Dr. Jamie Atkins, Senior Test Analyst
Name: Dr. Jamie Atkins
Job Title: Senior Test Analyst
My name is Jamie Atkins and I joined Lhasa in 2014 as a Test Analyst. I achieved a BSc in Biochemistry and Genetics in 2005 and a PhD in Plant Genetics and Nematology in 2010, both from the University of Leeds. Since then and before joining Lhasa I have worked in software testing helping to deliver large projects for Cleveland Police, Boots and the NHS.
I enjoy working at Lhasa as my current role combines my interests in science with my chosen career path in IT. The role involves working on new software products from the inception phase through to release as well on new versions of existing software. I work closely with software development, science, account management and product management as well as interacting directly with members. I use both manual and automated testing techniques in this role.
Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters, watching movies and TV shows (predominantly science fiction), and playing as many computer games as my free time will allow. I like to travel and try to go abroad as often as I can.
