Jon Thysell's Summary
I am not in the job market. Job opportunity mails will be discarded as spam.
As a software test engineer, I fight passionately for the best user experience in the products I test. I own the flaws and defects that I find, and I take responsibility for driving those issues to resolution.
My most recent experiences are as a software test engineer, programming test cases and their support systems, security testing, running regular manual test passes, and being "in-the-know" in regard to my product feature's status.
My short-term career goals are to improve my skills as a software tester by increasing the number of tools and technologies that I am fluent with.
My long-term goals are to increase the number, size, and importance of the products that I am responsible for as a tester.
Operating Systems (Windows, Linux), Software Development (Basic, C++, C#, Java, Lua, .NET, PHP, Python, SQL, VBA, XML, Web Services), Software Testing (API / GUI Automation, Network Fuzzing, Manual Testing, Upgrade Scenarios), Simulation (AMPL, Arena, Matlab, Sigma), Web Design (CSS, XTHML), former CCNA
