Team Leader Alexander
Hello, Alex. Tell us a few words about yourself? What do you do for fun?
Hi guys! My name is Alex and I’m from Ukraine. Besides software testing I like watching movies, reading books, ride my bicycle, hiking, and play video games.
How did your testing career start? Do you have any IT background?
I wasn’t an IT specialist in the past, my previous job was an electronic engineer and technician on industrial plants. One day I realised I want to learn and try something new, so software testing was my choice. After completing courses and reading books I discovered a way I can practice software testing from my home - crowd testing! Since than I’m a software tester. I have registered on Test IO in December 2015, so I’ve been a tester 7 years already.
What will TL Alexander be like? What do you think is the most important part of the TL job?
I want to be a fair TL, to every tester, also whiling to help. In my opinion the most important part of TL job is to be sure customers receive high-quality bug reports and at the same time testers in a team should be motivated to dig deeper and explore new bugs in a software.
What advice would you give to the testers who would like to achieve the same results as you?
Just keep testing and learn, I know it can be hard and frustrating when your bug reports are rejected. It shouldn’t be a reason for you to stop testing!
