Dear Recruiter

I’m submitting my enclosed resume for your kind consideration. I have a Bachelor’s degree in commerce, ISTQB certification and relevant experience in testing. I have excellent application knowledge of various methodologies like STLC, SDLC, Waterfall and Agile. Very recently, I was responsible for implementing JIRA for my entire onshore and offshore team.

My role involved leading all the testing activities in my organization & defining the standards and methodologies for the projects. My job was also to have a detailed interaction with our numerous internal and external clients, to maintain the balance between onshore and offshore teams and to communicate with the project managers.

I was also involved in the Change Management Process and represented Canada Technologies in the Weekly discussions & was also responsible for imparting trainings to the teams about the use of testing tools. I have tested many complex modules within the organization with utmost quality & created reports and analysis on the projects and provided support after go live activities. For one of the benefits project – Flex Plus, I was responsible for taking over the role of a BA for a short time as the project had no BA. I was responsible to create business requirement documents and use cases for some modules.

I’m looking forward to have an opportunity to meet you in person and better explain how my skills and knowledge can be of use to the organization.

Thank You

Samridhi Maggo
