Focus on our experts



Expert Testing

For over 20 years, Bruno’s brain has been intensely working on software testing, how it is practiced, its challenges, and the methods and technologies that foster its progress (specially by associating graphic representations to text).


Bruno’s brain is fascinating: a PhD in Information Technology, a professor and researcher at the University of Franche-Comté, world’s leading expert in Model-Based Testing, and heavily involved in implementing AI in testing.


Bruno shares his expertise with the testing community thanks to his roles with entities such as CFTL (French Software Testing Board) and ISTQB. From these control towers, he also observes market trends and identifies promising innovations.

As a consulting scientist at Smartesting, he advises the company on his choice of technology, and guides the product vision.



Customer Success Manager

Of Macedonian origin, Elizabeta is a polyglot. She not only speaks English, Spanish, and a bit of German, but also Serbian, Croatian and Bulgarian … and, of course, the franc-comtois dialect of French.

This pint-sized powerhouse of a woman is full of warmth and full of positive energy. She holds a PhD in Information Technology and is a Model-Based Testing expert. The topic of her thesis, by the way, was the “Generation of tests from UML/OCL models for critical evolving systems”. The name says it all.

At Smartesting, when we talk about multiple talents, we talk about a variety of roles. Elizabeta is our Project Director for R&D, developing customer projects or working on topics of scientific exploration that precedes the development phase of Yest®. She is also our Customer Success Manager, giving her advice to make our users more efficient and happy with Yest®.



Product Manager

Arnaud’s drawings aren’t pretty, but he is the king of modelling, or, to be exact, modelling software. CAD Software developer at MatraVision, followed by his stints at Rational and IBM, he has widened his ambit at Smartesting as a Product Manager, propagating our company’s product vision. Make no mistake: Arnaud isn’t anything like a lab rat!


A voracious reader, Arnaud names data sets after fictional characters - Julien Sorel, Cyrano, Jean Valjean, Charles Swann, etc. - in our product demos. He doesn't tell our clients tall tales, but come evening, he creates drama on the stage!

Yest® users, it is this versatile, high-calibre software developer who moulds our product: you are in for a treat!
