Helen Baker

Quality Assurance Director, Sage

Helen Baker – Biography

Helen has forged a 20-year career at the UK’s only FTSE 100 tech company, Sage, that has seen her head from customer service into technical writing, then onto team management and now to leading a 100-strong Quality Assurance team. Helen is openly gay, and was openly non-technical in her early career, and the challenges she has faced in a male-dominated environment have inspired her to support local groups and schools to help young women learn more about STEM careers and reach their potential.
