Interesting thread on hiring Agile Testers

Posted by Mike Longin on November 3, 2009

Thought this was a thread worth following

As I stated in the thread, it is a tough decision to hire developers to fill Agile Tester spots. Actually more to the point, it is tough to fill Agile Tester spots in general You are really looking for someone with good technical skills but with a true passion for testing. When you look at hiring a developer to fill that spot you are going to be getting those technical skills but there are times you will find that the candidate in question does not have the true passion for testing. If this is the case then it is a possibility that the job that they are asked to do will not be up to the needs of the team.
