About Me

Daniel KnottHi, I am Daniel. I have more than +12 years of professional experience as software tester and product manager in software development projects from different industries. Together with my teams we developed, tested and shipped digital products with high quality to our customers.

I worked for companies from different industries such as IBM, Accenture, XING, AOE and MaibornWolff. In different agile projects, I gained strong knowledge in different areas of software testing e.g. mobile (web & native), search and recommendation technologies, web and desktop applications. I was always responsible for the whole test management, manual and automated testing using technologies/ software such as Selenium, Espresso, Keep It Functional (KIF), Calabash, Cucumber, Capybara, JUnit, Cypress, Appium, Java and many more.

I love to write and talk about software testing. Take a look at my publications to get the complete picture.

Since October 2021, I am working as Head of Software Testing at MaibornWolff. In this role I am responsible in leading a department of +30 software test engineers to help them improving their software testing skills and to work in various projects across different industries.

How Does it Work?

At the beginning you and I will analyze your current skills, problems or wishes that you have. Together we will define and write down specific goals to find a solution for your individuell needs and what steps are needed to go further. In our follow up sessions, I will provide you with feedback on the progress you have made and we can talk about potential obstacles that you had to face. Depending on your topic, I will provide you with individual information and material to get better. In all sessions, I will share my knowledge with you from my past +12 years of software testing experience with you.

All session will be done in a remote setup with video sharing. The coaching can be done in english or german.

  1. First session 15-20 minutes to get to know each other and to talk about your needs.
  2. I will outline a follow up coaching session with your requirements and what to expect from the coaching.
  3. Our first 60 minutes coaching session starts and more to follow if you need them.
  4. Every session will be documented and shared with you.

What Does it Cost?

The first session will be around 15-20 minutes to get to know each other and where you can explain me your needs. This first session is for free. Based on the input and your requirements, I will define and write down an outline of the coaching sessions. I will share my outline with you and you can decide if you want to go on with the individual coaching or not. If you want to take the coaching, each session is 60 minutes long and will cost you $99 or 89€.
