I am currently a QA lead at Nike, leading a team of 4 in manual and automated testing efforts.

Prior to Nike, I was at Webtrends for 2+ years, and prior to that was at Microsoft for 13 years. During my time at Microsoft my responsibilities evolved from test planning and manual testing on various projects to --> writing automation and overseeing manual testing efforts from vendors to --> Developing automation tools and processes for the Windows Live organization including a web UI automation framework and a test result reporting platform as well as other smaller tools. At Webtrends I was the most senior automation engineer and was responsible for creating and executing on an automation plan for the company. We went from no automation to significant coverage via UI automation for both of our legacy products as well as near 100% web service automation for one of our new products. In addition, I created performance test suites for 3 products and was involved in hiring 5 additional developers in test for the company.

You may want to include information about what sort of tests you are running, what tool you are using to execute them, etc.

comment Is there load/stress testing software that can be used for Ajax calls?
As user246 stated, they are just HTTP requests initiated by JavaScript. You can use a tool like fiddler, httpwatch or firebug's network tab to view the requests that get sent and then re-create those requests in jmeter or whatever tool you want to use.

Are you talking about using these in the hiring process before extending an offer?

comment Does anyone know of an automation tool that will perform actions on sending or receiving of an email?
Yep, you should definitely be able to do this under a CI server, you can either use SMTP (may be able to use the one your IT department already uses, if that is what they use) or you can go the route of using a gmail account, instructions in my first comment's link.

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Do the e-mails need to be sent from a certain domain, or could you use a free e-mail such as gmail like in the answer I linked to? Can you give a bit more context about the scenario you want to automate? What is the goal of the automation?
