Gleb Fominykh, Middle Software Tester

Meet Gleb Fominykh, Middle Software Tester at Exactpro, as he talks about his unexpected career shift and the passion that turned him into a 'detective' of the IT world.

— ‘From petroleum engineer to detective’ – this caption perfectly describes my professional journey. You may ask, how is it connected to software testing? The answer is simple: while working in the oil industry, I always had a keen interest in technology and was really drawn to growing professionally in  the IT field. As it happens, I did get an opportunity for a career transition from a wonderful place – Exactpro.

So, what does the ‘detective’ stand for? In the world of digital technology, a software tester is none other than a sleuth! My job involves solving puzzles that have their roots in software development and looking for bugs hidden in the code.
