Automation Quality Assurance Analyst (Former Employee), Oakville, ON – December 10, 2013
Pros: very flexible schedule for work and very close to home.
Working at Evault really helped me develop in the QA and IT field. The management was great and gave me the tools to thrive in this field. I started off at Evault as a co-op student from Sheridan College. I did a four month work term with Evault and after the four months was completed I graduated and received my Ontario College Diploma in Computer Programmer. I was then hired on with Evault for another two four month contracts. During these contracts, I worked to prove my worth within the company. I succeeded in my goal of landing a full-time position within the company. Some of my duties at Evault included: • Work in a team atmosphere. • Write bug reports often (with Test Track Pro). • Write test plans often (often with Test Link). • Test company’s main application manually. • Write tests in C# to automatically test company’s main application daily. • Fix any broken tests written by me or my team. • Use SQL often when using databases. • Perform maintenance on auto test machines, physical and virtual. • In charge of maintaining good results daily as well as reporting my findings. • Create scripts using powershell and python to assist automation environment • Use VMware products such as vSphere, vCenter, vConverter to create VMs and maintain VMs for automation purposes
I loved the people I worked with as well as the constant change in my job. I have had to learn many new things on the job such as Python scripting, powershell scripting, VMWare products, and Windows Azure to name a few. I enjoy learning new tools and programming languages that aid me in my field and I am a fast learner so it worked really well for me at Evault.
