  • Amazon Prime Reading Canada

    It is an Amazon Prime benefit launched in the Canada marketplace. It provides Amazon Prime customers with a range of hundreds of books to borrow for freeā€”up to 10 at a time. I led the QA effort to release this feature in Canada, coordinating with several teams and QA engineers to deliver a quality experience with customers.

  • NetApp Solidfire Management Node

    Solidfire is a scalable storage solution. I worked on expanding a test framework and developing the test plan and tests to provide coverage for a virtual management node for the appliance, focusing on the security aspect of the machine.

  • Integrated a Mission-critical Service with Testing Framework

    We had an image comparison service used in testing applications. It was Java-based, and the testing framework we use for our product is C++ based. We needed to use the image comparison service to test functionality, which we were otherwise unable to test. I created an API layer for the Java service and built an HTTP client and API wrapper for the test framework to communicate with it. I then created the necessary framework code to use the API wrapper and perform image comparison logic to ensure Kindle pages were rendered as expected. This functionality enabled the team to automate over 30% of manual tests, reducing release time, and increasing efficiency.
