Sandra Meyer is a result-oriented Senior Test Manager with a re-markable hands-on-mentality. Based on 10 years testing experience, mainly in testing projects concerning data-intensive applications in finance and logistics, she possesses a wide range of tool and method knowledge.

She is iSTQB Full Advanced certified and was additionally involved in research of methods and standardization for test data managment and model-based testing (e. g. an EU research project, expert groups
iSQI and ASQF) beside her common project work.

"Her strength of purpose, her communication skills and her solution-seeking attitude prove themselves especially in challenging project environments."

Test Management
Her strengths in test management lie in planning and coordination of operational tasks beside the parallel implementation of a professionalized test procedure. She has already established test processes several times in running testing projects with an optimized testing procedure and introduced various tools and sub-processes (e. g. change management). Her modified test process were always planned and implemented with great importance to the test performance and an ideal integration of other involved areas such as business departments, architecture and development.

Test Data Management
Her strengths in test data management lie in the implementation of high-performance, audit-proof provisioning processes as well as in the functional and test-methodical optimization of test data design. For example, she developed and established a test data design tool and generator, a test data anonymization process and developed a program for model-based generation of test data. As part of her work in the iSQI or ASQF special interest group „Test Data Management“, she contributed to the standardization of test data management.

Test Automation
Her strengths in test automation include backend and interface test automation and the development of test automation frameworks, wrappers, and other test tools. She worked e. g. on the development of a Model Based Testing Tool for generating test cases from abstract test cases and requirements modeled in UML. As part of her work in the special interest group for test data management, she also developed a program for the model-based generation of test data.

"In der Zeit von Juli 2013 bis Juli 2014 arbeiteten Frau Meyer und ich gemeinsam an der Neuentwicklung eines Systems zur Stammdaten- & Kundenverwaltung für einen Finanzdienstleister im Großraum München. Durch ihre damalige Rolle als Quality Engineer und meinen Einsatz als Application Engineer waren unsere hauptsächlichen Schnittpunkte die Vor- & Nachbereitung der durch sie verifizierten Software-Releases sowie der Ergebnisse, die diese nach einem Release in unterschiedlichen Umgebungen und Konfigurationen zeigten.

Unsere Zusammenarbeit war hierbei zu jeder Zeit ausgesprochen gut und ich bewundere bis heute ihren Scharfsinn sowie ihre ausgeprägte Fähigkeit Problematiken und Zusammenhänge schnell zu erkennen, analysieren & entsprechende Lösungsansätze vorzuschlagen. Dies ist eine Fähigkeit, welche meiner Meinung nach nie genug am Markt vertreten sein kann und die mir bei Frau Meyer bis heute in guter Erinnerung geblieben ist.

Auch auf persönlicher Ebene war unsere Zusammenarbeit immer ausgezeichnet. Frau Meyer ist eine grundehrliche Person, die sich nicht scheut Ihre Meinung klar auszudrücken und zur Geltung zu bringen. Auch dies ist eine Charaktereigenschaft die ich im täglichen Berufsleben sehr schätze, da Probleme offen und direkt angesprochen werden müssen um überhaupt mit der Lösungsfindung beginnen zu können.

Abschließend kann ich nur sagen, dass ich die Zeit, die ich mit Fr. Meyer arbeiten durfte uneingeschränkt genossen habe und Sie für den Fall, dass ich jemals in der Situation bin einen externen Quality Manager einzustellen, sie die erste wäre, die ich anrufen würde."
