Prior testing experience can be advantageous, however, the specific experience requirements vary depending on the type of testing involved. For instance, in functional testing and localization testing, we typically validate the necessary skills with certifications or relevant courses. Nonetheless, we are open to individuals with no prior experience in software testing and provide opportunities for them to join our team. 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.

Testlio Functional Regression Testing Certification requires good knowledge and skill in functional regression testing capability. With this certification we want to make sure that candidates are familiar with the Testlio platform, are capable of following the instructions and scope of the run, and know how to report issues and perform issue reproductions per Testlio standards.

Testlio offers a flexible schedule for freelancers, and the expected workload can vary depending on individual factors such as experience, availability, language skills, and device list. Our freelancers’ workload can range from a few hours per week to up to 30-40 hours per week, depending on the individual’s preferences and the needs of clients.

The Testlio platform supports a wide range of testing types, including functional, regression, exploratory, usability, payments, localization, and analytics testing. Sometimes freelance testers can be asked to perform different kinds of testing during the runs, if they have the necessary skills, e.g. functional and localization.

At Testlio, we pay our testers by the hour (not by the bug). This helps us provide the best tester experience and the best results for our clients. All approved task payments are made weekly via Payoneer or PayPal.
