ValiLEAD presents Stefan Alexi

I am a travel- and music enthusiast, originally from Gothenburg that’s lived in Skåne for over 15 years. I like to combine my travels with food, drinks and nature experiences. This has brought me to Puerto Viejo de Talamanca in Costa Rica four times to volunteer and work with animals. I have been a home brewer for over ten years and during this time I have been the president for the Swedish Home Brewer Society for two years and won medals in the Swedish Championship. I also have a huge football interest and moonlight as a judge in the lower divisions. With a lot going on all the time, it would be great if I could slow down sometimes and not have a calendar filled for six months forward.

I work as a test leader at a bigger tech company and have been there for almost three years. The project I’m involved in are responsible for cable-based delivery of software to at home users and the customer service centers around the world. I get to work close with both the developing team and the backend team which contributes to it being an exciting assignment. We work in short release cycles with constant changes in the requirement demands which often means a high pace. Beyond planning and testing new functions and improvements in the app during the sprint, I’m responsible for test of the release candidate to ensure the quality when we release a new addition to the product.
