About me

I am Adam Toth, a seasoned Solution Architect and Quality Leader with a passion for driving digital transformations and optimizing software solutions. My journey has led me through esteemed organizations, each contributing to my expertise and growth.

At EPAM, I took on the role of Solution Architect and Quality Architect, leading global digital transformations in the Software Defined Network domain. Guiding 11 squads and over 400 experts, I developed and maintained organization-wide Test and Environment Strategies, ensuring quality and infrastructure alignment. I also showcased my performance engineering skills, designing frameworks and strategies for Microservice Architecture projects, while also being an advocate for mentorship and education.

Beyond technical roles, I have thrived as a public speaker at international conferences, sharing insights and knowledge. I've also had the privilege of guest lecturing at academic institutions, contributing to the growth of the next generation of IT professionals.

During my time at Vodafone Hungary, I led diverse teams as a Test Automation Team Leader, optimizing mobile applications and integrating solutions into CI/CD pipelines. As a Lead DevOps/Test Automation Engineer, I enhanced automation and monitoring frameworks for internal development squads, fostering efficiency and best practices.

My experience as a Contractor at United Consult involved recognizing potential business needs and developing automated Test/Health Check Frameworks. This role allowed me to showcase my ability to drive solutions that meet technical and strategic requirements.

Hewlett Packard provided me with an opportunity to excel as a Test and Test Automation Engineer. I introduced new provisioning systems and enhanced operations through API-based tools and integration solutions.

My dedication has not gone unnoticed, as I was honored with the EPAM CEO Award for "EPAM Impact - People Developer." This recognition further fuels my commitment to quality, innovation, and leadership.

My journey has been enriched with a strong mathematical foundation, technical proficiency across various domains, and a commitment to mentorship. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics from Eötvös Loránd University and have been recognized with certifications and awards that validate my dedication to quality and innovation.

Throughout my career, I have embraced challenges and opportunities, continuously evolving to meet the dynamic demands of the IT landscape.
