Head of Quality and Reliability
Butch Mayhew is the Head of Quality and Reliability at Tilled, who loves finding more efficient ways to complete tasks. This played out in two major areas within his organization; test strategies that focus on deep exploratory feature testing, and creating test automation frameworks that have identified over 150 defects in his test environments. While he isn't busy automating the next boring task, you can find him at the disc golf course during the day or streaming video games for his kids to watch at night!
Software Development Engineer in Testing (SDET)
I live and work in Belfast in the burgeoning Northern Ireland tech industry. I’ve worked in IT for around 15 years, with about 10 of those in software testing. In my current role I perform manual testing and create test automation using Cypress, Postman and K6 to test a new large and relatively complex greenfield website backended with a bunch of APIs and SQL databases. Outside work I love attending meetups and giving back to the testing community in any way I can. I’m also passionate about neurodiversity, intermittent fasting, health and fitness and lifelong learning!
I am a QA Engineer and API testing enthusiast using Postman, with experience in creating automated testing solutions using Newman and Jenkins. I enjoy improving processes and making great, useful documentation for projects and products. I have also been an onboarding educator for new employees. I look forward to sharing my testing experiences with you.
