StickyMinds – Jennifer Bonine – 7/28/17
Jennifer Bonine: All right, we are back with another virtual interview before our next technical presentation. And Alex, you happen to work for the company giving the next technical presentation.
Alex Martins: That's correct.
Jennifer Bonine: All right. So Alex, in case you haven't seen, works for CA. Alex, tell us a little bit about how did you get to CA? And what's that journey look like for you?
Alex Martins: It's been an interesting journey. I've always been on the other side of the tables. CA, as a software company, as a vendor, I've always been on the other side as the customer—like CA and other companies as well, working for HP Enterprise Services, EDS, Cognizant Technology, and a few other companies. It came to a point where we were really developing a lot of technologies to really bring testing to a different level. When I was talking to CA, I just felt like they had a good portfolio that was really going the direction where I felt testing needed to go, being a practitioner myself.
About nine months ago I joined the software company to try and really start changing the market.
Jennifer Bonine: How interesting for folks out there that are customers right now, seeing that it should make everyone feel good that someone who used to be a customer who lived in their shoes, who had to deal with the pain and the things that keep you up at night is now on the side of helping solve those challenges, right? And coming from that perspective of a been there, done that, and I know what works and doesn't work, and helping inject that into what you guys are doing right now.
