This time in the “People in Testing” series, I had the chance to interview José Díaz the creator of the famous software testing conference in Europe, the Agile Testing Days.
Daniel: What is currently your biggest challenge at work?
José: Due to the great job of my colleagues during the last years we are growing extremely fast. The challenge is to find the right people that fit into the company’s culture and are able to work in the innovative projects of our clients.
What do you think is the most important skill software testers should have?
I don’t think that there is only one. It is a combination of a few. In my eyes, you do not need to be the best tester ever to help your team. I think that respect for the work of the people involved in the project and also the ability to be a team member and contributing your individual strengths are very important. The skills should match with the project and the team and therefore may change from project to project.
