My name is Jan Hrček and since 2009 I hold a master’s degree in Computer Science from Masaryk University, Faculty of Informatics.
Currently I work as a Senior Quality Engineer at Red Hat in Brno, Czech Republic. I am a member of RHBA Quality Assurance team responsible for quality of RHDM and RHBA products, which are based on KIE Group open-source projects.
My job role involves close collaboration with project management and developers on many tasks throughout project life cycle which includes:
- product specification
- pull request reviews
- development, maintenance and execution of automated test suites
- reporting of bugs found and verification of bug fixes
- overseeing and consulting with junior team members
I am experienced Java programmer, holder of Oracle Certified Associate, Java SE 7 Programmer and Oracle Certified Professional, Java SE 7 Programmer certificates. I am also Functional Programming enthusiast with several years of experience using Haskell and Elm languages in hobby and work-related projects. Here is an incomplete list of software and technologies I use on daily basis and am comfortable/proficient with: Linux (mostly Fedora and occasionally playing with Nix), Java, Maven, Git, Jenkins, Jira, GWT (Google Web Toolkit), Selenium, HTML, CSS, Haskell (GHCi, Stack), Elm, Graphviz, Docker, SQL, Relational databases (PostgreSQL, SQLite), IntelliJ IDEA, Atom, Vim …
I also love learning stuff about Mathematics, in particular Algebra, Combinatorics, Graph Theory and Category Theory. I have a long lasting interest in theory that makes it possible to create more robust and reliable software.
I am native Czech speaker, but am also fluent in English (holder of Cambridge FCE certificate) and I am intermediate German speaker.
