    • Smoke tested and performed health checks in up to 12 applications during tax season. Applications ranged from production accounting software to in-house scheduling tools.
    • Automated regression tests for the GUI using UFT for Windows-based applications and Selenium for web applications.
    • Designed, developed, implemented, and maintained an in-house API testing tool, which in less than a year raised tax calculations coverage from 5% to 100% and expanded above the initial scope. This tool ran over 1.5 million tests and identified at least 38 defects after all other QA cycles had been executed.
    • Worked on expanding the in-house tool to provide broader support for more teams, including guiding part of the team in a transition from UFT to Protractor.
    • Provided training and mentoring in tools and practices to new QA team members, as well as leading research and proof of concept projects on new tools.

Experience

  • In-House Test Execution and Reporting (Development)

    This project started as a proof of concept and in under a year was running over 1.5 million API tests. With only one other colleague working on it, we were responsible for requirements gathering, architectural design, development, implementation, and maintenance. The tool could be used during test analysis as well as during regression testing and would save all the data for reporting on test execution, progress and change over time in a MongoDB database. The initial clients of the tool were the Regulatory Testing Team, who used it to increase test coverage on tax tables and schedules and found over 38 defects that were successfully handled before going to production.

    At a later stage, improvements were being made to run tests in parallel and remove any dependencies on the system under test, making it possible to use the same tool for different types of tests as well as many different teams, aiming at effectively unifying the test standards of the company.

  • Backend Automation with SoapUI (Development)

    In my first automation project, I helped leverage the underutilized potential of a tool that was already being used as a company standard. With some learning on my own time, I was able to bring forth a use case to the project manager, who allowed me a couple of hours to complete a proof of concept.

    When the automation was implemented, we were able to test a much larger combination of inputs, with the option to run a random few or to run all possible values of a given field. One notable example was being sure that all the over 200 country codes were always working.
