Meet 4th Source's Talented Employees.

What is your role at 4th Source?

I am a senior QA analyst at one of our largest customers, a global pharmacy benefits management organization.

My work involves meeting quality standards for the client through different tests like functionality, performance, integration, regression, and more. I identify any bug, defect or system issue that could increase risk, and could impact other projects. Team work is essential for client satisfaction.



What do you love most about working with 4th Source? 

I love that the company adapts to new technologies and methodologies to meet client requirements. It makes us improve our skills and learn new ways to do a better job.



What is your most memorable moment at 4th Source? 

The most memorable moment for me was our first anniversary party because it was at a beautiful place with pool near the beach. We were singing happy birthday to a colleague while a photographer took pictures, and suddenly a cake war started. We ended up looking like blue avatars and it was so funny. We had the perfect combination of beach, sun, pool and sweet cake.



When you're not working at 4th Source, what can we find you doing?

I love traveling because I like to experience new places, customs, try different kinds of food, and meet new people. I have visited many beautiful cities here in Mexico. Any city has a lot of variety like beaches, rivers, waterfalls, cold weather, and places to go shopping.

I also do Pilates and workout because It helps me to feel better and relieve stress. Sometimes on the weekends I go hiking with my friends, but I love most to spend time with my cat, Nicky.


What were you doing before you joined 4th Source?

Before I joined 4th Source, I was in charge of system maintenance in an assurance company. After that I was working as a QA analyst at a small company based in Texas, and then I started to work at 4th Source. All of them were here in Mexico.



Where do you see your future?

I want to improve my QA skills, get a certification and be an excellent QA lead. I would like to start a family, to experience living in another city, and continue to travel around the world.
