I recently completed a two year project as Lead QA Analyst testing and assisting in the implementation of fixed-income instruments onto the Charles River Development order management system and Eagle Star / Pace accounting engine and data warehouse for TIAA-CREF.
In my Lead QA role, I assisted in the development of a Win Runner automation script which enabled us to submit spreadsheet-based fixed income test trades for thirty fixed-income security types into the CRD application (two trades per minute) and to document the transaction processing results.After profiling the instruments held in the portfolios coming onto the new platform, I coordinated the integration and user-acceptance testing cycles involving forty internal and external stakeholder areas
In addition to my testing lead role at TIAA-CREF, I helped to define the overall CRD/Eagle fixed income portfolio migration testing strategy, and helped to build a catalog of Asset Management Department regression test scenarios.I was responsible for collecting and submitting the required SDLC and SOX artifacts including business and IT sign-offs prior to the go-live date of each conversion phase.
In addition to testing Charles River transaction processing and its downstream impact on other applications, I also tested in the following areas at TIAA-CREF:
- Internal MQ messaging of CRD trades being sent to Eagle PACE, and externally for TBA mortgage-backed securities being transmitted to Fixed Income Clearing Corp. (FICC).
- Internally developed corporate actions processing application
- Internally developed portfolio manager biographical reporting application used for prospectus filings.
Prior to my most recent assignment, I implemented a Liquidity Risk reporting application at Societe Generale in accordance with Basel II Accord guidelines using programming resources in Bangalore. India (1 year) , and also implemented a web-based performance reporting application (Investment Scorecard) in the Advisory Services, Broker Dealer and Prime Broker business units at Bear Stearns & Co.
I am searching for a full-time or long-term consulting position where I can grow within the organization and apply my interpersonal, financial and system development skills.
