What does a QA manual tester do
Technology and the software that drives it informs much of what we do in our modern lives, and is present in many of the services and products we use. From communicating with others, to operating our numerous devices, appliances, modes of transportation, and performing an exhaustive range of other applications relevant to every day life, we are increasingly reliant on technology that functions well, and hopefully provides an accelerated UX. Quality assurance refers to the role undertaken by junior software testers, QA engineers, and manual testing professionals. It involves working in close communication with software developers, architects, and marketers, to ensure a finished product that is of the highest error-free standard possible. As just about every corner of any industry now relies on quality assurance manual testers, in conjunction with automated quality assurance, to test their product, the scope for personal and professional development that arises from manual QA tester training is almost infinite.
Manual testers in high demand
Manual testing jobs provide a junior manual tester and our fortunate Test Pro graduates, with high earning potential, greater employment security, and the potential to upskill and work in other affiliated roles. As was discussed in a Forbes Technology Council review, manual tester jobs have a secure and lucrative future in the industry, as the quality assurance processes performed by humans cannot be accurately and effectively replicated by robotic process automation, machine learning, and AI.
Manual tester advantages over automated testing include:
- cost effective, especially for smaller jobs
- can complete random testing
- can incorporate human emotion and thought
- produces less errors
- applicable to more test situations
- no programming knowledge required
- more easily adapted than test scripts
Test Pro’s manual tester bootcamp thus provides the basis for a career change that could see you earning more, experiencing elevated job satisfaction and security, and engaging in an expanding industry that provides a range of exciting professional prospects for your future.
