Speaker: Maryam Umar

Head Of Quality @thoughtmachine

I work in London as Head of QA of a Fintech firm. I started my career thirteen years ago as a QA test engineer in the finance and mobile industry. After transitioning to the eCommerce sector, I performed QA in various capacities for online restaurant and travel services. I continue to work in QA as a manager now with special focus on sustainable delivery practices. In addition to this, I have been a keen advocate of creating and sustaining diverse teams. As I have transitioned in my career, I have found that creating teams which work well together is more challenging than the actual project(s) to be delivered by the team. I pay special attention to team dynamics and ensuring engineers are in roles which give them a sense of purpose. I have also been speaking at schools and universities to educate students about what the industry has to offer and what a creative space the technology sector can be.
