Inspired Testing appoints new principal consultant and architect
Global software testing and quality assurance company Inspired Testing has appointed Mihai Grigorescu to the position of Principal Consultant & Architect
Grigorescu will be based out of Inspired Testing’s UK office, and oversee the growth of both the SQA consulting arm as well as other areas for the company in the European and United States markets, while bolstering its internal practice and delivering on strategic initiatives for key accounts.
“This is an exciting opportunity to join a forward-thinking company that’s less concerned with red tape, is more customer centric and has a much more suitable entrepreneurial approach to this niche market, as opposed to large corporates,” says Grigorescu.
“Not only are companies facing traditional challenges (ie, digital transformations, agile and DevOps adoptions, AI enablement, etc), but now more than before, the global pandemic has accelerated the move by many towards a more foreseeable, cost-effective, outcome-based model,” he says.
“One of the biggest challenges for software testers and SQA consultancies is how to deliver everything as a service in predictable outputs, ranging from automation to performance to security and RPA, as clients are no longer interested in long-term contracts and monolithic set-ups for their testing organisation, and the Inspired Testing consulting team has the right mindset in addressing these challenges,” Grigorescu continues.
Working with Inspired Testing’s numerous high-profile technology partners is one of the first things on Grigorescu’s agenda, as he seeks to develop and nurture meaningful alliances and partnerships, as well as streamline “as a service and pay per use” subscription commercial models linked to the company’s current and future capabilities.
With more than 15 years of experience in the tech industry and +12 in software testing, Grigorescu is passionate about the software quality assurance, engineering and DevOps disciplines that he has channelled and converted into positive growth for more than 300 client accounts across the globe.
“In my career so far, I’ve been active on both the delivery and the client but also on the partner sides, therefore I’ve seen the industry from all angles and went through a great range of experiences,” he says. “So when I do speak to clients today, it’s from both the business as well as technical point of view, aggregated with practical anecdotal examples, adding more value than simply approaching the client’s context from either one side or the other, as is too often the case.”
