Lead Automation Engineer
Prashant is one of the best things that happened to my team at MoEngage. He joined us at an early stage, took over many of my responsibilities with no hand-holding, which allowed us to partner and bring the best of both the worlds of exploratory (manual) and automation testing. Year after year, Prashant helped us evangelize and improve the way - we certify our product quality - the way we expand our teams (we grew from 3 to 24 in last 3 years just in my team, and for a lead in quality, every single person joining in engineering is also like a new joiner to onboard to the quality principles and nurture until they start believing and following. Having Prashant made it all feasible. We have been through those rough times, we sailed, we failed, we got up again and we emerged as better individuals and team) - helping us implementing enjoyable value-driven practices like bug bashes, DRE, transparent metrics - the way we keep our team highly motivated even in tough times and grow together. As a company grows in terms of the team size as well, it starts getting harder to put the right and effective quality principles in place and bring value out of them each time. And if I could keep the bar of the quality high then its most credit goes to Prashant for meticulously making it agile with all the stakeholders and the team culture we built together.
He leads by example, brings the best out of everyone, keeps a tab on growth for individuals, and does all of these maintaining the culture of fun and respect for each other. I like to especially thank him for getting my team to earn the respect for the impact and results. He is always going to be my dream teammate. And I don't think I lead him. In actuality, it's him, whose right mindset, right planning, execution, transparency, and trust that lead me to do more and bring back to our partnership and achieve the common org goal "Quality". Personally, he is respectful, empathetic, with the right intentions, and easily becomes a go-to friend, everyone who worked with him will agree to it. Effective communication, awesome ability to articulate, fun approach, optimistic are the key attributes that I always like to learn from him. We worked hard and partied harder with his fun-filled planning.
Super proud, and happy to have worked with him. Highly recommended!
