Varjo Technologies is a rapidly growing Finnish technology company that develops virtual and mixed reality software as well as the first VR and XR glasses in the world that can match the resolution of the human eye. Their customer base includes big players in the industrial sector, such as car, simulator and aircraft manufacturers and airlines.
Among other projects, we have collaborated with Varjo on quality assurance tasks related to their VR/XR glasses.
Testing has involved a wide range of different quality assurance tasks, such as motherboard compatibility testing using different configurations, robustness testing that looks into HW/SW combinations in unexpected use cases, for example, and acceptance testing of devices received from the factory before delivering them to end customers.
In addition to these tasks, the assignment covered a number of individual tasks, building of testing environments, and various types of tinkering with and tweaking of technological solutions.
Jani Ahlgren, Senior Test Engineer, Qubilea: The work at Varjo has been the most versatile job in my career so far. It included an incredible selection of different tasks, such as hardware and software testing, configuration and calibration of test environments, and numerous smaller jobs that required the use of my technical problem-solving skills and Python. Sometimes my work involves repeating certain test routines in terminal device testing; at times it’s all about building test environments or testing firmware or software. I enjoy versatile tasks and new challenges, which is why Varjo was an interesting and pleasant customer for me.
The Qubilea specialists also have strong technical expertise in quality assurance that focuses more on hardware. The majority of us have backgrounds in testing tasks in the mobile sector, which require solid skills in software and hardware quality assurance as well as laboratory measurements carried out in the form of non-functional testing. When selecting and training our staff, we focus on ensuring that their skills match even the most challenging scenarios.
This makes it possible for us to dive into the projects of customers like Varjo with relative ease, ensuring the customer gets a skilled professional who can adapt to its hectic research and development activities at a short notice. We always want to be our customer’s best friend, which is why our trusted player Jani was the best choice for this case.

It’s been a pleasure to work with Jani from Qubilea. He is a quick learner who got to terms with our testing system quickly. While Jani was learning to use the functions of the testing system, he also automated parts of it to make the work faster and easier for himself. Jani is a systematic worker who records his tasks and scrupulously reports all findings with necessary background information in the flagging system. He is always ready to take on new challenges and has shown his flexible attitude in tough situations that have sometimes required some extra working hours.
