Hello I'm

Steven Taylor

DevOps/Automation Engineer, Web Developer


About Me

Hello, I’m a Steven, qa engineer and occasional web-developer based just outside of Richmond VA. I have extensive experience with manual, api, automation, performance, and security testing. If I had to pick a favorite type of testing it would probably be a toss up between automation and performance testing.

In addition to testing software, I also love programming. In some respects automation scripting is essentially writing code/programming. I have worked as a developer in the past and still love building websites and applications when opportunities arise. I love learning and working with new technologies.

Chances are if you have a need that doesn't exactly match my past experience, I will have no trouble learning and contributing to your needs. With over 15 years of SDLC experience I bring a wealth of knowledge that will benefit just about any organization. Here are a few languages, frameworks, and skills I have experience with:

  • agile
  • aws
  • bootstrap
  • browserstack
  • css
  • html
  • java
  • javascript
  • jira
  • jmeter
  • jquery
  • lambdatest
  • mysql
  • owasp
  • php
  • postman
  • ruby
  • selenium webdriver
  • sql server
  • wordpress
