uTest Revamps Tester Profiling to Better Match Web, Desktop & Mobile Testing Projects With Global Community

Crowdsourcing QA Leader Re-Profiles Testers' Hardware & Software, Experience, Skills & Demographics

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, today launched Version 2.6 of its platform, which includes a dramatically improved tester profile. This new version will enable uTest to more precisely match customers' web, desktop, and mobile app testing needs with the right members of its global QA community. The uTester community also benefits from this update as testers can more accurately define for which types of projects they are best suited.

After capturing basic demographic information (location, age, gender, languages, experience), the new profile enables testers to define their hardware/software, experience and skills, including:

  • Web & Desktop Devices: Testers add their computer(s), such as OS version & language, firewall, anti-malware; and specify their web browser(s), including IE, Firefox, Chrome, etc.

  • Mobile, Gaming & Other Devices: Testers specify their mobile handset maker, handset model, OS, and wireless carrier; and denote gaming consoles, audio players and digital readers

  • Automated Testing Tools: Testers select which automated tools they have experience using (e.g. TestComplete, jMeter, QTP, Selenium, ClearQuest, etc.)

  • Coding Languages: Testers specify which coding languages they have experience using (e.g. Java, Flash, Ruby, C++, .NET, Python, ASP, etc.)

  • Industry Experience, Interests & Hobbies: Testers detail application experience by industry (e.g. finance, retail, e-commerce, etc.) and interests/hobbies (e.g. arts, sports, stocks, etc.)

"As our customers' applications become more varied and sophisticated, so too do their requests for testers with specific criteria, such as handsets, languages, locations and industry expertise," said Doron Reuveni, uTest CEO. "With our revamped tester profiles, uTest makes it even easier for web, desktop, and mobile customers to find the right testers in real time. This is a major leap forward for uTest and further extends our leadership in human software testing."
