Roxane is a rising tech star with 3 years of experience as a software tester. While she originally studied historical languages, she discovered her passion for IT and found that her diverse background helped her adapt quickly and excel in her role. She has worked hard to build her technical skills through certifications and courses.
At her current company delaware, she started as a test consultant and quickly gained a reputation for having a keen eye for quality. She ensures that products deliver the best possible experience for users by facilitating communication between teams, organizing testing workflows, and arguing for delays in releases if needed.
Roxane believes quality should be prioritized over speed in software development. This starts with identifying potential risks early in the design process to build a solid foundation. She is dedicated to staying up-to-date with the latest technologies so she can continue delivering high-quality solutions for clients.
Roxane also advocates for diversity and inclusion in the tech industry. While she has seen lower ratios of women in IT, she has been inspired by brilliant female colleagues. However, she feels some women do not get the recognition they deserve. Roxane is committed to being a positive influence for other women interested in tech careers. She has taken on a ‘buddy’ role to help build confidence in a new female tester on her team.
Roxane’s passion for promoting diversity in male-dominated industries reflects her academic background. For her thesis, she explored how women used Latin literature to assert themselves in a male-dominated world. Her passion for technology and commitment to learning enable her to make a positive impact in her current role. She is eager to continue inspiring and empowering other women in their careers.
