Name: Sathiya Kamalakannan

Job title: Senior Test Consultant

Joined QualityMinds in… September 2020

When I was younger, I wanted to become a… doctor

Education: I did my Bachelor in ceramic engineering. Next possible question from everyone is what am I doing in IT? (Lächeln)  After I completed my engineering degree, I had an opportunity to continue in the IT sector. I chose to start with the IT services company back in India and I was happy to accept the warm welcome. I am very lucky to keep working in that world, trying out different roles and enjoying developments in technology. Every day for the past 11 years I was able to learn different things in the testing world. I am proud to have received my ISTQB Foundation and Advanced certification in testing and test management

Current project: 

I am working as a Test Manager for a client from the automotive sector where I am implementing the test process and managing the testing related activities. I am also helping my colleagues there adopt testing methodologies in the project vision and infrastructure.
