Test Lead (Automation)

Environment: /Tools: AWS, SOAP UI, Jmeter, Jenkins, GitHub, Teradata, Oracle, Eclipse, MS SQL Management Studio, HP Service test, Jira, Confluence and Slack.


  • Developed an automated test framework using the SOAPUI open-source tool with the aid of Groovy scripts. This test framework performs a data setup and then validates that data across multiple databases (RDBMS and NOSQL data stores) at the click of a button. At the end of the test run, the SOAPUI tool also generates an automated test result report (in the form of HTML), in a format suggested by Business users.
  • Developed a Java-based test harness, using which the team could perform both functional and regression testing. This test harness was used to run automated tests for the following components - SOA (Web services), Big Data (NOSQL data stores like Elastic Search), Rest APIs, User interfaces (UI) and RDBMS. The automated regression test suites were set up in compliance with the CI-CD model and it executes the tests from Monday through Friday at 8 am. The test results are updated real-time in JIRA (a test and defect management tool). This test framework was set up as a reusable artefact (testing teams across projects will be able to re-use the Java components and implement them in their respective projects).
  • Extrapolated the test harness to test a web application by leveraging the Selenium framework.
  • Enhanced the Java-based test framework to test components built on the cloud-based AWS (Amazon Web Services). This test framework helped the team to System test and Regression test applications on the client’s premises as well as on the cloud (AWS).
  • Developed a Java API to connect to Hadoop HIVE (Big Data). Integrated this API into the existing Data warehousing test framework that was built by the Infosys Team. As a result of this integration, the QA team was able to verify the data migration from relation databases (Oracle/Teradata) to Hadoop (Big Data).
  • Developed automated tests in Java to validate data in AWS modules (S3 and Kinesis) and ESB (Tibco) Topics/Queues. Re-used Server-less test framework (built using AWS Lambda) for performance testing REST APIs.
  • System tested various Business Intelligence reports (MSTR) and validated the data against the respective database(s).


Offshore Test Lead

Environment: /Tools: RMS, AS400, Putty, MS SQL 2000, TOAD, OS (Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, Mac), Browsers (IE, Firefox, Safari) and HP-QC.


  • Validate the end to end process of a retail application (built using AS400) that’s interconnected to RMS (Oracle), SQL Server and other downstream applications.
  • Liaise with Business Analyst(s) to understand the requirements and translate them into test scenarios.
  • Prepare test artefacts (Test strategy document, Test plan, test cases and Test Exit reports).
  • Applied SQL queries for back-end testing.
  • Worked as a ‘defect prevention anchor’ (DP anchor) for the team. Utilized various statistical analysis techniques as part of the monthly DP activities.
  • Conducted quarterly DP meetings with all the cross-functional teams and review the various statistics (e.g. defect ratio, test case efficiency) collected from various teams.
  • Undertake UAT and GO-Live test support activities.
