How long have you been working at TGI ? What do you do ?
I’m working at TGI since the 8th of January 2018 and i am a test leader.
What are the qualities required to be a test leader ?
You have to be rigorous and curious. And you need to be able to adapt easily and quickly to grasp new applications. But first and foremost, you have to be a good communicator ! It’s not always easy to report anomalies to the development team. Thai aim is not to criticise the work that is done, but to work together to improve the quality of our applications.
What motivates you in your job ?
To find bugs of course !
More seriously, it’s the satisfaction of knowing that the work that is done benefits everybody. By improving our applications’ quality, we offer the best to our customers and our teams internally. Less problems to solve for our customer service team, less rework for our development teams who can concentrate on our softwares’ future evolutions.

It’s OSCAR’s ability to interface and evolve towards new technologies like the one used for the YARD module, (at scale yard management) or TGIBOX (container handling equipments geolocalization).

We are in a company of human scale and we maintain a special relationship with all of our customers.
