I've worked on several testing projects as a QA Automation Engineer with international clients on complex challenges in finance, retail, insurance, mobile, healthcare, e-commerce, and banking companies, with knowledge of testing techniques/methodologies and how to apply them (including functional/integration, sanity, regression, automation, exploratory testing, end-to-end testing, API testing, etc.), taking the project from the planning, design, development, administration, and execution, achieving the goals and objectives that are expected by the business in the implementation of IT solutions. I've been delighted to be a leader in setting up QA best practices and understanding all phases of the Software Development Life Cycle in a regulated environment.
