QA for startups

Ajitava Deb

I have started my professional journey in Chennai, India after completing my masters in software engineering. My first assignment was into mobile testing using calabash and I liked it. Sooner, I was asked to train the whole Bangalore team of around 25+ testers.

I have learned and worked a little in domains like big data, machine learning, e-commerce, and telecom over a period of almost a decade. I have previously worked with Photon, Hewlett Packard, Polaris Networks and Cognizant. My testing experience also includes manual and functional testing. I am a certified scrum master. Once, I started leading the teams, I realized that I wanted to understand and learn how the complete business cycle in an organization works and how/what should be done to leverage a firms competitive advantage. Therefore, I planned to pursue masters in business administration. Organizational Behaviour and Strategy are my favourites.

On the personal front, I am a very curious person on any topic. According to Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, I am described as INFP-T. I like playing soccer, running and reading books. I have run 5 marathons till now. I have presented few papers at national conferences.

The reason for choosing Qxf2 as the workplace is the philosophy and culture behind it.
