Benjamin spent the first 15 years of his career as a software developer and trainer. He decided in 2016 after getting fascinated with Selenium to make test automation his main profession. He is working for trivago N.V. in Germany as a Test Automation Engineer within the core QA team. His focus shifted more to backend and API testing after five years as the core developer of trivago's in-house UI test automation framework.
Benjamin is the author of the book "Writing API Tests With Karate" and maintains two open source projects for Cucumber BDD parallel test execution and reporting. Also, he is a well-known conference speaker and author on testing, automation and software craftsmanship topics.
