    Audi on Demand is an innovative mobility program that gives customers a new way to experience the Audi brand and its range of vehicles at the touch of a button. With Audi on-demand app, customers can reserve an Audi by the day for up to 28 days.

    I was responsible for manual testing in two separate scrum teams working on the web and iOS app, as well as managing an external remote team.
