Florian Pilz studied education and worked in student teaching for several years. During this time, he found his enthusiasm for IT. For this reason, he switched to the world of software testing as a career changer in 2015. Since then, test automation has been his main point of interest. Thus, he built up automation in a wide variety of projects - for frontend as well as for backend and in the mobile area. Since summer 2021, he has been working as a test architect at Zeiss Digital Innovation, where he is building end-2-end testing in a highly distributed system.
