Test Engineers: A promising future awaits

The market for Testers/Test Engineers is currently experiencing strong growth, even internationally. Digitalization – with more web applications and connected products – is spurring demand for Testers. Companies are also becoming increasingly aware that software quality assurance is a business-critical activity. Testers with the right skills can expect a bright future in a rapidly expanding industry.

Software testing involves quality assurance of IT systems and ensuring that software meets requirements, for example on functionality, performance and security. Testers can also work with test automation and design of frameworks for automated tests, or areas such as requirements inspection and test strategies. The tester usually works in a team with systems developers and system administrators, as well as the client and sometimes even the end user.

Excellent opportunities for specialization

The move to increasingly complex systems means that new career opportunities are taking shape. As a Tester you can choose from a wide variety of career paths, both as a specialist and a leader. If you have technical expertise, working as a Test Automation Engineer or security tester could be right for you; if you are a good leader, a Test Manager or test strategist role is a suitable choice. The industry’s own certification programme, ISTQB (International Software Testing Quality Board), develops and offers training and internationally recognized certifications. National and international conferences also provide valuable learning and exchange of ideas in software quality assurance.
