Helping others grow
I joined GFT in the summer of 2017 as Senior Software Test Engineer to be part of a tests automation team. That didn’t last long and in no time I got the opportunity to prove myself as a Project Manager for the same project and team. I was proud and happy to receive the annual New Starter award (given for people who made the biggest impact soon after joining company) at that time. Although managing a team in new company was a challenge at the beginning, I found many friendly and supportive people eager to help. I kept learning about the people and the organization better and soon was promoted and moved to a new client and project as a Team Lead. Then my career at GFT speeded up, I’ve got bunch of management trainings (including Leader’s Academy) and now I am a Project Head for our new client.
Looking back at almost three years I’ve spent at GFT, I had the opportunity to work with three different projects, clients and teams. Moreover, I run an internal project creating tool (an idea that I came up with) to make it easier to read tests results. Thanks to that, I developed myself as a manager and test automation engineer. I am now perceived as an expert in test automation technologies as well as team management.
As a Project Head I am always trying to do the same as my leaders have done for me at the beginning – help team members grow and reach for new knowledge, positions and development opportunities.
