Jarno Raid

former project manager at Nortal

Irina is always up to practice new technologies and gadgets or create something on her own in order to improve results and make life easier. Curiosity going hand in hand with ultimate correctness and ability to dig into the depths most testers wouldn't dare to dream of makes her unique.

Helena Jeret-Mäe

former head on testing at Nortal

Irina is a professional software tester in the best sense of the word. She is continuously developing and broadening her knowledge in testing and technology which makes her an invaluable team member and leader in her own right. Irina is willing to take the time and make the effort to learn new skills, and pass this knowledge on in a team setting or by publishing a blog post. With her calm attitude and considerable technical savvy, she's the one to work with in building quality software.

Agnes Karlson

former CEO at Tartu University Hospital Children's Foundation and former CEO at Artha Rahaadakeemia Foundation

Irina Ivanova was a volunteer in Tartu University Hospital Children's Foundation from 2013 to 2014. Irina helped with all day-to-day IT related issues in the organization, but her greatest project was to create platform and prototype for the new homepage according to the visuals provided by creative agency. I am very thankful to Irina for all her time, that she was ready to contribute in the idea to evolve IT area of one of the largest children's oriented foundation in Estonia! If all people would do voluntary work with such commitment as Irina did, then charitable organizations would evolve as common successful organizations!

Küllike Saar

former CEO at Tartu University Hospital Children's Foundation

Irina was very responsible and agile volunteer. Under her guidance a lot of IT related issues have been solved. Additionally she had high motivation and was very creative and flexible in her actions. Irina is definitely valuable employee.

cognitio liber

I love books as a physical craft and practice book binding and restoration. Also I am a proud owner of a table-top hand press Adana 8x5. Read about it in my blog (russian only) or explore pictures on instagram.
