Frequently Asked Questions
- When should you hire a QA engineer?
You should consider hiring a QA consultant when you are in the development phase of a software project. This can ensure that quality is built into the software from the very beginning.
It’s also important to hire a QA team when developing a mission-critical software that will be used by a large number of users. A good tester can confirm that the software is reliable by identifying any bugs before users suffer from poor quality.
Lastly, a QA engineer with experience in test automation can set up and maintain automated test scripts to save time and resources in the long run.
- What does a QA engineer do?
QA engineers ensure that software is of high quality, reliable, easy to use, and meets required specifications. They design and implement test plans, test cases, and scripts to find any defects before the release.
QA engineers also work closely with developers, project managers, and other stakeholders. They may be responsible for creating and maintaining documentation, such as test plans, bug reports, and release notes.
- What is the cost of hiring a QA engineer?
The cost of hiring a QA engineer is influenced by various factors such as the level of experience, education, engineer’s location, and skill set. For example, the hourly rate for manual testers in the US can range between $19 to $50/hour. Meanwhile, Senior test automation engineers can earn as much as $70/hour.
If you want to hire offshore QA testing engineers, you can contact a software testing company like MindK. The cost of engagement will depend on factors like the vendor’s location, size, and type of partnership. So it’s always a good idea to request their rates during the first contact.
- Can your QA engineers join or take over a project in progress?
Absolutely! Our experts can seamlessly integrate into an ongoing project.
- Can you provide testing services for multiple platforms, such as web, mobile, and desktop?
With MindK, you can hire web and mobile QA engineers that have extensive experience with multi-platform web/SaaS and mobile iOS/Android applications.
- How quickly can your QA specialists begin working on my project?
The process typically takes around 2 weeks from initial contact to the start of work. In rare cases, MindK can assist you in finding the right specialist through our talent network, which may take up to 4 weeks.
- Can I switch out your QA engineer for another specialist?
If necessary, you can easily swap our software tester for another engineer. You can specify your preferred level of experience, skill set, and location so that we could better match your needs.
- Do you have a minimum contract term?
The minimum term can vary between 3 and 6 months when hiring our expert QA engineers.
- How do you ensure your QA engineers have good English and soft skills?
First of all, we’ve implemented a rigorous pre-vetting process to ensure all candidates have good English and soft skills. Our Node.js developers work daily on international projects, participate in Sprint plannings with clients and demo the projects to stakeholders, along with regular English lessons. This helps grow their soft skills.
We cultivate four key values:
- Get things done. We take initiative to offer solutions instead of passively complaining about problems.
- Self-management. We don’t hire a boss or two for each project. Our engineers kick themselves up every day to do the job because they know how and why.
- Relentless strive for self-realization. Each Mindkicker strives to become a professional in their field on their own initiative, not because they are forced.
- Positive thinking. Life is all about overcoming challenges and obstacles. A positive attitude helps us solve problems without dwelling on them.
- Can you give references or case studies of past projects you've worked on?
- How do you stay up-to-date on the latest testing technologies and methodologies?
Each QA engineer at MindK has a personal skill development plan. It is designed specifically to address their strengths and weaknesses. We also have regular tech discussions, organize local IT events, and attend industry conferences.
- Can you provide ongoing maintenance and support for the software after it has been released?
