Beyond Anthill: Ani Paskaleva

Another Beyond Anthill is here, and this time we shine a spotlight on Ani Paskaleva, Senior QA Automation Engineer. Discover what she does as a digital superhero and learn more about her aspirations of helping others to grow in their careers.

Describe your role at Anthill and what a typical day looks like for you. 

Ani: My typical day at Anthill begins with a cup of coffee to kickstart my morning. I then open our team board to review the tasks for the day and prepare myself. A significant portion of my day is spent in meetings with my amazing team, discussing project progress, brainstorming ideas, and planning testing strategies. Between meetings, I dedicate time to preparing documents and setting up the testing environment to ensure smooth execution of test cases. It’s a dynamic and fulfilling routine that allows me to contribute effectively to our product’s quality and success. 

Describe your job in a way that a 3-year-old would understand it. 

Ani: I’m like a digital superhero! I create special tests to check if the system works perfectly and doesn’t have any little bugs or glitches. 

What was your motivation to join Anthill’s team? 

Ani: I joined Anthill because I already knew some of the team and was impressed by the company’s mindset. The positive work environment and opportunity for growth made it an easy choice for me. 

How does Anthill encourage and support you to pursue your interests? 

Ani: I have the freedom to organize my work in my own time and the support to gain additional training and certifications if desired. 

Can you share something that you are currently working on that you find particularly exciting or challenging, and why? 

Ani: Right now, I’m collaborating closely with the business and development teams to create a test strategy that everyone can follow. It’s exciting because I get to bring all these different groups together and make sure we’re all on the same page. The challenge is gaining their trust and getting them to believe in my approach. 

What are your future goals & aspirations?  

Ani: My future goal is to lead and mentor others to help them learn and grow. 

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?  

Ani: In my spare time, I enjoy engaging in national traditional dances, participating in Zumba classes, and spending quality time with my family, friends, and my dog. I find relaxation in nature, allowing me to unwind and recharge.
