Coca-Cola Promo Campaign

I was responsible for creating API tests using stubs during the development process to ensure developers correctly implemented the requirements.

Additionally, end-to-end tests were implemented using Selenium to check the data from the UI is stored properly due to the languages (special letters) of the region.

Expedia

Worked in a cross-engineering team and helped implement services using Java and Spring. Additionally, I was responsible for validating API endpoint calls based on documentation provided by the client.

Set up and executed performance tests to check the bandwidth, TPS limitations, and system recovery.

MoneySuperMarket

My task was in collaboration with other test automation engineers to test the website to deliver a better user interface with better context and content. Used JavaScript and Protractor and executed the tests in a CI/CD tool.

Siemens—Mobile Device

Performed all QA activities on the project, such as test planning, creating test scenarios, and executing tests on different devices like desktops and tablets. As a scrum master, I was in charge of organizing meetings and scheduling ceremonies.

Enterprise Insurance Company—IPTIQ

Implemented story-related contract/API tests and updated legacy E2E test cases. I was in charge of improving the quality (CI/CD pipelines, code reviews, best practices to reduce duplications in testing to spare time) and introducing new processes to find issues early.

Leasing - Leaseplan

LeasePlan is the market leader for the best lease deals. My team was responsible for checking customer service-related application correctness, which was done via Phone calls by Twilio and other Salesforce-related interactions.
