Our London office was opened in 2018 so that we could serve our clients better.
Exactpro Top Management Team in London
We are currently in the process of migrating the Exactpro test tools suite that we have built over the years to th2 – a single next-generation test automation solution for complex transaction processing systems.
Alexey Zverev, co-CEO and co-founder, Exactpro
The Exactpro motto is ‘Build Software to Test Software’. With 600+ specialists on board and over eleven years’ experience of running a distributed team, we have excelled at testing and deliberately breaking our clients’ systems to ensure the most resilient performance and prevent production incidents from turning into disasters.
In the first quarter of this year, most of our teams switched to remote work, and we are proud to be able to continue providing the expected quality of software testing services without disruption. I think our industry and the whole world are successfully learning to work in the new normal and still get the job done.
As of December 2020, half of the Exactpro top management team are UK-based. I can’t say that moving away from home has been easy, but it’s definitely beneficial for being fully synced up with some of our major clients and being even more responsive to their needs.
We are currently in the process of migrating the Exactpro test tools suite that we have built over the years to th2 – a single next-generation test automation solution for complex transaction processing systems. During the time of the transition, we expect to provide extra support to all our clients, as our Chief Technology Officer Maxim Rudovsky and I are in London on a more permanent basis now.
Alyona Lamash, Head of Risk Management Practice, Exactpro
This year’s market volatility has taken a toll on the global clearing systems, with clearinghouses seeing historic moves in transaction volumes, sporadic shifts in intraday margin requirements; markets have experienced abnormal price fluctuations. While our clients systems have proven resilient, it’s too early to rest on our laurels.
I’m excited to be working as a member of our expanding London team, literally next door to some of our major clients and partners, alongside Alexey Zverev, Maxim Rudovsky, our Senior Project Managers Pavel Sigov, Alexey Pereverzev, Maxim Nikiforov, Asya Legotina, and Andrey Zavora, and our Business Development Team – Michael Smith, Lilia Tira and Ian Salmon.
Like all other firms in the financial services industry, we should keep moving forward, aligning our strategies and uniting our efforts to support the operational resilience of our client’s systems under the conditions of uncertainty.
Our ultimate goal is to help our clients stay operational and compliant and future-proof our clients’ systems from the standpoint of their quality. This requires tireless work and comprehensive testing, as opposed to having a “box ticking” attitude.
Maxim Rudovsky, Chief Technology Officer, Exactpro
This year has not been the easiest. And yet, we have prevailed and come out stronger. Our Deliberate Practice of Software Testing approach has proven to be the right one for software quality assurance.
Our software development and testing teams are close to officially launching th2 and releasing it to open source. With a single data-driven platform-agnostic end-to-end test automation solution for testing modern complex financial market infrastructures in place, the opportunities are abundant, and I’m happy to be here in the UK to facilitate the transition.
