  • Establish and improve architectural design of applications
  • Carry out the functional walk-through of the product with the Development team and Product Management
  • Contribute to product quality by giving inputs for the test strategy and write feasibility studies/analysis documents
  • Troubleshoot and investigate defects raised by our customers to ensure compliance of our products to the specifications and system integrity.
  • Collaborate with Product Management, Business Analysts, and Quality Assurance to create high quality products and enhancements
  • Contribute to innovation and product evolution by sharing with peers information such as industry trends & standards
