About Me

I’m writing this email regards to the open position in your esteemed organization. 

I have 12+ years of experience, in the IT industry across various roles such as Scrum Master, Selenium Automation Engineer, Test...

I began my journey in the IT industry as a manual tester at Cognizant Technology Solutions. Overs the years I picked up Core Java and Selenium automation skills and gained experience as a Scrum Master while working at Cognizant. It is here the seeds of right process implementation were sown into my working style.

I have worked in SDET and Scrum Master roles in Harman Connected Services and continued in an SDET role in Powerschool LLp.  At Parablu Systems I was able to guide the team towards following agile practices.

I have been able to demonstrate my planning, leadership and project management skills during my recent short stint at Niveus Solutions Pvt Ltd and have driven projects towards successful completion.

To keep myself updated on technology I have enrolled for Full stack development and Rest Assured Automation courses and am currently pursuing them on weekends.
