Nikolay Avramov

Software Developer in Test | Team Lead

Automate The Planet, Bulgaria


Developer in Test at Automate The Planet, Team Lead, and a lecturer in the Telerik Academy Alpha QA program. For the past 8 years, he worked as a Quality Assurance Engineer in Telerik (later acquired by Progress software). He started his career in the field from ground zero- from taking part in the Telerik Academy to becoming a Principal QA Engineer/Ninja that is at the heart of any innovation or automation initiative. Through his work, he has developed and integrated multiple custom frameworks and tools used across the entire company. To name a few- a custom Load and Performance Testing Framework; System Testing Framework; Web Service Testing Framework; Visual Verification Framework; and many other productivity tools that assured the highest quality of all web and business assets of the company. He found his true passion in Automation while looking for a ‘weapon’ to fight the boring, non-productive daily tasks that a QA faces. By reducing the manual repeatable jobs, he believes that we can make the world a better place, full of happy and productive people that are ready to tackle the next challenging task, instead of the next pile of test scenarios to cover by hand. He is a passionate technology geek and automation specialist that strives to implement optimizations and achieve high-quality standards in any aspect of life.
