  • Authored over 2,500 test cases,
  • Working with business analysts, development teams. Developed detail test scenarios required to fully regress over 40% of the application. Developing test required reviewing business/design specs
  • Setup and documented process for QA code release and environment management, The process involved executing sanity test in development environment, verifying critical QA bugs are addressed prior to migrating code to QA environment, and finally re-run of sanity checks in QA prior to QA team beginning the test cycles.
