Get to know some PrimeKey faces

Ebrahim Shirvanian

Quality Assurance Engineer

I like that management is effective in PrimeKey. They understand the importance of hiring good people and then simply clearing the way so their team members can do what they do best with few obstacles.

Ebrahim has three MSc from three universities in three different countries: Armenia, Sweden and Canada. All of them within Software Engineering and Computer Science. He developed a passion and attitude towards software quality assurance when he realized that he could explore how software is built and tested in top tech companies, such as PrimeKey. Ebrahim is an ISTQB certified tester and now works with software quality assurance at PrimeKey, which he finds fascinating. When feature designs are complete, he start his test strategy and plan. This is done through collaborating with developers, understanding the changes/implementation and building the test strategy accordingly.

The possibility to work for a rapidly growing Swedish IT development company in an international, and fast paced environment is something that initially was very attractive to me and something that I still truly value at PrimeKey.
