Experience

  • Argyle Employment Data Platform QA Lead

    In Argyle, I was responsible for building the QA strategy and QA process from scratch, including test automation, tools and processes creation, functional and non-functional quality assurance, documentation, and continuous deployment.

  • Ohpen Cloud-native Core Banking Platform | Lead QA Engineer
    http://www.ohpen.com

    I built a QA strategy for core cloud banking solutions across the whole company and automating all regression tests for the release verification.

    My responsibilities in the company were:
    • Building test automation solutions.
    • Creating the test management process.
    • Hiring other QA engineers, training and knowledge sharing across all dev teams, non-functional testing, and test automation.

  • SOAP API Test Automation Framework
    https://www.npmjs.com/package/teppa

    While working with SOAP API tests automation using the SoapUI tool, I had issues with test stability and running speed for larger test projects. Hence, I developed Node.js-based test framework for SOAP API tests automation which was more stable, faster, and easier to customize.
