Our approach is to embed specialized quality engineers directly into application development teams. With this approach, we build cross-functional teams which have all the necessary skills and distinct specializations within each team, as we believe that this setup provides the highest efficiency, quality and speed. In such teams, a developer and a quality engineer work on a feature together. That way, when a developer completes the feature, it is already covered by automated tests.
When we engage with clients, we start by analyzing their existing processes and technical approach. This analysis helps us write personalized, strategic and tactical improvement plans. We then embed quality engineers into development teams and begin improving the quality of products, or enhance efficiency by automating existing manual test cases. With this approach, our client teams are hands-on and learn quickly, which helps spread the right culture, skills and processes across the organization.
