There are kids who want to solve the Rubik’s cube, and there are kids who also want to take the damn thing apart and look at every piece. If you were the second kind of kid, we think you might love our Software Quality Assurance (Software QA) program.
Every year thousands of companies are pushing out tons of products, from medical software that saves lives to apps that will put a cat’s nose and ears on your selfie. (It’s an incredible time to be alive.) Whether those products run smoothly or are maddeningly glitchy has everything to do with software QA and great QA testers.
These warriors show up day in and day out trying to break what’s been placed in front of them. But they aren’t sadists. They take what they learn and use it to make the world a better place through software testing.
