Tester FAQ

  • What is Testlio?

    We have companies who want to test their app with us. We do this by getting a team of testers from our community and essentially creating a QA extension of that company. This way it feels as if you’re working with our customer and other testers.

  • Why is this better?

    QA isn’t JUST about finding bugs. It’s about improving the quality of the app. This isn’t done in a vacuum. Great testing takes time and collaboration and we know that. When you’re a tester with Testlio we encourage you to challenge yourself and find critical bugs. We’d rather you find one critical bug than 20 small ones. Quality > Quantity.

  • How do I get started/Invited to a project?

    The best way to become a tester with Testlio is to receive an invite from a highly rated Testlio tester. However, we always keep an eye out for new testers. Feel free to fill out the form at the bottom of this page and we will keep you in mind.

  • How much do I get paid?

    For the first project, your pay can range from $8 - $15 an hour. After that, your pay rate can increase depending on your bug submissions. Your rate can be limitless, but the highest we’ve seen so far is $35/hr.

  • What’s it like being a tester?

    You’ll be notified by e-mail that you’ve been invited to a project. From there you’ll be sent to the project dashboard which will have the latest build you’ll be testing, testing scope, and test cases. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask in the group chat on the right side. A tester, test lead, or QA manager will get back to you within hours.

  • How do the hours work?

    For each test cycle you’ll be given a number of hours to test. If you’ve been assigned two hours, you can complete those two hours at any time in the duration of the test cycle. So if you work in the morning and can only test in the evening, that’s completely okay. We made this to be flexible for you.

  • How do I get paid?

    We use Paypal and Payoneer for weekly payments. You can choose and connect your service provider to Testlio under your profile.

  • Do you care what tools we use?

    Nope. All we care about is your output. You can use whatever tools you’re comfortable with. You can work with other testers (we encourage you to do so) to find better bugs if you want.

  • What is my tester rating based on?

    Your tester rating is based on four factors:

    1. Bug depth - How critical were the bugs you reported?
    2. Timeliness - Did you submit the bugs on time?
    3. Ability to follow directions - Were the bugs you submitted in the scope of the test cycle?
    4. Report Quality - How clean and readable was your bug report? Could a five year old reproduce the bug?

    After the test cycle is over a Test Lead will rate you on these four areas. The higher your score is, the better your chances of being invited to more test cycles.
