Don O‘Connell

Founder/Owner
Shasta QA Since 2002

Meet Don

Don founded Shasta QA in 2002. After spending ten years working at software companies in the San Francisco Bay Area – mostly in quality assurance roles – Don relocated his family 200 miles north where he and his wife Michelle could raise their five children in a close-knit, rural community. Previously, Don was a QA Director at Geoworks (think operating systems, smart phones, PDAs) and CommerceOne (B2B ecommerce). By tapping into his passion for building elite QA teams and running well-managed projects, and by leveraging his experience working with large companies and teams both nationally and internationally, Don created Shasta QA’s cut-above testing methodologies. In addition to providing a work environment where his team and clients can succeed, Don strives to promote rural American job growth.
