James Brundell, Graduate Test Analyst
Name: James Brundell
Job Title: Graduate Test Analyst
My name is James and I joined the Software Testing team in April 2017.
I studied at the University of Sheffield and completed my MChem in Chemistry in 2013. To continue to use my skills, I then joined Boots Contract Manufacturing where I progressed from a Quality Control Analyst testing raw materials and finished products to be the Quality Assurance Complaints Co-ordinator for the Nottingham site, investigating and handling all complaints raised to us by our customers.
I then decided to change my career path and in September 2016 joined the FDM Academy and studied Software Development (Java). At the end of my time there, I stumbled across Lhasa which was the best of both worlds – using my chemistry knowledge and my quality assurance experience, and developing software!
My role at Lhasa as a Test Analyst involves testing software throughout development against our aims and requirements. It has enabled me to continue with my personal development and to get stuck in to delivering the next release of the Nexus Platform along with the rest of my scrum team. I took the ISTQB Certified Tester Foundation Course in September 2017 and aim to expand my knowledge of automated testing techniques in the future.
Outside of work, I enjoy going walking, playing games with friends and listening to music of many styles and genres, although I will always have a preference for rock music!
