Marcus Merrell

RetailMeNot, Inc, USA

A test architect at RetailMeNot, Inc., Marcus Merrell has written UI and API test frameworks for several products since 2001. Marcus is obsessed with code design and holds sacred the philosophy that test frameworks should be approached, developed, and tested just as carefully as the production software they seek to examine. This has led to code that is at once simple and sophisticated “API” for testers which is reusable, interface-agnostic, and universal to any problem.
