Stephen Townshend

Stephen is a software performance specialist based in Auckland, New Zealand. Performance is about more than just testing – performance risk is business risk. Stephen’s view is that his job is to identify, prioritise, and manage performance risk in a way which is appropriate to each customer’s unique situation. This allows us to focus on what matters to the business the most, first.

He specialises in the two ends of an engagement – the risk assessment and strategy up front, and the investigation and diagnosis of issues in production or during performance testing.

Stephen is also a professionally trained actor for theatre and film which coincidentally makes him an expert at both performance and performance.
