Wikimedia Quality and Test Engineering Team

The Quality and Test Engineering team is a sub-team of the Developer Experience group within the Wikimedia Foundation. Established in September of 2019, we are working towards improving the overall quality of the software developed by the Foundation as well as broader technical community. Through deliberate improvements to software development practices as well as the test tooling and ecosystems, we look to enable software engineers to deliver the highest quality work possible with the highest degree of confidence.

Key Guiding Principles edit

  • Quality is a cultural trait that must permeate throughout the entire organization and community.
  • Quality Assurance is a process, not a team or person.  The Quality Assurance process touches all aspects of the SDLC.  Quality and Test Engineering are the stewards of that process.
