Hi, I'm Koen

About MeAbout

Freelance test expert & web designer

With over 10 years of experience as software test consultant and web designer, I feel confident about my job. As a software tester, I began as technical tester and evolved to a test tools specialist, mainly in HP ALM, UFT and Performance Center. Not only as expert user or administrator, but also as coach and instructor. I provide user training in Dutch, French and English.
I started working as a support team member of Team Foundation Server in 2015. Great opportunity to learn the dev side in the IT world!
As a web designer, I have built simple websites up to corporate multinational websites with online shop features, 3D imaging and multilingual support with SEO characteristics.
