Ambasador-it-kontraktIt is high time to present the profile of our another Ambassador – Piotr Guzinski. Read the short interview and check the way he landed the job in IT Kontrakt. Find out why Piotr appreciates our form of cooperation and how he fulfils his ambitions. The right man in the right place!

 Piotr Guzinski is…

…in his professional life, Developer (full stack), IT QA Specialist, Test Automation Engineer, working in the software development market since 1998. As for his private life, he’s married to Anna and have two children, Ula and Dominik. After hours, he devotes his time to his terrarium hobby, playing the guitar, and good literature.

I landed a job with IT Kontrakt…

…thanks to Piotr Grzesiak. Before, we’d worked together in the IT department of a bank. Following his recommendation, I decided to take part in IT Kontrakt’s recruitment process and… this is how it all started. The recruitment process itself comprised of two stages – at the beginning, I underwent a soft skills and language test, and then there was a technical interview, whose purpose was to determine my knowledge and experience. Now I’m working for IT Kontrakt on b2b basis. My work for the current client allows me to operate remotely or on-site at IT Kontrakt’s Katowice branch – the choice of either mode is mine.

 My activity as an expert began…

…in early 2016. During talks with Lucyna Leszka, Director of IT Kontrakt’s Katowice branch, Piotr Grzesiak and I came up with an initiative that would involve a series of meetings in which we wanted to present interesting SQA issues. The idea was met with enthusiasm, and the first meet-up was held just a few weeks later. I envisage the programme of meetings with experts as a long-term activity – there are still many discussion-worthy subjects that I’d like to tackle. In the future, I plan to add some variety to the meetings’ format and adopt the attractive dispute-like approach, i.e. a debate between a sceptic and an enthusiast of a given subject. The authors of the unforgettable TV show “Sonda” – Mr Kurek and Mr Kaminski – were the masters of this formula.

The role of IT Kontrakt Ambassador gives me… 

…a lot of satisfaction, first of all, resulting from the fact that I have an opportunity to share my point of view and experiences with my fellow IT specialists. Meet-ups and other forms of discussion mean an opportunity to find out about extremely interesting solutions applied in companies, so it’s an excellent source of new knowledge. Moreover, I’m always happy to know that the knowledge I pass on can facilitate somebody’s day-to-day work as a tester.

Cooperation with IT Kontrakt is worthwhile because…

…the company attracts high-profile specialists and work in this kind of environment is very motivating. Also, IT Kontrakt offers me an opportunity to work on extremely interesting projects for clients from all over the world.
