Hello! This is Mahesh. Software Tester, Community Builder, Blogger, Traveler, and a Family man from Mumbai, India.
Currently working as Senior Test Manager at Zycus Infotech, Mumbai since last 7+ years. Have done my Engineering in Information Technology from Pune University before that. Talking more about Zycus journey, my USP here is my fast-paced and unorthodox way of testing, problem-solving ability and my awesome team which I built from scratch.
I have this wish which I want to achieve someday, and that is to play the biggest possible role in Changing Software Testing Space in India to a lot better version. I always believed this can be done by spreading more and more awareness across the Testers, getting them together and helping us as a community to grow better. With this same goal, I have initiated a community initiative called The Test Tribe. The thing I am most excited about when I look at future.
I love to motivate people, drive things, lead to make-it-big at every stage. I believe these are the things which have given me whatever tiny bit of Success I have experienced in my Testing career so far. I find Curiosity, Zeal to learn new things and Hunger for Creation as my driving forces in life. More than anything else, my thirst for learning and introspection over years, I believe have helped me evolve at a personal and professional level. It has helped me become a better Human being than before. I am also someone who is always keen to do things with utmost perfection; sometimes it sucks, most of the times it works.
To talk more about my achievements as a Software Tester, I have been awarded as ‘Destructive QC of the Year’ award at Zycus Annual Award function in 2013. Over last few years I got nominated in ‘Best Manager’ category as well. Reached in the final few in Agile Testing Alliance’s testing hackathon called BugATAhon, in 2015. A year later in 2016 won first prize in another testing hackathon, Bugasur Mumbai chapter.
Pretty much sums me up !!!Traveling, Reading, Hotelling, Surfing the web, Watching movies, Being with my Family are the things I love apart from my work.
For Me, having my own .com was one of my Wish-List items and also a medium to connect with WWW world where I can share my view about things I relate to or wish to. I see myself writing mostly about Software Testing, Travelling, Technology and Life in general.
If you have any feedback to share or any questions to ask, if you have any Software Testing or Leadership problem to discuss, or if you have any business idea or plan to discuss, I will be more than happy to be at receiving end. Let’s connect.
