Edge Testing Solutions new engineer ‘boosts expertise’

Edge Testing Solutions has appointed senior technical test engineer, Iain Finlayson, to boost expertise at the firms Birmingham Digital Test Hub.

Providing consultancy to evaluate existing testing processes and to improve new software releases, Finlayson is responsible for clients across a number of sectors.

Preparing test cases, he held a senior testing role at AppLabs prior to joining Edge, defecting the management for agile, scrum, waterfall and V model software development, encrypting and unencrypting links, whilst completing end-to-end testing processes.

Finlayson commented: “Edge was the right next step, thanks to its reputation in the software testing field. I wanted to be part of the Digital Test Hub in particular, with its innovative approach, which enables companies and organisations to resource testing from a UK team. In the first few months with Edge, I have enjoyed a much fuller technical testing role than previously.

“The working environment at Edge is very relaxed and positive, and it’s exciting to get hands on with clients that are facing new challenges, such as GDPR compliance and ensuring software quality for Internet of Things devices.”

Brian Ferrie, CEO at Edge, added: “Iain’s appointment to our senior technical team is another step in growing the department to provide a significant knowledge base for junior colleagues to tap into, to become more technically aware, while increasing their experience, in order to offer all of our clients added value throughout the team. 

Edge is set to reach 300 employees by the end of 2017.
