Hi and welcome to The Social Tester.

My name is Rob Lambert.

This website is no longer actively contributed to, but I’ve kept it here, along with all of the blog posts, as people are still reading them. Yay. That’s nice. 

I spent around 14+ years as a tester building amazing teams and products, and now I help other companies with their management and agile implementations. 

I’m maybe best known for creating The Tester Types that you see so many people using as Avatars and putting stickers all over their laptops. I’m proud of that. 

I now blog about management and tech leadership at Cultivated Management.


If you’re a tester and looking for some inspiration then my three main books will be right up your street:

1. Remaining Relevant and Employable

2. The Social Tester – the best of this blog and more!

3. Thrive as a Tester – a guide to getting the most from your career as a tester

You can read more articles and freebies on my Resources page over at my new home — > Cultivated Management

With thanks and gratitude.
