Meet Kulwinder Singh, an Adventurous Tech Enthusiast and Nature-lover
A great friend and a greater colleague, Kulwinder Singh is the life of every party. His passions lie in testing, coding and learning more about accessibility.
Kulwinder Singh, Qualitest’s Accessibility Test Engineer from Noida, India, is a highly confident and motivated quality engineer who is passionate about everything tech.
He is also an animal lover who likes to stay close to nature. A great friend and a greater colleague, Kulwinder is the life of every party. His passions lie in testing, coding and learning more about accessibility.
“My passion drives my motivation. Whenever I feel sad or demotivated, I turn on my machines and start coding or testing. After a few minutes, I can feel my motivation levels going up. I strongly believe that motivational lectures or videos can only temporarily motivate you, but it is your passion that keeps you motivated at all times,” says Kulwinder.
Kulwinder has vision difficulties, therefore his first experience with a computer was much different than his peers. He fondly recalls his first time of discovering what he calls a magical device.
“I accessed a computer for the first time in my life at school. It was a truly phenomenal experience and it instantly got me curious to know more about computers, how to use them, and how they work, but given the limited facilities and the absence of accessibility options, I did not get a chance to learn about computers until much later.
It was in college when I actually got my hands on a friend’s laptop and finally started using the device to learn computers. Gradually it became a habit, which is when I decided to make a career in the IT field,” he adds.
Areas of expertise
Software testing and the Qualitest journey
For Kulwinder, the journey to Qualitest happened quite naturally as a result of the QAInfoTech acquisition.
“I joined QAInfoTech in November 2019, which was acquired by Qualitest in February 2021. As a non-sighted engineer, my journey was great with both QAInfoTech, and subsequently with Qualitest. I learned lots of valuable things. I never feel my vision limitations cause any hindrance, because my team and my managers are always supportive,” Kulwinder remarks.
Advice to the future generation of testers
Kulwinder feels that IT is a great field to work in given its competitive salaries, friendly work environment, and the constant chance to learn something new. He also stresses the importance of venturing into accessibility development and testing to make differently abled people feel more included in IT.
Life beyond software testing
When Kulwinder is not fiercely coding for his next big project, you can find him playing thriller games, watching entertaining videos, or planning the next adventurous trip with his friends.
The engineer in him often gives way to the travel bee as he loves journeying to unfamiliar places.
