Are You Ready for a Senior Role?

What do senior testers even do? Are we just really good at testing, or is there something else that sets us apart?

  • "I don't know if I'm ready for a senior role."
  • "What is involved in being a senior?"
  • "Will they even consider me if I apply?"

Moving from being an individual contributor to peer leadership in a senior role can feel like a huge leap--especially when it's not often well defined as to your new responsibilities. It's not just about experience and years on the job--it's a mindset shift.

Jenny Bramble takes a step back from formal job descriptions to talk about what she looks for in rising senior testers including how we approach assessing risk, how we work to empower and lead others, and how our application of test theory changes as we mature in our roles. You'll leave this talk with a clearer picture on what senior testers are often asked to do and how we can start building a senior mindset as early as possible in our careers.
