Project Profile

The client is an American peer-to-peer lending marketplace connecting investors and borrowers. It operates at a lower cost than traditional bank lending programs and passes the savings on to borrowers in the form of lower rates and to investors in the form of solid returns. Needless to say, such financial services prioritize stability, functional correctness, and overall quality. To ensure that everything works efficiently with their rapidly growing user load they needed to optimize their testing process with automation.

Project Goals

  • Build a test automation infrastructure
  • Execute test automation basing on existing scenarios
  • Build both the backend and frontend

Business Needs

The exponential growth of the platform’s popularity obliged the client to steadily progress. To ensure increasing authority and loyalty it was required that they significantly enhance the quality of their services.
