The “Meet the Tester” series introduces Adina, former professional ballerina currently testing microscope software.
Name: Adina Beer
Job title: Software Tester
Joined QualityMinds in… 2018
When I was younger, I wanted to become a… ballet dancer
Education: after finishing a dance education, I actually worked as a professional classical ballet dancer in the Berlin Opera House. When I reached the peak of my career, I decided to go back to school to study Arts Management. After graduating I took a job as School Programs Manager for a ballet company with attached ballet school in Boston, USA. 7 years later I find myself back in Germany. Being a little worn out of the constant existential and financial struggles in the non-profit world, I was looking for an opportunity to switch into the “profit world” and decided to take the job as an Executive Assistant for one of “The Big Four”. There I first got into direct contact with IT as I was supporting the IT Advisory. Enjoying more and more working in an IT environment as well as looking for further challenges, I was given the opportunity to start my career as a software tester at QualityMinds. And I LOVE it!
Current project: I support the medical field and test the software of surgery microscopes used for tumor, spine, and eye surgeries.
