Fortune 100 Insurance Firm
The systems we are designing are dense with complex content and subject to regulatory oversight. The Ultranauts team absorbed our complex requirements quickly and automated test cases in a scalable way. Other vendors specialize in our industry, but they do not bring the speed, intelligence, and flexibility we’ve experienced working with Ultranauts.
Production Innovation Lead
The client was gearing up to launch a commercial insurance underwriting platform. In order to validate that legally-binding state filings were being implemented correctly prior to launch, the client needed to access a rating API endpoint that returned a total premium only, without a rate card. With a near infinite number of possible premium combinations, a large number of permutations needed to be tested on a highly scalable automated testing solution to achieve testing coverage adequate to go live.
Ultranauts deployed a specialized quality engineering team with expertise in API test automation and data analytics, consisting of a QE lead, DevOps engineer and core group of quality engineers and testers. The team ramped up in under 10 days and have been working closely with the client’s underwriting team and development partner through MVP launch and product roll-out.
Ultranauts identified core rating elements to test in a combinatorial pattern covering a large span of permutations, leveraging the underwriting rules to establish an expected result.
After a rapid onboarding and set-up, the team built a test automation solution from the ground-up and evolved it continuously to increase coverage to 75,000 API tests per day while cutting the cycle time in half, which has helped diagnose a multitude of mission-critical errors.
