I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 6 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

comment Passwords Being Sent in Clear Text Due to Users' Mistake in Typing it in the Username Field
I have noticed a really annoying bug where in a web page I will switch to the password field and start typing before the page finishes loading, then when the page does finish (partway through me typing my password) it will rip the focus away from the password field and back to the default (usually the username field). I wish everyone would make sure their product/web site does not do this.
