What first attracted you to Software Testing?
I am a curious person; I like to learn and see how things work. So, I started software testing at the beginning of my career with a goal to help teams deliver the best solutions to their customers
What does an Automation Tester’s Day look like in your company?
I start my day by monitoring the scheduled test results (running every night) and checking for potential problems. I need to check which kind of tests need to be implemented and I code the automation tests based on the tests cases already provided. Also, I have a daily meeting with the team to discuss how the progress of tasks and update stakeholders about the progress of projects.
What advice would you give to someone considering a career in Automation Testing?
If you like code, you are curious and like to understand how things work, this is for you! Be focused on understanding how you can integrate your automation testing with other applications / pipelines to have better results.
Why is Software Testing so crucial in business today?
Speed is a competitive advantage, and with automation testing you can help the company to fail fast and fix it faster.
