"My current role is very interesting. I am currently a test lead for a team that has nine people onshore and nine people offshore. The main roles are to assign work, make sure the testers have no issues and to maintain the high quality of work expected. On non-team related tasks I would have to chase business requirement owners for clarification, interact with developers to ensure a speedy defect fix and liaise with other test teams to ensure we have correct environmental setting and enough test data to ensure testing can continue uninterrupted."
