Hi, my name is Patrick Döring and I am a passionate software tester since 2008 and a chief architect since 2019. With an extensive knowledge of IT architectures and software testing methodologies, I have been able to successfully manage numerous IT quality projects and to implement effective automation frameworks. In my software testing career, I worked for companies from different industries such as Eurolog, Capgemini (Sogeti), MaibornWolff and Pro7. In different agile projects I gained strong knowledge in different areas of software testing.
I was always responsible for the test management, manual and automated testing using technologies/ software such as Appium, Selenium Box, Selenium 3/4/Zalenium, Selenoid, Cucumber, Serenity-BDD, Java, JUnit, TestNG and QF-Test.
Currently, I am working as a chief architect and portfolio manager for test automation. Besides the technical leadership I am responsible in mentoring and growing my colleagues to help them improving their automation testing skills.
It has always been a priority for me to maintain a close link to the research community for evaluation and implementation of innovate advances in information technology.
