Reward Gateway (Toptal Client)
As an automation architect and engineering manager for a quality team, I took care of developing app automation from scratch and helped the team to achieve 90+% coverage of test cases. This helped the business to have a release cycle reduced by 60% and also parallel automation helped us to reduce device-specific issues.
This app impacts directly consumers and the quality of the app literally translates into business success.
As a lead quality engineer for this product, I made sure that the quality of the app remains top-notch and release cycles are reduced.
Automated deliveries, training the team, and voicing out ideas for business success were my key achievements.
Early feedback to developers helped the product to evolve and mature.
We took care of dynamic pricing of the rides and helped businesses achieve profit.
As an automation engineer, I contributed to 100% automated releases where once the back-end code was pushed to the QA server, the same was tested on GitLab Pipeline and automatically promoted to the next environment if everything passed.
I helped the team to automate all the manual cases for the iOS version of the app and ran the same test for iPhone as well as iPad of multiple generations on Jenkins to make sure the quality of the app is top-notch.
I also helped with defect reporting found during automation. The product was further acquired by Axway.
This was complete back-end automation and I created a suite of around 370 test cases to ramp up our coverage.
I was a part of the functional team that tested the mobile apps. For the web version of this application, I used Selenium which gave us a faster release cycle for web chat.
This was further taken down as the business was not able to commercialize it successfully.
