About the presentation

In this talk, we will share insights about how we work at eBay Germany. We will cover topics like team structure, embedded tester model, agile approach, and test strategy, e.g. why we do a lot of exploratory testing and why we don't use automated UI tests that much. We will talk about what model/team setup works for us as a development team and how we are involved early as QA Team. And, also how we support other international domain teams at eBay with testing and automation. The duration of the talk will be around 25-30 minutes and we should plan a lot of time for Q&A.
