Prior to joining the uTest Community Management team in June of 2013, I had experience in the technical realm with other companies in areas including network management, but software testing was a whole new beast to me.
Thanks to meeting some of the greatest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with in our testing community, I quickly embraced the art of testing. Here’s a few things that I found out about testers during my time at uTest.
They are an observant bunch
I remember my first week in the uTest Forums very well. I introduced myself. People welcomed me with open arms. It was great. Then I said it was a pleasure getting to know more about QA. That didn’t go over so well with one of our testers who kindly pointed out that they weren’t in the business of QA — they were a tester!
If this all sounds negative — it’s far from the case. Just like software testers push clients to make their products better everyday with their critical feedback, they too made me a better Community Manager by pushing me everyday to do better.
