Vladimir Varnakov, Senior QA Engineer

Today, Vladimir Varnakov, Senior QA Engineer at Exactpro, will talk about the various software testing tasks he gets to solve and his pursuit of professional growth and learning new things.

I joined Exactpro back in the summer of 2014. I had no previous experience in software testing. On my first project, I focused on testing various components of a trading platform. Then, I worked and am still working on a project for testing a market surveillance system. 

Vladimir Varnakov, Senior QA EngineerIn my work, I have to deal with quite different tasks based on the project needs: creating test scripts, analysing requirements, configuring test environments and test tools, performing manual and automated tests, automating various processes, and much more.

The tasks I enjoy most are those that make me learn new things. Over the last year, I have thoroughly studied application containerization (Docker, Kubernetes) and learned a lot about cloud infrastructures (Amazon Web Services).

I enjoy spending my free time with my family – going for walks, playing board games, visiting interesting places and events.
