“Roman is a first-class QA Engineer who really knows is stuff and was a great asset to have on my team. His test plans were always thorough and very well thought out, from the highest-level perspective down to the smallest details. With Roman on my team, I could trust that if my code passed QA, it was ready to roll to the live site. Plus, with Roman’s automation skills, I could have the confidence that my code would continue to be tested regularly. If I had the chance, I would definitely work with Roman again.”

“While working with Roman, I was quickly impressed with his work ethic, results-oriented attitude and, most importantly, his passion for going beyond simply what needed to be done. Roman did both what needed to be done and what *should* be done – even if the latter meant extra long hours. He had a desire to show his full range of capabilities while also looking to expand his opportunities and abilities and not to stop growing and evolving. He was an excellent hire and I am proud to have had him as a key employee during my QA Directorship time at PayPal.”

Cameron Bigger, Director, Quality Engineering (SQA), PayPal

Sr. QA Engineer

Andale, Inc

“Roman was a stellar QA engineer and was the QA department during the early days of Andale. He setup processes, automation and hired others from his network into the company. Roman was passionate about quality, so work was never work for hire. There were times that he would work and sleep at the office for days, but he was able to do it with a smile because he really loved his job. I recommend him wholeheartedly and I see him having a great career. I do hope I can work with him in the future.”
