6/2015 – 9/2015


Art TriCode I developed the TriCode wide automated test and deployment strategy. Test will be executed automatedly using Selenium and Cucumber in a Agile Behavior Driven approach. In the strategy we explicitly avoid some of problems that can occur when using Cucumber and Behavior Driven Development making maximum use of the advantages of Cucumber while avoiding the disadvantages.

Test manager
Ziggo UPC, Utrecht
1/2014 – 5/2015 (1 Jahr, 5 Monate)

1/2014 – 5/2015


To enhance the security for customers My Ziggo accounts the entire password policy and procedure to recover lost passwords and user names was changed. This had a big impact on the on both the front end and back end systems. Apart from testing the changed applications this made it also necessary to do a system integration test over all affected systems.
I was responsible for the System test, the Functional Acceptance Test and the User Acceptance Test
Because the subject of the changes was security we set up extremely thorough automated reusable tests. That can test the systems better and faster than is possible by hand.
To be able to find errors a soon as possible I teamed up developers and testers. This lead to a significant decline in errors found in the FAT and UAT and significantly faster development.
The developers worked both at Ziggo and at several third party suppliers. Among other
I also made the Use Cases for the changes.
Ziggo uses Jira, Selenium and Sopa UI for requirement based automated testing of its web portals
The chosen test approach led to zero defects found in production, 30% reduction in development time and 70% reduction in errors found in FAT and UAT.

Testmanager Distribution Management System SCADA Smartgrid
Alliander, Arnhem
8/2011 – 10/2012 (1 Jahr, 3 Monate)

8/2011 – 10/2012


As a first step in the rollout of a Dutch smart grid Alliander’s Asset Management System, the GIS system and the Siemens SCADA System (DMS) are interfaced and functionality is added.
I replaced the previous test coordinator. And got the jammed testing process moving again. I did this by first creating a new Maters Test Plan. With the appropriate test strategy for the organization. Thus making sure the test plan was accepted by the organization.
Secondly I had the testers and users design a test set that could be carried out within a flexible planning. Because initially the software was not mature enough for good a System Test to be carried out. And this made it almost impossible to plan with any accuracy.
Ultimately, the quality of the delivered software turned out to be so bad that I first had to intervene in the development process.
In the meantime, the User Acceptance Test was drawn up. Because the known lack of quality this was done as flexible as possible for the same reasons.
Based on the test results up to now it has been decided to stop the tests until further notice. And concentrate on development first.

ABN Amro, Amsterdam
8/2010 – 10/2010 (3 Monate)

8/2010 – 10/2010


ABM Amro Bank merged with Fortis. This included their mortgage departments. As a result the mortgage systems and processes had to be changed significantly. The planned Process Chain Test (PCT) had to cope with delays. I was hired to make sure the PCT was finished within time after all. By making changes to the way the PCT was going to be executed, by relocating parts of the testing activities and by allocating more resources we succeeded to finish within time. Without losing quality.
Afterwards we executed an extra End To End (ETE) Test based on the test results of the PCT.
