“Andrey is one of the most skilled performance testing experts I know. It's a real honor to have him join my team.

Andrey and his team’s insights in JMeter development and performance testing, as well as his deep understanding of the needs of large scale testing in an agile development environment will give an invaluable boost to our technological advancements.”

As BlazeMeter’s Chief Scientist, Pokhilko will be responsible for developing, expanding and managing the company’s product portfolio to address the growing needs of its prospects and customers.
