Audi on Demand

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.

In my free time, I introduced Appium as a tool for automating functional testing of the iOS app, which helped the team to deliver higher quality software in a shorter space of time.

When working for the biggest mobile operator in Poland, I implemented new testing procedures that led to a much higher QA and efficient development, increasing contract value by 50%.
