Tell us who you are and what you do in Deegloo.
I am a QA Engineer and my job is to identify issues and ensure the quality of the app before it launches.
What does your typical day look like?
My typical day consists of testing new and old features multiple times, writing automated tests, and communicating with clients and my team.
What made you decide to develop your career in this field?
I think I was always good at finding errors, which is not always a good thing in everyday life, but I was able to channel this quality of mine into finding defects in the applications/software.
What drives you in your work?
I get to learn a lot and it can get challenging when it comes to communication with clients, understanding the project, and the technical side as well. Basically, constant different challenges keep me motivated.
What’s the best part about your position?
I feel that I am getting a true view of a product and also that my tasks are constantly changing.
What don’t you like about your job?
What’s the biggest mistake you’ve made in your career or what ups moment you had?
Not finding a bug on time (after release).
What drives you crazy about your job or your daily activities?
When errors are constantly repeating I need to test the same functionality until it is fixed, which basically means a lot of repetitive work.
Which technology/tech stack do you like the most?
What advice would you give to someone entering this field?
Pay attention to details, learn from the developers’ technical side of the errors you find, and invest in yourself by learning new technologies.
Your favorite person to work with?
Honestly, I don’t have a favorite one, I like to work with everyone on my team equally.
If you could compare your job to one movie or show, what would it be?
It has to be a detective movie, so let’s say, Sherlock Holmes.
If you can choose one song to go along with your job or which would make you be really in the zone while working, what would it be?
Beyonce – Flawless, in order to make everything bugless
