A bespoke software development consultancy has welcomed a new Lead Test Engineer to its Newcastle headquarters.
Originally from Dumfriesshire in Scotland, Wullie Trimble, 40, has taken up the role, which marks an expansion to Scott Logic’s team of software testers, after taking redundancy from his previous post at Hewlett Packard in North Tyneside.
Wullie, who now lives near Chester le Street in County Durham, has broad experience in both software testing and consultancy, after graduating from Strathclyde University with a degree in Chemistry.
He explained: “After a brief career as an industrial chemist in the manufacturing industry, I was offered a relocation package to move to the North East and my first IT role was as a systems tester. It was a six-month contract that said no experience was required, so I thought I’d go for it, and here I am 16 years later.”
Wullie has found an enduring interest in the IT world and in recent years, software testing has become more of a focus for him. He’s now keen to develop further as a leader as Scott Logic continues to grow.
Scott Logic’s Head of Development in Newcastle Rob Newsome added: “It‘s great to welcome another talented individual to our software consultancy team, and in particular to be expanding our test engineering community.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Wullie and seeing him contribute his expertise to our clients’ projects.”
