Interview with Monetha’s QA Engineer | Liudas

Tell us a bit more about your professional background? How did you get into software development?

When I got my first computer almost two decades ago in the year 2000, I was sure that I will be working in this business as a programmer. I spent a lot of time sitting in front of a computer and playing with Turbo Pascal. But during my studies in university I found that breaking software is more fun. We did not have software testing lectures at university, so I started studying it by myself. There weren’t enough of professional testers in software development industry at that time, so I got my first job very quickly. During my career I was working as a scrum master, acting as a product owner, test manager, but testing is what I love the most.

What do you love about your profession?

I like to solve puzzles, and testing is like solving a puzzle. Software testing is not about checking or showing that the software works, developers already know it works, testing is about solving a puzzle, finding out indicators and cases when it breaks or could break.

What is the most important thing for you as a QA engineer?

There are a lot of important things for me but two of them are the most important, first of all working with a strong and professional team and second – solving complex problems. And I am happy that I have both in Monetha.

What brought you in to Monetha? What do you like about the product?

I had the opportunity to test almost everything. Mobile apps, desktop, web, web services, big data, big load, complex integrations with google and facebook… So, how could I miss the opportunity to test application based on blockchain technology? I couldn’t miss the chance to build a new product which will change the way how people buy and sell worldwide.

Any funny/interesting stories that you can share from your time in Monetha?

Although I am working in Monetha just for three months, there were a lot of funny moments. For example, one day Justas informed development team that he will put online camera in front of our tables, because community wants to see how we are working. The funniest thing was that for 3 seconds I thought that maybe he is not joking.

Don’t forget, MVP Update will be released tomorrow.

See you next week with a new interview!
