Profile

Hello reader! Just in case you have missed it, my name is Andrea and I am currently living in Belgrade, Serbia but I would be delighted to jump over the geographical barrier and connect with people from all over the globe. I consider myself to be a very communicative and enthusiastic person who loves continuous learning and beating new challenges. Some of my hobbies are traveling, exploring new things (within my own city as much as across the world), meeting new people and finding out their stories, reading books and I am a very passionate video gamer (that's the part of my life that got me interested in IT industry). 

As for the IT industry, I have interests and have been working in a lot of its sectors because it is all connected, and it helps me understand the teams with which I am working and their positions and bridge the connection between different teams in order to find the best solution for contributing  and improving the product we are working on. 

What am I searching for in a company?

I am looking for stable 40h a week job, within the company with a healthy environment where people are communicating all problems with each other and helping each other to solve them and expend the lines of our knowledge. My focus at this moment is learning Automation QA and BASH scripting but since that is something I was doing in my free time and it isn't in the description of my current work position which is Manual QA tester I don't expect to get there right away.
