About me

I am an experienced Software Engineer and a Software Quality Professional, with 15+ years of experience.

Advocate for Software Quality and Software Engineering Professional

I’m a versatile and forward-thinking leader specializing in Software Engineering, Test Automation and Quality Assurance. I’m also experienced in planning, implementing, and overseeing key improvements to drive business growth and efficiency.

Started my career as a software developer in Sri Lanka, and studies software engineering at graduate level while continuing to work as a developer. Later, changed roles to become a Quality assurance engineer and a Test automation engineer. Then as a QA manager and a release manager I got to experience and the privilege to be a vital part of the evolution from older software practices and processes to latest processes and methodologies and cloud based scalable solutions. I have been part of the team that provided process and quality guidelines, as well as implement those at different stages.
