Name: Agata Pozarzycka
Job title: Software Tester
Joined QualityMinds in: 2019
When I was younger, I wanted to become: a vet
Education: I got Master of Arts in Translation Studies at Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. During my last semester I started working as a translator in a German company – provider of business software. My main responsibility was translating user interface and documentation from German into Polish.
After I came back to Warsaw, I was looking for my place on the job market. I was working as a content manager and lease analyst. Finally, I decided I would like to find my luck in the IT world. I started Bachelor studies at the Warsaw School of Information Technology, which I graduated from in 2021.
Current project: I am working as a software tester for a company which is a global provider of reinsurance, primary insurance and insurance-related risk solutions.
Favorite quote: “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”
Hobbies: I really enjoy going for walks and playing with my two dogs – Jack Russell Terrier and Welsh Corgi Pembroke, outdoor and indoor cycling, reading crime stories and watching Netflix while riding on my stationary bike or sitting on the couch.
Fun Fact: My husband and I like cycling and travelling with our dogs and we decided to buy a bicycle trailer for them. Now when we are taking the dogs on a trip, many people are asking us about this trailer and how it is to ride with it. When we are passing by kids, we often hear them shouting “Mommy look! There are two dogs inside!”
