    Lana Khilko
    Test Engineer at Groupon

    My life philosophy is to move forward, learn, explore and enjoy in the process, be open to emerging opportunities, people and situations that I meet on my path. All this and even more I get as a Test Engineer: unpredictability, the need to understand every little detail, the opportunity to work with smart, talented, extraordinary people. I got into the testing not in the usual way: I was born, grew up and got Master’s in Law in Belarus. For some time I was engaged in scientific research in this field. Then I worked as an editor in chief for one of the publishing houses. Later, when the IT industry began to grow rapidly, I decided to try myself in a new role and I’m incredibly happy about this ever since. Then there was a move to the US, working at Skype (Microsoft), various startup companies, and now at Groupon, contributing my share to creating a top rated mobile apps for iOS and Android!
