Meet Anshika, our Quality Assurance Team Lead, who discusses the importance of her role, being valued, connecting with her team, and her love for Southern California.
Tell us about your role at Kion.
I am a QA Team Lead at Kion. As a Lead, I am responsible for the Quality Assurance team, who is responsible for end-to-end testing for both existing and new features of the Kion application. We run regression suites and use the results to maintain the integrity of the automation scripts, debugging automated tests and increasing the efficiency of those tests. We also review and analyze requirements to develop test scenarios and create comprehensive plans.
Presently we are working on comprehensive Accessibility Testing to ensure Kion is fully accessible to all users.
How do you prefer to start your day?
By saying 'Good Morning' to my team!
What has your experience been with our company culture?
Kion is one of the best companies I have worked with! I love the strong-knit team culture. We are a very diverse group of individuals but are still aligned with similar morals and values. Employees are not just a number, and everyone's opinion matters here.
Which benefits are your favorite and why?
Family insurance, fully covered by the company, is one of the best benefits Kion has. To me, this shows that Kion cares not only about its employees but their loved ones too.
What parts of our mission do you connect with?
I connect most with our company value, "Take ownership of individual efforts but work as a team." We all take ownership of our work and understand the responsibilities, but we always try to connect and help each other on the team.
What sets your role at Kion apart from previous positions?
At Kion, the Lead title is not just a name - it comes with significant responsibilities, which I enjoy. I am motivated to take on more challenges in my current role.
What's the unique part about working here?
Team members appreciate each other. We believe that if a teammate is doing something worth recognizing, we should tell them that "you make us better."
What's your favorite Slack channel at Kion?
"Random" is my favorite Slack channel, where we have fun chats and discuss out-of-work topics, daily news, etc.
What keeps you busy outside of work hours?
My daughter and Goldendoodle keep me busy! I love spending time with them.
What's your favorite way to unwind after a long week?
I love spending time on the beautiful sunny beaches in Southern California.
