    Our campers will be trained with real-life assignments. Just to give you an idea about the QA Automation program, you will start using JIRA and TestRail for particular projects and Jenkins Access to build jobs. You should also be reviewing code and taking it until the merger. Additionally, you will be getting a backlog of work and writing scripts.

  • How do you drive a team of QA automation architects, located in different cities and time-zones, to be productive and deliver quality testing services?


    One of our differentiators is that we know how to bring talented people together, from different cultures and time-zones. We have developed an online productivity tool that helps remote workers manage their time more efficiently and receive a fair working environment.
