Please give a brief description of your job and what it involves

Iím the sole Quality Assurance point of contact in a team of twelve. We are working on a cloud service and my job is to ensure all new features and fixes run smoothly and donít cause any regressions. I also prepare new landscapes on these four IaaS providers: Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, OpenStack. My work requires communicating with colleagues from Germany, Canada, Israel and India on a daily basis.

What key advice would you give to current students who would like to get into a similar job to you?

Be open to new technologies, be very curious and open minded. Be communicative and self-driven.

Why do you think you got this job e.g. what skills/knowledge/experience etc.

I most probably got the job because of my degree in a university which is based outside of Bulgaria and which provides a very different education and experience than Bulgarian universities. I also have a better command of English than most of my colleagues.
