Welcome to my website!

My name is Jacek Maciejewski. I am 39 years old. I am a QA Engineer living in Poznan (Poland), London (UK) and Tokyo (Japan). I specialise in web test automation with Selenium WebDriver and performance tests with JMeter. I also have experience in Agile coaching and consulting.

After completing computer science course in Poland I received a scholarship from Japanese Ministry of Education. In October 2008 I went to Sapporo to conduct a research at Hokkaido University where I was studying for 18 months. Unfortunately, I couldn't get my scholarship extended and I had to leave the university. However as my visa was still valid I decided to stay in Japan to conduct more research and study Japanese.

After returning to Poland I worked for the polish branch of Cognifide (British IT company) as QA Engineer for over 3 years and a half. Then I decided that I needed change and moved to London where I worked for ThoughtWorks as Senior QA Consultant. At that point I stepped into the role of consultant and became an Agile coach. After 5 years of work, I thought that it's a good point to take a break and moved to Tokyo to study Japanese. Currently I am back in my home town working for the same company as before.

My hobbies are manga, anime and s-f books. I used to practice karate. As I already mentioned I love Japan and everything that is related to it.

If there is anything I can help you with please don't hesitate to contact me.

P.S. Wonder how Jacek Maciejewski is related to address of this page? Yaci is my nickname, I've actually derived it from Jacek. ;)
