In addition, he explores the features and products, supports regression and releases and expands his knowledge to be able to improve all the ‘everyday stuff’. He takes his self-learning seriously, shares “new-fancy stuff” with others and helps team members grow as individuals.
In the future, Michał wants to become a champion of good testing and provide support to all functions that directly interact with their customers. To achieve that he is allowed and expected to challenge assumptions and suggest diverse ways of working/testing.
