I'm offering professional and comprehensive quality assurance services.
Ticketing life-cycle process improvements, Agile work progress improvements, specification review, automated mobile- and web-application testing are my main activities.

Why am I the right partner for you?

During the past 10 years I've collected extensive experiences by testing different mobile- and web-applications and other systems. I also know the market leader platforms, and therefore the things that needs specific attention during the test planning and execution.
In my career I've used different programming languages, but most actively I work with Java nowadays.

Thanks to my experiences that I've collected so far, I'm able to identify possible problems in the specification phase of the development life-cycle, regarding to them asking questions and able to give some suggestion to solve them in a professional way.

My bug reports are always clear, well specified, so for a developer it's easy to reproduce the issue.

From automation point of view I have excellent knowledge of the Selenium API. I'm using best practices with the best available tool-set:
- Cucumber as the BDD framework
- Page Object Model for maximize the re-usability of the locators and dramatically reduce the maintenance costs of the tests
- Spring framework to manage the object life-cycles
- CI/Jenkins for Continuous Delivery and test running
- Grid infrastructure setup for the smooth and fast test execution
- A cutting edge testing framework that is reliable and able to run 3 times faster the tests

In summary you can get the right person, with the right tool at the right time to overfill your expectations.
