    Software Engineer @ Push Technology (Contract)

    My time at Push Technology consisted of developing and maintains the company’s automated testing framework for their Diffusion product which was built using Java. While at Push technology I developed test cases for bugs which may have been found within the product this was written in both Java and JavaScript. The company helped me to strengthen my knowledge with the Java programming language and also gain new knowledge with the Java. My date to day activities included writing test plans for both functional and non-functional testing. The Diffusion product has given me a huge insight into data distribution on a wide range of platforms such as windows and Linux.

    Junior automated tester @ Amelco UK Ltd (Contract)

    During my time at the company I have developed several tools using Java working with swing, JSP and using multi-threading logic for testing. I also wrote a couple of J-unit test cases for the Amelco Trading System (ATS) platform. During testing of the ATS I used Linux quite a lot to be able to go into the logs and find any errors that appeared on the ATS system or if there were any errors being sent from integration partners to ATS such as OpenBet along with managing different frameworks of ATS. Also using tools such as JIRA and TestRail helped me to keep track of testing and manage test cases. My main time at Amelco consisted of Black and Grey box testing and writing test case with results of the tests completed on ATS clients. While I was at Amelco I managed to work with several other technologies apart from Java such as Python, Jetty, Postgres SQL and some Bash scripting. Amelco was a great company to work with as it helped further enhance my development and testing skills as well as introduce me to new skills and also to work with interesting people.
