House of Test


About 🎙

Ever since I was a child, I’ve enjoyed developing things from scratch and testing it. This passion, combined with my fascination for mathematics and technology, led me from construction sites over design offices to Test Engineering. After my Civil Engineering studies in Poland which I completed with a master’s degree, I did my first steps in programming and testing. Civil Engineering and IT testing require extensive analytical skills and the ability to work with complex systems and processes. My technical studies enabled me to evaluate details in systems with many dependencies, helped me to understand applications context and identify potential sources of error in systems before they are released. For me, my job is more than a profession. I enjoy calling everything in question; As a tester, I can do this every day. I love tricky tasks in complex environments. Not only running simple comparisons between „how something works” and „how it should work”, but seeing and testing everything from the user point of view and evaluating it within the big picture – not within a single process. For me, testing is what it needs to transform our users from customers into fans.
