About

I have accumulated over 8+ years of experience in Software Quality Assurance (QA). Most recently, I served as a Senior QA Engineer at Natera, where my focus was on testing medical applications associated with oncology. This role honed my expertise in test planning and execution. I am particularly passionate about contributing to platforms that make a meaningful impact on both company customers and society at large. Prior to this, I held the position of QA Automation Engineer at Minerva Networks, where I played a pivotal role in enhancing products and services for our clientele. From the initial planning stages through to final releases, I was deeply involved in testing across various devices and platforms including iOS, Android mobile and tab, STBs, Fire TV, Chromecast, among others. My collaborative nature facilitated effective teamwork with cross-functional teams to ensure comprehensive testing and alignment with user requirements. My testing experience spans web applications, mobile apps, APIs, and standalone software. Beyond my technical capabilities, I possess strong communication and collaboration skills, enabling seamless interaction with development teams, product owners, and stakeholders. I thrive in fast-paced, agile environments, excelling as a dedicated problem-solver.

Maharashtra Police Academy (MPA)

Jun-2012 to May-2013
Maharashtra Police Academy (MPA) Currently works on Man power and paper work. This traditional approach seems very time consuming and also it increases lots of human efforts. Marinating heap of files for works like attendance checking, library work, visitor and cadet registration is very much inefficient. Also searching and updating of records in so many files its very time consuming. So to overcome all this odds we are implementing a project as AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR MAHARASTRA POLICE ACADEMY (ASMPA). ASMPA is an RFID based project which provides robust, secure and automatic management of working in MPA for both cadet and officer. Also we are trying to achieve such automation in library such that we can carry out all the work in library without librarian. ASMPA also has an inbuilt facility of sending SMS and Email alerts to the Cadets, Officers and Visitors. The Modules Included in our projects are : · CCTV surveillance. · Work scheduling and Task Management. · Attendance Management · Library Management · Canteen Management · Security · Automatic Password and UserID generation · Intrusion detection · Vendor, Visitor and Employee Registration module. · SMS system for library · Gas booking by sms · Website for MPA This are the modules proposed by MPA till know and more modules will be added with the increasing requirements of client MPA.
