    Software and Process Quality Assurance | Technical/Creative Writer

    Philippines - Tests: 6

    Ivan is a quality oriented individual that focuses on satisfying the client and end-users with their requested products. He is also a big fan of the English written form and is an aspiring writer, although he currently has no published works. Ivan has formally worked as a Games application QA for Gameloft, PH. He started as a rank and file tester and was later elevated to a Trainer position. This new position enabled Ivan to gather more information regarding the QA process, and not just the basic testing that needs to be done. During his stay at Gameloft, Ivan has worked on more than 10 projects, including ,but not limited, to the following: * Block breaker deluxe 3 * N.O.V.A 1 and 2 * Playful Minds * Asphalt 4 * Fairy Town * Kingdoms and Lords * and more.. Ivan left Gameloft to pursue a career on a startup company located near his home. This company was named Menue, and it was still a mobile applications development company. Ivan soon realized that the company was in need of processes as well, so he researched and brought forth certain SDLC-Agile "friendly" QA processes. The Menue studio was later bought by a Japanese company, TOSE. And here Ivan still continued his work on ensuring Quality for the company's many clients. Ivan has gained a lot of knowledge and skills that are valued in any QA related post (not just software): a keen eye for details, a customer/client focused mindset, the ability to completely see the project in multiple perspectives (business, developer, qa, user, client and passersby), a quick mind for educated decisions, and more. Ivan is now currently looking for other opportunities to further feed his relentless mind with its need for knowledge.
