House of Test


About 🎙

I am a Linguist and Software Test Engineer with a degree in Near Eastern Studies – Arabic and Islamic Studies, specializing in Modern Standard Arabic and the Egyptian dialect, from the University of Vienna and a degree in MAS Bank Management from the Corvinus University of Budapest. I have accumulated five years of professional experience across diverse industries in Serbia, Austria, Switzerland, and Oman. My background includes tourism, language teaching, interpretation, career counseling, and research in asylum, forced migration, and diplomacy at the United Nations before transitioning to IT to drive innovation.

As a Software Test Engineer, I possess a wide array of skills, and although my entry into the field was partly coincidental, I now cannot envision myself in any other profession. I accepted my first IT project as a Test Engineer in Zurich, and currently, I reside in Central Switzerland.

In my leisure time, I enjoy motorcycle tours in the Alps, hiking, and connecting with friends and family internationally. I am passionate about exploring the world and engaging in conversations with new people, as I believe everyone has valuable knowledge to share and deserves to be heard and understood.
