Quality and Test Engineering
Defining the life-cycle of testing, improving the reliability of code through more efficient and targeted testing practices, and driving better software architecture and design.
The Quality and Test Engineering team is a sub-team of the Engineering Productivity 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
- 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. The Quality and Test Engineering team plays a role in the definition and execution of that process.
