Kamila Gawrońska

Lean QA | Poland

BIO: By education, I am a biomedical engineer, electronics engineer and project manager – a typical full-stack employee. I believe that everyone is able to learn everything, it is a matter of attitude. During my adventure in the IT world, I have had the opportunity to work as quality assurance, business analyst, UX designer, and project manager. It seems that it is time to be a programmer. I gained my experience in research and development projects in the field of construction, automotive, medical and smart city. My skills are confirmed by ISTQB, PSM I, PSPO I, IREB certificates.

For many years I have been sharing my knowledge as part of industry events. I like to question the status quo and lead verbal fencing on arguments supported by facts and hard data – and because of that teams with I work with are either like or hate me.

As a typical girl from the technical university, I like drinking beers in the company of strict minds.
