Shining a Light on…Helene McKendry, QA Engineer

After graduating with a BSc in Interactive Multimedia Design from the University of Ulster in 2015,  Helene joined Core Systems in December 2016 and has proved herself to be a highly motivated and valued member of our Core team.


Among her many skills – highly diligent and detail-focused, calm under pressure, dedicated to high quality and possessing a vibrant personality and attitude – Helene works in an Agile development environment with a focus on quality throughout the life-cycle. Daily she implements manual test solutions whilst constantly developing her automated testing skills. Consequently she delivers quality products for our customers in a time-efficient manner.


“What I like about working at Core,” Helene commented, “is that I work with all aspects of technology and I am developing a wide range of skills. Core may be a small company but I feel that I am making a big impact. Plus, here you are not spoon-fed – you have to be innovative and think for yourself, unlike a lot of other tech companies in this marketplace – and that is something I really thrive upon. Also, I really am part of a core team here, and have made so many good friends, which makes such a difference.”
