Louise Gibbs - Software Tester

Defending the quality of our software applications since 2013


My name is Louise Gibbs and I currently work as a Senior QA Analyst at MandM Direct. Nothing to do with the sweets (although that would be awesome). MandM Direct are an online fashion retailer, originally selling mostly sportswear. I am involved in the development of the website.

Previously, I worked at Malvern Panalytical where we developed scientific instruments for a variety of industries, most notably pharmaceuticals. I was involved in testing the software used to carry out automated particle imaging and raman spectroscopy to identify particles in a mixed sample.

I graduated from Bangor University in 2013 with a degree in Computer Science for Business. My first job after university was as a software tester for Loyalty Logistix, a company that produced Web, Mobile and Desktop applications that allowed members of the Automotive industry to run Loyalty schemes for customers.

I really enjoy talking about Software Testing. Everyone’s experiences are different, which means that everyone will have different opinions. I want to hear other peoples stories on software testing as I believe this is the best way to learn and develop new ideas. Most importantly, I want my own theories to be challenged as this also helps develop my own opinions further.
