Employment History

September 2016 - Date

The Ikooba Technologies (

Independent ICT and Quality Assurance consultant

The Ikooba project is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system locally developed and serves a host of businesses both in the public, private and non-profit organizations in the areas of business transparency and performance management. I have been a key player from the initiation phase in March 2015 until now. I have played an advisory role especially in technology-related matters where decisions have to be made in choosing the right technologies that would improve the ERP platform and make it become a very essential tool in any institution. Along with the advisory role as an IT consultant, in practice, I work as the Quality Assurance consultant using global best practices in Quality Assurance and Software Testing in making sure every component of the IT infrastructure being deployed is assessed and meets the expected standard, is bug-free or at least does not contain any bug of critical severity status.

June 2016 – Present

Application Tester with Ubertersters

I have been working with Ubertesters (, a global crowd-testing platform, testing varied software solutions of different sizes and shapes especially web, mobile and games applications along with team members in different geographical locations. On the assigned projects carried out so far, software defects were detected on the application (s) being tested, the defects are appropriately documented highlighting their severity levels and forwarded to Test Managers and / or developers to work to fix the defects and returned for further system or regression tests. This system of testing has helped to identify even hidden software bugs that could have escapes the attention of developers and even other testers as many testing professional work on it at the same. It improves not only efficiency in software functionality but also reduces time-to-market as quality products are delivered on time. More lessons and experiences have been gained in this testing approach.

Projects completed with Ubertesters include:

Message Delivery for some telephone mobile carriers within a specific time frame (Numerous times)
