I know… these two words aren’t seen very often in today’s world.
As a marketplace, uTest builds supply (testers) and demand (customers) for software testing services. And since we have 15,000+ testing pros from 152 countries around the world, we usually have more than enough supply. But as uTest grows, we do run into scenarios where demand grows faster than supply.
This is exactly what has happened in mobile during 2009. In the past three months, dozens of companies have come to uTest to get their mobile apps tested. And, while we have a lot of mobile testers around the globe, we need more. So consider this a very public announcement that uTest has mobile app testing work available and we are actively looking for more testers to keep up with demand.
If you are a testing pro (or if you know someone who is) who wants to make some extra money for testing iPhone, Blackberry and Android apps, sign up as a tester today. For our current crop of QA pros, update your profile to tell us which mobile devices you own.
In many cases, mobile testing offers bigger payout than web or desktop app testing. For example, a recent Blackberry app release is paying a guaranteed $100 for a completed test script, plus $20 for each approved bug. While payment varies by release, the point is a tester can make good money in just a few hours of heads-down testing.
Currently, our most urgent need for mobile testers is in Europe, but with the way demand has been growing, we are soliciting mobile testers in the US, Canada, South America and Australia as well.
If you know of QA pros or developers who are willing and able to test mobile apps, send them a link to this post. Likewise, if you know of websites, message boards, forums or e-newsletters where uTest can advertise to find more mobile QA professionals, drop me a comment.
