Here at uTest, we strive to have a variety of testers that can provide our customers with an in-depth and well-rounded report. We encourage testers of any demographic to join our community.
However, only 27% of our community has indicated that they are female. This is a rather disappointing statistic, as the female testers we do have, have contributed very valuable material to us.
There are many challenges unique to female testers. The genetic differences that may allow gender to affect testing are mostly irrelevant to us. What is relevant is a job well-done. However, we do run test cycles where customers specifically request female testers.
We have had some really cool opportunities with wearables and other devices that have been exclusively female. As we grow, we will continue to post projects like these where female testers can get their chance to shine.
