Currently QA manager at NumeriQ a division of Quebecor, software quality assurance has accounted for 16 years of her 25 year IT career.
From stumbling into QA in 2003 when a team needed someone who could navigate in a mainframe system in order to compare the behaviour with their new web-based application, Julie has experienced the transition of the QA role from “police” to quality coach to the delivery teams. Through the years her career has also touched upon many domains such as e-commerce, banking systems, mobile applications and discovering the world of residential home automation.
