IWC: Tell us a bit more about yourself and your work experience

I am a proud mom and wife, a cheerful person who enjoys music and traveling. I started my professional experience in the IT industry 9 years ago, and my first working experience was exactly here in ⋮IWConnect as a QA engineer. After several working experiences in other companies, I joined ⋮IWConnect for the second time as a Senior QA engineer.

Two years after I started working at ⋮IWConnect I decided to pursue other opportunities, in terms of expertise and technology stacks, explore the world, and I started working for another company.

Seven years since I left ⋮IWConnect and after a couple of job swaps in a few major IT companies in Macedonia, I started feeling “homesick” and slowly realized that ⋮IWConnect is the right place for my professional growth at this stage of my career. The company is growing fast and focuses on people and their professional success while engaging its employees on a lot of interesting and exciting projects.

IWC: What makes your working experience here different than other working experiences that you had?

  • The freedom to express your opinion
  • Employee Appreciation initiatives
  • The culture of supporting each other
  • Opportunities for growth

IWC: How does the company culture influence your everyday work?

It’s been a couple of weeks since I have returned back and I must admit that I’m still getting used to the current company culture – which is slightly different than 7 years ago.

IWC: What do you like the most about your job?

I like that the QA job is comprehensive, and also the importance of QA of SDLC. I consider myself as a Test Developer as opposed to the traditional understanding of QA. This mindset opens a broad set of opportunities and technical challenges and keeps me up to date with the latest IT trends. I also consider myself an advocate for QA processes and principles as well as for positioning QA within organizations.
