Inside Softbinator - A short Inside Story from Andrei Cătălin Dinică

"Hello there! My name is Andrei and I’m one of the QA guys (and girls) from Softbinator. Today I’d like to share with you my definition of working in a cool and healthy environment (so far, so good!).

Before being a Softbinator guy, I’ve been working in the video-game industry as a tester and by comparison, my experience there was mediocre. Don’t get me wrong, I love playing video games and I was assigned to one of my favorite games but unfortunately, other things were lacking.

One of the biggest issues I found was the interaction with the developers, which was close to none.

Here at Softbinator, my colleagues are warm people and they have been eager to help me even if I didn’t have a lot of experience in Software Testing.

Everything changed. I started getting more and more curious on how everything was built, I was continuously syncing with the developers and I felt more as an equal team member, getting the same plaudits if the project was progressing well, or the same amount of “hate” if we weren’t doing a good job.

Additionally, Softbinator helped me gain a lot of experience during this 1 year and almost 4 months since I’ve been here, and the most important thing was that they helped me in completing ISTQB Foundation Level Tester Certificate.

I can say that this year and a half I’ve been under the Softbinator spell and this “wizard” helped me jump higher and build a new, improved version of who I am. I’m grateful for being here. I plan to be a Softbinator for as long as possible, creating a strong foundation for my career. Thank you, guys!"
