For the past 2 years I have been testing different systems and projects as a part-time job. Most of them were marketing related, some e-shops, web systems related to different events(local tournaments, it-competitions). I have noticed that I am capable of doing this around 2 years ago, while I have been surfing on one of the largest sport sites in my country, I have noticed that it was behaving really strange, then I have contacted support and let them know, in the end I have understood that I have found one huge bug that their employees have missed. I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration which helps me understanding the requirements and the expectations from the business logic that a system should meet. During my study at university I have been taught that it is extremely important to explain issues in details, so everyone could understand what is the problem - in short detailed description of the problem, the actual steps performed while facing it, the expected result and the result that was received is the key to be very good tester. Due to my bachelor's degree I could easily understand different marketing approaches, accounting logic and legal notes. I have really good general knowledge, I am interested in history, geography and market sales. I am also fond of new technologies and try to keep myself informed about the news. I am responsible and communicative. I can test systems manually, I am good at performing black-box testing. Due to my experience before and taking under assistance the fact that I am most of the time online I could say that I know what to expect from a system and you could count on me when it comes to usability testing. As a business administration graduate and a future graduate in project management ( I am having my masters degree now) I understand how important is the system to be working properly, so functional testing is something that I am aware of.
I am a QA tester with good knowledge of software development methodologies, types of testing and bug lifecycle. I have practical experience in testing of small applications (such as calculator) and web-sites (including load testing with Jmeter and Oracle Testing Suite).Moreover, I have basic knowledge of HTML/CSS, SQL and programming (C#). My programmingskills are now being developed as a part of my eucation in National Technical University of Ukraine "Kyiv Polytechnical Institute" on software engineering. In addition, my leel of nglish is profound and I have lots of experience in working (translating and using for studies) with technical documentation in English. Really eager to get more experience in testing :)
