Marie Nilsson

Product Owner

I am a Software Quality Assurance consultant with more than 15 years of experience within the area. I have had the opportunity to work in different branches, in different roles, and with different responsibilities. After several years working with tests I have grown an interest in the requirements and especially as a Product Owner in the agile way of working.

I have been working as a product owner, business analyst, requirements engineer, test engineer, test developer, test coordinator, test leader, and test Manager in branches such as Telecom, IT, Aviation, Energy, and Banking industries. I love working with IT and software because of its constant new development, which evolves me as well.
