" Amol is a truly great QA engineering lead and team member. We worked together on a number of projects in the My Account area of and over several years. Amol goes over and above what a QA lead would do, and his dedication to the team has really helped us deliver quality features. He takes the time to understand what we're doing and helps other orthogonal teams as well. On another note, he self-organizes teambuilding activities such as potlucks, which everyone appreciates! "

" Amol joined a project as our QA lead midway thru its completion and really took the reins to help bring it to the finish line. He quickly came up to speed on the use cases and created corresponding test cases. He also coordinated with the internal team to ensure environment issues and other priorities were handled in a timely manner to maximize efficiency. Lastly unlike many other tech leads, Amol confidently presented each test case to our business stakeholders as part of UAT and effortlessly fielded questions and took in feedback to be addressed with respective teams. We honestly could not have completed this project on time and defect-free without him! Thank you for all your hard work and dedication! "

" I have had the pleasure of working with Amol at Macys. He is one of the very few QA leads I have worked with who thinks outside the box. He goes above and beyond to test not just from an acceptance criteria or happy path point of view. He thinks in terms of the user and always asks the question how can we make our product more usable. He is also a great team player and is always willing to help and mentor others. He took the lead on deploying a really huge project at Macys. He helped conduct the UAT sessions that required stakeholders to sign off. He was very process oriented and was on top of things. From someone who led that project, I must say he made my life and everyone’s life so much easier. I will be more than happy to work with him again and I'm sure he is an asset to any team he works at in the future "
