare time?
Hang out with my family, cook, chill and play video games.
What places have you lived?
During my time in the Marines, I lived in:
What is your favorite food?
Man that’s hard! But I will never say no to a big ole Double Cheeseburger.
What is one random fact you could share with us?
When I was in High School, I would kind of do what I wanted and that would get me grounded for weeks at a time. So I would watch the Food Network and make the recipes that I saw the chefs make. This helped me become a pretty good cook and helped me survive my first go at college, the Marines and my 2nd go at college.
