Software Engineer II, USAA
Adrianne Mallett has been a software engineer at USAA since 2018, working on front-end and back-end. When developing a large project in 2019, her team discovered mutation testing and promptly fell in love after one demo. The team realized how helpful mutation testing was to check the quality of their work and prepare for release. Adrianne’s team now includes mutation testing in all applications. Adrianne champions mutation testing as something worth including in the holistic assessment of testing, quality and production readiness. In 2020, Adrianne began technical teaching outside of work including Dallas Reacts Meetup, learning events organized by the React Podcast Discord Server (where Adrianne is a server moderator) and Some Antics Dev Twitch streaming channel. Adrianne’s passions include automated software testing, digital accessibility, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Paired Programming, Developer Community and diversity in tech. Her newest pastimes are ukulele and training cats.
