OpenRoad welcomes Walter and Carolien

Walter Görlitz is our newest Quality Assurance Engineer

Walter has more than fifteen years experience in software testing. He has a degree in psychology from TWU. He came to testing from customer support at Chancery Software where he was one of the founding members of the QA and Testing department. He carries the goal of helping the customer into every test. He has since performed automated and manual QA and testing duties at Dynapro Technologies Incorporated, GTE Enterprise Solutions, and Safe Software. He has also created testing teams at StockHouse Media Corp., and eTunnels, Inc.

Walter has been instantly productive at ORC, jumping into a major project set to launch next year, and well as testing several Electronic Arts game title sites.

Carolien Dekeersmaeker joins the ThoughtFarmer team as Sales Coordinator.

Carolien has a Masters degree in French Literature and completed a post-graduate Communications program at the University of Antwerp (Belgium). She brings over 6 years of experience in customer service and account management. Carolien joins us after various roles at Uniserve Communications which included time in account management, presales, and wholesale coordination. Prior to Uniserve, Carolien was at British Telecom as an Order Manager for their Global Services department. She’s known for her exceptional follow-through, a strong customer focus and methodical work ethic.

Carolien also brings some great multilingual support as ThoughtFarmer continues to explode internationally. Her French, English, Dutch and Spanish language skills are sure to come in handy as ThoughFarmer 4.0 launches in 2010. Carolien will be helping improve our ThoughtFarmer sales process and manage the furious pace of our demo schedule.

Walter and Carolien were able to join us in time for our Christmas party and our Christmas gift exchange and have not been scared off, so we look forward to continuing to enjoy their support into the new year and beyond.

Welcome Walter and Carolien!
