Quality Engineering Lead – Meta, Israel
I’ve been in the field of QA for almost twenty years. As a Medic in the IDF I was leading the integration of new software into army clinics across Israel. After I finished my military service and had about a year of traveling in the east with my then girlfriend (current wife), I began studying my B.sc in CS. Parallel to my studies, I started working as a tester for a small tech company distributed across the US, UK, and Israel. Two years later I was leading their QA team, remotely managing testers in the UK. I’ve spent the following ten or so years jumping around a few Israeli startups, always building up new QA teams and maturing them.
Four and a half years ago I came upon an open QA Lead position at Facebook. Back then I knew that “Facebook has no QA”, so it was clear to me that it must be an interesting position. Since I joined Facebook, I have experienced the most intensive growth of my career. I supported amazing projects in the field of connectivity, working with telecom companies across developing markets in Africa, South America & South East Asia, to bring affordable high speed public wi-fi networks to unconnected and under-served regions and populations. I had to deal with new challenges in multiple disciplines, at a breakneck pace and at a scale few can imagine.
About a year ago I transitioned to supporting Facebook Financial products (now named Meta-Financial-Technologies) and building Meta’s central compliance, Risk and Care platform (Meta-Financial-Integrity). I am truly passionate about Quality and the effect a good QA team can have on the whole organization. On a personal note: I am a family man, married, father to three amazing and adorable agents of minor chaos. I am a huge animal lover, and an overall dork
