Traineeship Test Professional

Traditionally, a software tester is someone who manually determines whether software meets the minimum requirements based on functional aspects.


However, in the current IT market, with the advent of methods such as Agile & DevOps and tools for test automation, there is a need for a new generation of software testers.

Important competences for these testers are communication skills, being a team player and having knowledge of automated testing.


The tester of the future relies on technology and performs based on feeling and insight. The tester will increasingly bridge the gap between IT and the business.
