Ayesha Akhter

Quality Assurance Engineer

QA testing, UI designing and learned some updated soft skills with this amusing company who creates real life usage apps to websites. I have learned the practical knowledge of Angular, Native Script, Github, Webflow, Adobe XD to develop apps and websites like jotto, jotto web app, I’m Getting Arrested, ODI. My most concentrated area was QA testing using Jasmine, Karma and Cypress to test Blackout and Jotto Web apps. As part of my duty, I have worked individually and as a team to test and debug the issues found on apps, some frontend development with UI design and so on .

Developed demo landing page named REACH for a client using code , develop a fully funtional website and coming soon webpage using Webflow for another client. I have also created a demo web feed version of Jotto to display card components for individual channels using code and, developed a Jotto Demo following page that would show up when you would like to follow a channel on the web based version. Finally, I have redeveloped the Quadrant 2 website with newer features from the older version  and also  the bystander website using Webflow.

Rafid Karim

Full Stack Engineer

I had the amazing opportunity of interning at Quadrant 2. The sheer amount of breathtaking tech and knowledge I gained in such a short period of time still seriously shocks me when I think about it. A quick rundown of some of the work I have done during this short period: developing the Jotto Web App, a browser port for Jotto, development and implementation of AWS lambda functions that update data points within our database in real time, and an app that I built from the ground up : the revamp of I’m Getting Arrested in NS8. The environment was genuinely amazing and the staff are some of the best people I have met.
