Who we are and what we do
Who we are and what we do
Testimony is a QA consulting and outsourcing company. We are here to help companies that either lack QAs and don’t want to invest in building a separate team or don’t have the needed capacity to do their testing. Our business strategy is mainly focused on providing early feedback to our clients on how to improve their quality and delivery processes by undertaking the whole testing effort or by building and mentoring the client’s team. We emphasize on direct and open communication and deep understanding of what our partners need.
Formed less than 3 years ago, Testimony has been working mainly on the domestic Bulgarian IT scene with the addition of some projects abroad. As a startup, it has slowly but steadily gained more popularity after overseeing some successful projects. That resulted in hiring more skilled engineers to become what it is today.
Our team consists of specialists in a wide variety of software implementations and platforms. With our team members’ average experience of about 7 years, our advantage lies in knowing exactly what works and what does not, and where your software would have a liability. Whether it’s manual, automated, regression or load testing, we are here to do IT.
Founder and QA Manager of Testimony
With a background in software Quality Assurance for 12 years, he specializes in managing QA teams and processes, while also focusing on the technical areas of testing. Twice has he been the responsible to build a QA team from scratch by introducing a software development lifecycle and also recruiting, mentoring and developing people’s skills and qualities. He has designed and overseen the creation of the architecture of manual and automated tests.
Nikola has been in QA for over 4 years, working with web, mobile and desktop applications, as well as project management and customer liaison. What truly stands out in his work is his exceptional skills in investigating and isolating defects, though he would surely argue that having successfully trained his less-experienced team members is his greatest feat. Nikola excels in functional, performance and load testing of corporate-grade, native iOS and Android applications. He has also worked with various tools and technologies in the field of software for e-commerce, lifestyle and real estate.
Rosie’s importance in the company is undisputed. She is a skillful manual and automation QA engineer, who is always exact and result-oriented, with solid knowledge in Salesforce Commerce Cloud, Hybris and custom CMS using microservices, as well as native applications. She is also known for her emphasis on documenting processes and know-how, up to the point that one company relied entirely on her documentation to rebuild its architecture and train new people. For her 5 years of practice, she has been involved in projects for some of the UK's biggest e-commerce retailers, setting high quality standards where she has been involved.
Given her variety of skills, including both frontend and backend automated testing of web, desktop and mobile software applications, Assena provides Testimony with expertise and versatility. She is well acquainted with the waterfall and agile approaches to software development, with greater experience and emphasized affinity for the latter. She also rocks the BDD world. She has a collective experience of 5 years in software for the payment processing, gambling and lotto industries.
Anatoliy is one of the most experienced members of the company with his more than 10 years in QA. He has a bachelor and a master degree of Computer Systems and Technologies from the Technical University of Sofia. Thanks to his past experience as a team leader and a scrum-master, he has been very valuable in consulting and providing assistance to the other team members. Projects where he has been involved were related to mobile tech, video games, e-commerce, online betting, and others.
Alex has over 9 years in Information technologies and 5 years in Quality Assurance. Coming from a more tech oriented background he managed to be involved in the development and delivery of automated, load and performance tests on various projects throughout his QA career. Even though most of the time he spend in the e-commerce realm, his experience as a system administrator in banking and marketing companies helps him having a wider profile.
Starting as a junior QA without any experience about 4 years ago, Rosen has gradually built his way to become a significant part of a large eCommerce team, involved in various projects on Demandware/Hybris platforms. Apart from becoming proficient in manual, load and automation testing, he was even required to own the whole QA effort in a large e-commerce project for a UK luxury goods brand. That is why it’s always a good decision to rely on him to get things done.
