What does a typical workday look like to you?

My workday starts with a daily stand up with the project team. Then I start today's test activities such as writing test cases or participating in design workshops. My role these workshops is to participate from a test perspective. There are often several meetings during the day, it can be planning or other work meetings. In addition, I work with test planning for partial deliveries and revise the test strategy for the project. I often end the day by writing a to-do list for tomorrow.

Which technologies do you work with?

I don't really know if I can call it technologies, but there are several tools to streamline work. Teams for communication, it has been used frequently during the pandemic. In addition, I use JIRA which is a project and case management system where you can document everything from requirements, use cases to test cases, prioritize and follow up various cases using scrum boards. I also use it for documentation. Then of course I also use Microsoft Office products.

Do you have a favorite technology?

Yes, if I have to choose one, I have to say JIRA because it's so easy to use.

Have you taken any certifications recently?

I have ISTQB (International Software Testing Qualifications Board) certification, it is almost always a requirement to be able to take on work as a tester/test leader. I have recently certified in IREB (International Requirements Engineering Board) within claims management, because tests and requirements are mutually dependent.

What drives you at work and in your role, what's fun?

For me, testing is about understanding how the system should be used based on the requirements, planning how to test it and then see if it meets the requirements. It's extra fun when you manage to find the bugs that make the whole system crash.

What is the best thing about working in Cegal?

That's easy to answer - the colleagues are definitely the best thing about working in Cegal!


What is your superpower?

My superpower is definitely to have good structure. I thrive when it's neat around me and I feel best then too. In my role as test leader, it is also required that I have an overview and structure so that I have control over the work the team and I do.

What is your favorite quote?

"Treat others the way you want others to treat you!"

Who would you take with you to a desert island?

My family of course - they mean everything to me!

Is there anything else we should know about you?

I like to travel and discover new places. Everything from discovering a city to beautiful nature.

I love my house that we built a few years ago. Apart from the house itself, I thrive in my garden which only gets nicer and nicer every year. The garden is decorated with roses in different colors and a Japanese cherry tree. Other favorites are peony and autumn anemone. I really love flowers and it makes me happy to look at them. Inside the house I have a bunch of geraniums. In the picture below, you see me in action when I'm planting a flower bed in the garden.🌺
