Summary:

I'm a Quality Assurance Engineer with 7+ years of work experience on a multi-million project for Data Backup and Recovery. I’ve got successful work experience on the last support tier, which gives me customer-oriented thinking and a good understanding of business logic. I apply my passion for automation to the SOAK testing. If I have a spare minute, I spend it analyzing possible security issues or performing ad-hoc investigation trying to find non-effective product parts. I saw a lot of critical security issues during my work, so I joined a small security project to help people make this world more secure.
