We're happy to announce that we’ve added another talented member to the Devolutions family: our new Quality Assurance specialist Alexandre Roy. I had the opportunity to chat with Alexandre to learn about his experience and role. Here’s a snapshot of our conversation:
Can you tell me a bit about your work background?
I started working at the age of 12 in my father’s store as a clerk. My first real full-time job was later on with a recycling company. I learned a lot, but decided that it wasn’t the right career choice for me. So, I decided to go back to school, and like a lot of my friends, I studied IT and earned my diploma. That’s the path that led me to Devolutions.
What was it about Devolutions that made you want to work here?
To be honest, I didn’t know a lot about Devolutions before applying to work here, other than what I researched online – which was very positive! However, the moment I arrived here I instantly felt welcome, and the environment is great. David and Maurice interviewed me, and I was instantly sold on being part of the team.
What would you say are your top three strengths at work?
I’d say that I’m a very good team player, and am always looking for ways to help my colleagues. I’m also dedicated and focused on my work, and take it to heart.
What tasks do you carry out in your job, and what are some of the tools that you use?
As a tester on the QA team, I focus on testing apps on multiple platforms, including Mac, iOS, Windows and Android. It’s my job to ensure that everything is implemented and working properly, and I spend a lot of time hunting for bugs and reporting them to our team leader. As for tools, I primarily use VMware virtual machines at this time.
What are your impressions about working here?
It’s great! The team is really solid and experienced, and the work environment is very pleasant and supportive. My colleagues are friendly, helpful, and have made me feel welcome from day one. I was a little nervous being the new guy around such highly skilled IT pros, but they made me feel like part of the family right away!
What goals would you like to achieve at Devolutions?
My main goal is simple: learn as much as I can, so that I can make the biggest contribution to my team and our customers. I really hope to have a long and progressive career here at Devolutions, because this company is headed in the right direction.
On a personal note, what are some of your hobbies and interests?
I’ve always been interested in IT. I also like entertaining people on twitch.tv, and streaming video games.
Please share a few words with our community of IT pros:
