In current role I am a QA engineer who does varieties of testing like Functional Verification testing which includes front end, back end and integration, API testing, automation of Build verification testing and cross component testing. Test execution,defect tracking, Fix pack testing etc
My Testing effort and output got me very good name as I found 100s of defects ( approx 200 + per year). It includes defects from varied areas right from design till implementation.
