"There is no doubt that 2010 was an outstanding year," said Most Valuable Tester Winner Brian Rock. "uTest matured in leaps and bounds over the previous year. As a result, the complexity of the projects that I have been involved in has also increased significantly. This has given me various new opportunities, such as developing some rather complex automation frameworks, in addition to honing my exploratory testing skills. Having this level of exposure to so many technologies is extremely valuable and the experience has been utterly exciting!"

Brian Rock is the back-to-back winner of the Most Valuable uTester award for both 2009 and 2010. Brian brings more than ten years of software engineering and leadership experience to the uTest community. After obtaining his Master's degree in engineering management from the University of Texas, Brian served as Sgt. for Combat Arms Forward Recon Team in the U.S. Army. He joined uTest in early 2009 and, with his strong testing background, Brian has earned MVT (Most Valuable Tester) bonuses on multiple test cycles.
