Test Analyst - Quality Engineering & Assurance

Can you tell us about your responsibilities?
As a Test Analyst my role is to ensure the quality of a client's solution. I am responsible for the creation and distribution of market information and advice, delivered to both desktop and mobile platforms. This data is written by expert market analysts, and distributed to hundreds of advisors, who in turn advise thousands of clients around the world, regarding their investments. My responsibilities are to analyse and challenge the requirements specification of a project, create test cases that will verify the application under test, and report, track and retest the defects that the test cases reveal.

What inspires you at work every day?
I work with an energetic team, focused on collaboration and driven by results. Daily, I communicate with dedicated people involved in all aspects of the lifecycle of the product. We don't just blindly do the job before us, but look at ways of improving the process which will reduce both cost and risk to projects. Transparency, collaboration, open-mindedness; these are things that contribute to a satisfying day at work.

Do you have any tips for someone who is thinking about joining our team?
Cognizant is large, dynamic and successful. There are massive opportunities. Find out what you need to do to take advantage of them. On your first day, you will get a buddy, so I suggest you ask questions: verticals, horizontals, acronyms — you need to know this stuff, so ask! Challenge the status quo; continually improve your processes. Find out who to contact to overcome resistance — use the support that Cognizant can provide.

Can you tell us about your responsibilities?
My responsibility in Cognizant is to help our clients excel in the digital world, by providing advice and solutions in my field of expertise.

The daily challenge we face is in maintaining an easy, intuitive and fluid user experience without sacrificing the usability of the product, a challenge in which we excel thanks to a competent and highly skilled team.

What also inspires me is working with the latest technologies and facing constant new challenges to solve. My area of expertise is a continuous innovative field that never stops evolving. Every day is a day to learn something new, and that's what makes it interesting.

Anthony Corbaz

Client Partner - Life Sciences

Can you tell us about your responsibilities?
My role, as Client Partner, is to look after the long-term relationship with our clients. Since 2011, I have been in charge of several of our Life Sciences clients in Switzerland. Being “in charge” for a client means a lot of responsibilities, namely leading all interaction, driving business growth within that account, being accountable for all projects and deliveries (with the eventual escalations that ensue from problematic projects) as well as owing the P&L account, on which we are measured at the end of the year. As a key interface between the client and Cognizant, the Client Partner has an important role of representing the client towards Cognizant as well as Cognizant towards the client, and ensuring that a client’s needs result in targeted services we can offer and deliver to them.

What inspires you at work every day?
My role is primarily about human interaction and as such, I never know when I get up in the morning what awaits me during the day. My prime motivation comes from the fact that I work on building a long-term, sustainable and mutually profitable relationship. Building client relationships is a never-ending activity, and months of efforts can be ruined in a second. On the other hand, it is so gratifying to see this relationship lead to trust and to a partnership that extends to all levels of our respective companies. It is like seeing a child grow!

Do you have any tips for someone who is thinking about joining our team?
In a world of rapid technological changes, in an environment that may be new to many, it is sometimes difficult to explain to our family members and friends what we do every day. We are not bankers, lawyers, doctors or carpenters. We work in a very virtualised service environment. Yet I can ensure you that the gratification you get from working for one of the best IT Consulting & Services companies in the world far outweighs the concerns of being faced with the unknown. My 6.5 years at Cognizant have been a life experience that I would not change for anything.

Sergio Candela

Technical Lead - Cognizant Infrastructure Services

Can you tell us about your responsibilities?
As a member of the Environment Management team located in Zurich, our main goal is to make test environments more readily available, and to ensure developers and testers have no troubles or concerns with the environment where they are working on a daily basis. What does it exactly mean? We provide knowledge and expertise, and we are the link between the applications and infrastructure teams which carries out activities such as the creation of new test environments, tests, deployments, configuration management, automation, process improvements, troubleshooting, environment migration, change management, and so on. Why should a developer have to worry about the process of opening a port in a firewall? We make it so that developers only have to develop, and most of the environmental requirements and requests go through us.

What inspires you at work every day?
I have different sources of inspiration. I can say that I really love making people feel happy and comfortable, in life and at work. My inspiration grows day by day every time I start the journey, and I know that if I do things well, our stakeholders will be happy in their daily tasks. Developers and testers won’t face any issues, so they will be happy! Another important source of inspiration has been there since the day I joined Cognizant: it is one of the biggest IT companies in the world, and it is growing rapidly year after year; therefore Cognizant’s success and satisfaction are also our satisfaction. I am very happy to be part of this puzzle. In addition, you can really develop your career within Cognizant!

Do you have any tips for someone who is thinking about joining our team?
Just be open, honest and happy. And offer the best of yourself. Be motivated to improve things, because the better you do, the happier and more comfortable the people around you will be.

What inspires you at work every day?
