Who I am and What I do

Dawn Jardine

I am a Quality Assurance professional with over 15 years experience in QA, including 10 years leading Agile QA teams.

My prior experience and client base spans a diverse set of industries and projects, from small software development firms, medium-sized digital agencies, to large Canadian and global corporations.

I continue to work in the hands-on side of QA, supporting the DevOps team through release support and continuous delivery. I enjoy rolling up my sleeves as well as planning and implementing automation strategies for clients.

As an Agile enthusiast, I lead the transformation of teams from waterfall to Agile as well as coach existing QA teams. Using the Scrum framework, I lead teams to embrace newer forms of testing approaches, such as exploratory testing and pair testing.

I’m passionate about quality process, women in technology and am actively involved in QA meetups and conferences. I’ve been a speaker for StarWest and Star Canada and recently facilitated the first Women Who Test, Toronto Chapter event at CaseWare International.

“Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.”  Steve Jobs
