Oleksandr Metelytsia

Test Automation Leader, SoftServe

Oleksandr is a Test Automation Leader at SoftServe with 8+ years of experience. He’s a proficient speaker who conquered the stages of QA IT weekend Ukraine, QMO conference, TA Hub, UkrainQA. He enjoys the fact that ATQA is the intersection point of testing, programming and devops, thus, the number of different tasks is endless. Btw, critical mindset forces him to look for bugs in everything, so why not to get paid for it 😉 Apart from the job (free time is kind of a dream, but anyway) Oleksandr is keen on travelling, meanwhile visiting the highest points, and learning German. Also he likes games like table tennis and “What, Where, When”. So, can we have a game? 🙂 more

Taras Oleksyn

Intermediate Test Automation Engineer, SoftServe

Змалку цікавився програмуванням та комп'ютерними технологіями, аж поки у зрілому віці не натрапив на автоматизацію тестування, у що безмежно закохався. По дорозі в автоматизацію встиг отримати ступінь кандидата економічних наук та цілу низку інших важливих життєвих навиків. Вільний від праці час присвячую саморозвитку, скелелазінню, слеклайну, музиці та велосипеду. Експерт ІТ-академії, ментор та незмінний апологет автоматизації. На практиці використовую гнучкі, продумані та естетично красиві рішення. more
