In a scene from Star Wars that didn’t make it into the final version, Yoda told Luke: “Too many great QA Specialists you cannot have”.
OK, fine — we made that up. But you know what? It’s definitely something Yoda could have said because it’s very wise. And today, I’m pleased to demonstrate just how much we’ve taken this advice to heart by introducing you to another new, great QA Specialist here at Devolutions: please say hello to Michel Perreault!
Recently, I had the chance to chat with Michel and learn more about his experiences, interests and goals. Here’s a look at our conversation:
Can you tell me a bit about your background?
I was born and went to school in Joliette, which is about 50 kilometers or 30 miles Northeast of Montreal. After working for a little while in a cyber café, I moved to Laval and earned a diploma in networking. During that time, I worked in a few IT and telecom-related roles, and then joined the Devolutions team.
What would you say is your biggest achievement?
Professionally, I would say joining the Devolutions team. I really wanted to work here. Personally, I would say that buying a house is my biggest achievement.
What was it about Devolutions that made you want to work here?
I would say the great team, the amazing atmosphere, and all the advantages that are offered here.
What would you say are your top three strengths at work?
I am patient and can focus on a problem for a long time without getting frustrated or exhausted. I also work well on teams, and I am very persistent when it comes to discovering the root cause or causes of various issues.
What tasks do you carry out in your job, and what are some of the tools you use?
Right now, I focus on finding bugs in different Devolutions products. In addition to our products, I use Jira and Atlassian. I also regularly use screenshot and recording utilities.
What is your impression of working here?
It is really great! In my honest opinion, Devolutions is clearly one of the top employers in the area.
What goals would you like to achieve at Devolutions?
I would like to learn more about aspects related to software development, especially the background processes.
On a personal note, what are some of your hobbies and interests?
I like to read, play video games, and eat! I also like most kinds of music.
