Additionally, we offer comprehensive courses to equip all team members with the knowledge of the Testlio process, standards, and testing capabilities we offer.

Testlio seeks quality engineers with a high level of experience and expertise in software testing and quality assurance. Generally, we prefer quality engineers with at least 5 years of experience in software testing and quality assurance, and with a background in computer science, engineering, or a related field.
