Michał Stryjak

Michał Stryjak works as Head of Software Development at DataWalk. Currently involved in creating a product that helps identify patterns and relationships of data elements between large, complex data sets that may be scattered around the company. Since 2007, when his adventure in testing began, Michał gained experience as Tester and Test Manager at Siemens, Volvo or Objectivity. He quickly realized that testing itself does not improve the quality so he started to focus on processes and relations. He discovered that the real key to Quality is a well organized team and efficient communication with project stakeholders.
