Shane Parkinson, former Head of Software Engineering at News Ltd and more recently Head of Delivery at Attribute Consulting, has joined as the new Head of Testing at luvo Testing. 

The newly created role sees Parkinson overseeing all aspects of software testing from a strategic level. He brings over 30 years of software development and quality assurance experience and will initially be spending his time adding his knowledge to the luvo QA Playbook. 

“Every project, whether software development or not, should have quality assurance baked into their delivery. Software development has many different delivery methodologies, each with different approaches and we need to apply QA principles and practices with the same agility we expect from development teams, moving quickly and with purpose, this playbook allows us to do that,” says Parkinson. 

“Companies have a real opportunity to reshape how they think about software development and delivery at an organisational level, and how quality and software testing fits within the end-to-end delivery cycle. I was inspired by luvo Testing’s unwavering focus on delivery where quality and integrity are at the heart of everything they do.” 

“There’s so much opportunity for Shane in this role and he’s the perfect fit for us as an organisation. luvo Testing currently works with some huge companies across Australia, and we are looking to significantly increase this reach over the next few years. There is an ever-increasing focus on the customer experience and their data security, and now is the perfect time to raise the bar on the overall quality of what our clients deliver,” says Gary Brookes, Co-Founder and Director, luvo Testing.
