The “Meet the Tester” series introduces Adina, former professional ballerina currently testing microscope software.

Name: Adina Beer

Job title: Software Tester

Joined QualityMinds in… 2018

When I was younger, I wanted to become a… ballet dancer

Education: after finishing a dance education, I actually worked as a professional classical ballet dancer in the Berlin Opera House. When I reached the peak of my career, I decided to go back to school to study Arts Management. After graduating I took a job as School Programs Manager for a ballet company with attached ballet school in Boston, USA. 7 years later I find myself back in Germany. Being a little worn out of the constant existential and financial struggles in the non-profit world, I was looking for an opportunity to switch into the “profit world” and decided to take the job as an Executive Assistant for one of “The Big Four”. There I first got into direct contact with IT as I was supporting the IT Advisory. Enjoying more and more working in an IT environment as well as looking for further challenges, I was given the opportunity to start my career as a software tester at QualityMinds. And I LOVE it!

Current project: I support the medical field and test the software of surgery microscopes used for tumor, spine, and eye surgeries.

Favorite quote: “If you always do what you’ve always done, you’ll always get what you’ve always got.” (Pat Parelli)

Hobbies: horse riding
