QE-360 started as an advocacy for Quality Assurance Analysts to transition to Quality Engineers (QEs) – hybrids of QAs and Software Engineers – through QE Is The New QA meetups, speaking engagements, and conferences. QE-360 means being a well-rounded QE – having all the skills to engineer quality into software. Through Quality Engineering, software issues are prevented during the development period, instead of Quality Assurance wherein discrepancies are detected after a significant amount of time is used for coding the features.
After 6 years of community building, the need for QE sourcing became significant, and the need for QE training arose. To fill these growing needs, QE-360 has evolved into a consulting, training, and sourcing services provider focusing on Quality and Development Processes.
QE-360 was founded by Michelle Lagare. With over 15 years of IT industry experience focusing on Quality, she has spent a significant amount of time in building teams, training, setting up or improving testing standards, and developing processes for companies in the Fintech, e-Commerce, communications, lead generation, healthcare and HR Tech industries.
