Profile - Andrei Rădulescu 🧑🏼‍💻

House of Test


About 🎙

I am a well-rounded engineer with experience in various projects, from different domains, that allowed me to touch upon a wide range of technologies. I am also very familiar with all the levels of product development, from the concept and proposal stages to post-delivery customer support.

Being used to working in small teams, I’ve gotten the hang of wearing more than one hat. As a Test Manager, I closely monitor the product life cycle, use my in-depth understanding of the product and adjust the extent of the testing strategy. Wearing the tester helm, I’m highly adaptable to the product: I bring in all my past experiences and forge a context visor through which I glance at the piece of software. As a developer, I’m using my high level of creativity to write tailored tools and scripts. When leading teams, I do so by example. I am a skilful negotiator, a fast learner and eager mentor that drives the quality of the products tailored to the end-user needs. I am a team player and I bring value to any engineering team as an avid supporter of debating and brainstorming.

Professional Activity 🤺

2023-Present House of Test GmbH
  Test Engineer
2023.09 - Today Swiss Federal Agency
  Test Manager
  Being a program-level Test Manager I am responsible for driving and supporting the testing activities. Together with my colleagues, we enhance methods and guide teams in implementing contextual practices for quality. We’re facilitating automated testing organization-wide via CI/CD Pipelines in DevSecOps. Attending internal SAFe implementation schooling, I gained insights into pain points and improvement channels for better support. Supporting teams with broad SAFe understanding, we emphasize quality in the implementation process. Given diverse knowledge and technical maturity, I constantly adapt communication. As part of the Testmanagement team, I am also responsible for supporting the supplier release process and improving on quality management and communication between the contracting parties. As this is a governed environment, we also have to keep a constant connection between the development cycle and the regulation of the federal authority, as we are both testers and auditors in this environment.
