As Quality Assurance Manager, Melinda Caric makes sure EnergyHub's Mercury platform is running smoothly. We sat down with her to talk about her favorite travel destinations, why she loves looking for bugs, and the challenges of getting cats to pose for photos.
Kat: Your title is Quality Assurance Manager. What do you actually do?
Melinda: I'm responsible for testing the EnergyHub platform and making sure it actually does what it's supposed to do - that covers everything from account setup and provisioning devices to ensuring that demand response events execute properly from start to finish.
The wide range of products and services we offer means there's a lot of variety in what I'm testing so I never get bored.
Kat: Beyond travel, what do you do when you're not at work?
Melinda: I'm in a few book clubs so I spend a good deal of my free time reading and attending book related events. I'm also a gamer, a museumgoer, a standup comedy fan, and I am constantly trying to convince my cat to look at the camera (with mixed results).
