Google Campus Visit – Mountain View, CA.
With my team at Doran Jones, NY.
I test “hello world”.
Over a decade in software testing, my job has transformed me from being a ‘blind executor’ of test steps written by senior testers to a ‘test consultant’ where I help business consultants write testable requirements. I help clients/developers fix bugs before the code starts. My work is more of preventing bugs than finding bugs. I solve complex testing problems and make testing efficient for my team members.
My involvement with testing is beyond 9 am to 5 pm. If you are a tester and happen to be someone who keeps eyes, ears open about software testing, you might have already heard of “Testing Circus” – an online software testing magazine. Testing Circus is my brain child. Started in 2010, we have published 50 monthly editions of this magazine without a break till April 2016. Thousands of software testers read this magazine world wide. Currently I am working on a similar website which will publish testing related news and updates.
When I was in India, I used to teach testing on weekends. Some of my friends still teach software testing in India under my guidance at Talent Plus Plus. Teaching is a great way to learn. I was also a founder member of an initiative that started free testing conferences in India.
I have worked for a top Indian IT services company such as HCL Technologies Ltd and HCL America, Inc. I have over 14 years of experience in software testing, managed large testing team. Currently, I work for Doran Jones, Inc. New York city. Blockchain and FinTech are my new passion.
