My story:

Identifying as Queer and living in India, does not go hand in hand. And so in 2013 I made a big, bold and brave decision to immigrate to the US.
Fast forward 5 years later.
Not only was I able to advance my professional career (software engineer with a specialty in quality assurance) I was also able to advance and fully explore my personal side.
This enabled me to flourish and discover all these different sides and pieces of me that existed all along but were never enabled. Namely that I absolutely love solving problems and more specifically performing quality assurance for all things tech and startup.
There is something so satisfying about taking a product from A to B to C to D …. To Z.
It’s funny what becomes possible when you are free to be exactly who you are.

My Platforms:

My portfolio:

As a part-time software quality analyst for Pick My Brain, I make sure every component on the website behaves as expected and the integration between different components is seamless. I recently tested, 'Booking', feature for this website and gave Maxine some easy wins on what is not working right and what can be made better.
Apart from that each webpage under goes a thorough testing whenever a developer makes any changes to make sure everything works well together. This in my language is called Integration Testing.
On the left, is a template I will share with you after testing your product. This will include the must haves (things you should certainly fix), should haves (Not critical but important to fix) and Good to have (as the name suggests). This will help you set your priorities and make development of your product an easier process too.
