Warning to Details
If you are prompted for ten tests for each test, you will see some error. This is also the case if all testers have exactly the same experience and knowledge. This often points to how the tester looks at something (attention to detail). While at first glance something looks good, but with a closer look, we can see errors. The attention to detail is what makes a good tester a good tester.
During daily tasks, a software tester will always have time when the tester has to talk to others, more often than with software developers. When discussing a bug with a developer, the tester should always keep in mind that he finds a bug in the developer's work. Diplomacy skills are key to any software tester, as they are most important in building and maintaining a healthy working relationship with the development team. The bad link between software testers and developers can negatively affect software development and may pose unnecessary risks to the project.
Software testers working for outsourced QA companies often find themselves transformed by various projects that today can include web, mobile, smart products, and wearable technology. Upgrading to the product saves valuable time during the development lifecycle. Sometimes you have to test software that has no documentation. Therefore, the software tester should be able to reveal the software and quickly extract the necessary information. This key information can be used to create a test plan, test cases, or QA estimates.
It's easy to spot those software testers who are passionate about testing the software. Generally, they find more bugs, and during the meetings they are enthusiastic not only on the tested product but also on testing the software in general. Customers are much more likely to hire software testers who are enthusiastic about their product. On the flip side, software testers who do not show enthusiasm quickly emerge and always show QA their quality of work.
A great software tester can see the whole product and recognize the mind – the order of the target audience. This capability is extremely useful for reporting problems that end-users may find otherwise after the product is released. Another aspect of business orientation is the ability to understand why we introduce a particular function and apply this knowledge to their testing. This information can improve the testing you are doing and give you richer results. The tester should also be able to assess the deadlines to be respected (and as often happens), QA may result in reduced time. Understanding the business impact of flexibility and expiration is extremely important for the relationship between the test team and other stakeholders.
There are no specific criteria on what the world's best software is, as each company or project has a different requirement or goal than the software engineer needs to achieve. The QA team's experience in testing a number of software products for our customers around the globe has been a great insight into the testers with which we needed to succeed in these projects.
