I am proficient in testing software applications on entire phases ranging from design, programming, installation and maintenance. I can work with different tools in finding out if the software is working according to the needs of the clients. I keep clients' and users needs at the top of my 'to-do list.' This helps me in detecting any flaws and checking if the product user-friendly or not.

I can handle both white box and black box testing efficiently. I know to evaluate the programming structure and can track if the flow of information is properly passing from one command to another. If I find any design flaws once the testing is completed, I make a report and hand it over to the development team to make necessary changes. My knowledge in C++ and Java coding along with SQL database design can be beneficial to your company.
