Senior QA Engineer / Business Analyst

Preventive Medicine

A medical IT startup company that specialzes in an interactive online application that helps Insurance providers aid their covered customers in preventing terminal illnesses. My duties were that of a QA Engineer / Business analyst, I was first involved in gathering requirements and augmenting them for use case purpouses. I then created use cases within our wiki environment, afterwhich I created intricate flow diagrams which would later be exported as xml files and parsed into Lisp backend loigc code. From there my QA duties would take over and I wrote test plans, test cases, and testing requirements. My QA Lead and I have built the QA environment from the ground up. I was responsible for the performance / load testing tool Tsung (on our Unix server image Open-source), installing and configuring the GUI for Tsung on the Linux server image, and also all of the automation duties dealing with Quick Test Professional. I also installed and administered our bug tracking and test case management tool Spiratest as well as tied it into the Jira development tracking environment. My area of concentration lately has been ramping up on Quick Test Professional and building a few data driven regression suites for the company.

I'll miss everyone at Preventive Medicine, it was a great team of very talented and dedicated IT professionals.
