Welcome Kostas! What will you be doing with us and what is your role?

I will be joining as a technical tester in the TestOps team.

Tell us a bit about your background, what have you done previously in testing?

I originally worked in various IT support roles but switched to programming. In my previous job, I was a consultant at Ericsson where I worked on test automation in telecom/radio. The role was varied, including management of different test cases as well as running various load, stress, and traffic tests, and spending time in lab environments.

What do you find most enjoyable about your field of work?

I have always been interested in the interaction between technology and humans and have found interest in trying to make technology more accessible and secure for users. What attracts me to test automation is the opportunity to secure and isolate a behavior in order to create safer and more predictable systems for users!

Naturally we are also interested in you as a person. Do you have any hobbies or interests you’d like to share?

I think films are best seen in the cinema. And hanging out with friends is never wrong. Another favorite of mine is exploring the city in search of the best pizza, burger, or gelato. Suggestions are always welcome and appreciated! Not to forget, my interest in traditional shaving with a brush and safety razor.

What are you looking forward to the most in the coming year?

To look back and see my footprints in the sand. To become more senior in my role, simply put!

Once again, a very warm welcome to Lemontree!
