A Quality Assurance or QA tester is responsible for analysing and reviewing new software or existing programs for any defects. They run various tests to ensure that these applications meet all policies and guidelines as advised by a specific organisation and governing bodies before it is then approved to be marketed to consumers. Essentially, they ensure that products or services are ready for the end user; they are the “proofreaders” of an organisation’s consumer merchandise and goods.
QA tester duties and tasks can include:
These technical tasks are particularly well-suited to being outsourced as they are repetitive and rules-based, requiring a high level of attention to detail. Organisations free up their local tech teams time by sending specialist IT tasks to outsourced QA testers. This allows your onshore team to focus on higher value work that makes a real difference to your bottom line.
TALK TO US
Quality assurance testers are constantly measuring, reporting and cross-checking previous findings on past tests before reaching a final, approved product verdict. To do this effectively, they need to be detail-oriented and have strong analytical skills to spot faults and defects. Strong decision making and good judgement skills provide the necessary expertise required to liaise with designers, engineers and other personnel to create applications that will meet consumer expectations.
Outsourcing services recruit QA testers the same way an internal, talent acquisition team would. Essentially, they ask the same questions to understand whether these offshore candidates would be able to provide the level of quality required by Australian organisations:
In terms of qualifications, a higher education degree or certificate in computer information science or computer science is desirable. Further accreditations from professional QA associations or testing software manufacturing companies can ensure recognised experts. Outsourcing companies can help you find the right candidate to meet your organisation's tech support requirements by hiring these specialists who have an eye for perfection:
