Saumyashree Nath

Quality Engineer

Growing up in a small village of Odisha, I had always been a good student. But, being a small-town girl, chasing my dreams was definitely a challenge. However, my parents always wanted me to grow up as an independent individual. Armed with their enormous support and my constant determination, my journey towards success became much easier.

My love for science and mathematics made me opt for IT as a specialization during B.Tech. During my graduation days, I developed a huge interest in learning about various topics related to software. I always delved deep into them to explore more and this kickstarted my journey into the software industry.

After graduation, I worked in a product-based company for nearly 4 years and getting a hang of the corporate culture was a hurdle that I overcame. HashedIn by Deloitte became my second workplace in 2018, and since then, it has been a splendid experience. Currently, I am a Quality Engineer-III, and my job is to oversee all the QA activities of assigned projects. I also lead the Java track for HU and help in QA/SDET training of the HUEx program. I enjoy my role as I get to find bugs, and suggest improvements, which contribute to the quality of the product. Software testing is all about looking at a product from multiple angles, with different perspectives and testing it with different expectations. 

My workdays are always productive and involve a great deal of communication. I always ensure to connect with my team members regularly in order to have a smooth sign off before every release. Although I enjoy my current role thoroughly, I would love to consider changing my career track soon.  

My professional journey so far has both small and big milestones. One of them is working on projects from scratch and finding the most critical issues in the initial phase, leading to successful release of products on time. In my last project, I managed both quality and business analysis, apart from helping the team members understand the requirements, assisting them in RCA (Root cause analysis) of the issues. Receiving positive feedback from clients and team members for the projects I have worked on has been a great achievement. During my tenure at HashedIn by Deloitte, I have been honored with Spot awards, Top Impactor and a promotion. As of now, I look forward to finishing some more certifications.

HashedIn by Deloitte’s flexible and diverse work culture has helped me balance my professional and personal lives wonderfully. Apart from managing strict project deadlines and taking up certification courses, I enjoy cooking, and playing indoor games during my free time. Also, during the pandemic, watching movies and TV shows became an everyday thing. Spending time with family helps me stay calm and positive.

I believe one should always be focused and self-motivated. Success doesn’t come easy. Every time life threw a challenge at me, I fought back hard. Instead of allowing failure to affect me negatively, I aim to keep learning to excel in my career.
