I am Mykola Avramuk

Quality and Video Streaming Engineer from Kyiv, Ukraine πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦
My area of interest:

β€’ Engineering Management
I write a blog about QA and Video Streaming
I like music, photography and Stoicism

From when I was young, I liked fixing things, especially our TV at home. This made me interested in engineering. I learned a lot about how videos work, which helped me decide to become a video engineer.

I studied to be a TV engineer at KPI. In my third year, I got an internship at a TV channel. Out of four interns, I was the only one who got a job offer. I started as a quality control engineer, then became an IT support engineer, and then a Video Broadcasting Automation Engineer. At the same time, I also worked as a video broadcast engineer for another TV channel.

A company that makes professional video broadcasting software noticed my hard work and skills. I still work there and I really enjoy my job.

I believe that there will always be a need for video engineers. There will always be new things to learn and new products to make.
