Seeking advice on onboarding a new tester remotely.
In some weeks a new tester will join our cross-functional team. Currently, I am the only tester there and will be the main contact for the new colleague. To help to get the tester started, make her familiar with our tools, processes, environment, and quirks.
Maybe also some mentoring, as I do have a bit more experience (whatever that may mean).
I want to be helpful and supportive but not a helicopter colleague. But where to draw the line?
Are there any tips from people who started their job remotely? What did you like the most and what didn’t you like at all?
Or if you’d onboarded people, are there activities you are doing always and others you gave up doing?
