Louise Gibbs - Software Tester

Defending the quality of our software applications since 2013


My name is Louise Gibbs and I current work as a Senior QA Analyst at MandM Direct. Nothing to do with the sweets (that would be awesome). MandM Direct are an online retailer, originally selling mostly sports products but have now included fashion products as well. 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.
