Sofia Spials

As Springload's only Test Engineer, Sofia has her work cut out for her. Before joining us, she worked at Inland Revenue and various internet and IT consulting companies in Saint Petersburg, Russia. From implementation of automation artefacts to generating and manipulating vast amounts of test data, Sofia considers the end user in all that she does. Her goal is to make our clients' websites work better, and since she's started, they do.

She has extensive experience in Bugtrackers like Jira and StarTrek, is a master of testing tools Zephyr, ALM, and XMind, and is knowledgable in Java, Python, JS, and much more. Her Master's degree in mechatronics and robotics is pretty impressive too. When Sofia isn't analysing, debugging, and correcting errors, you can find her happily reading comics, or travelling the world. 

Sofia is currently QA performance testing ACC, Kiwibank's DWP, Red Cross NZ, KLIM, Australia India Institute, and Book a Rate.
