Work Experience

February 2013 – ...

The great jump into the unknown, I became my own boss and started as freelance consultant.
Since then I worked for several clients and on a diverse range of projects, a quick overview:

Lazuli Coaching Training Institute

  • SEO for corporate website
  • Set up of cloudbox environment for ERP system and hosting of corporate site
  • Set up basic OpenERP environment for invoicing
  • Maintain and adapt website in Drupal
  • On-going tech and operational support

Geunes & Gijbels Insurance Broker

  • Set up Facebook page and campaign app
  • Install digital signage equipment and provide digital content
  • All round support for social media and web presence

Vente Exclusive Online shop

Senior QA/Test engineer at Vente-Exclusive
Freelance assignment to support internal QA during the release of the new shop (v.3) and mobile apps.
This assignment required a structured exploratory testing approach to surface the most important issues first in order to meet the go-live deadline.
After a full exploratory test coverage, a more structured approach was implemented to keep track of more detailed coverage information.
This approach resulted in a go-live well within the deadline and smoother than any previous release.

David helped us out in the QA of our 3 largest projects that were all released within the same month. From day 1 he immediately found his place in the team and could contribute to a smooth and issue free release of all projects. Aside clear technical skills David has also a great personality: proactive, reliable and with excellent communication skills. This was a temporary mission but I will clearly work with David again for our next QA project.
