ABSTRACT

Title: QA Engineer: More than a testing hero of fintech in emerging markets

As most of us know, fintech is a rapidly growing industry that has a major impact and advantages but has many challenges as well. In today's fast-paced environments, QA Engineer has a vital role not only for ensuring the quality of the product and the processes but for the engagement with the client and support where and when this is needed. Things are getting more difficult and more challenging at the same time when fintech is applied on emerging markets. We are going to check the soft skills and technical skills of QA engineer who is involved in such projects and the techniques that are used to overcome all the obstacles. We are also going to present automation of testing (using tools like python and pytest) that helps to speed up the above processes. In the end, we are going to talk about the contribution of a fintech QA engineer to the design of the product(s) and update of product’s specifications and requirements based on QA engineer feedback.
