Testing at OVO our principles

Early in 2018 OVO started a fundamental shift in our testing strategy. We evaluated the market, our technology choices, and where software testing was going. As a progressive company we wanted to be ahead of the current trends, specifically around hiring or training test automation engineers. Instead, it was decided that we would fully embrace exploratory testing, better communication, and allowing our testers to gain as much knowledge as possible to drive decisions.

Our testing strategy is evolving but below I will lay out some of our principles:

A message from our testers:

We are not afraid to challenge the status quo, have tricky conversations and to stand strong for our approach to testing. Doing the right thing is important, but so too is fostering relationships. We carefully choose when to stand and when to compromise on testing. This way we build trust and ensure the best outcome for OVO. We are the experts in testing.
