Software Test Engineer
What does a Software Test Engineer do?
Software Test Engineers check the quality of software products. They make sure that the software works correctly and meets certain standards. They do this by testing the product on different computers, phones and other devices. Software Test Engineers also help to find any problems with the software so they can be fixed before it is released. They may also need to report any bugs or issues they find. This helps ensure that the final product is as good and reliable as possible for its users.
What makes great Software Test Engineers?
A great Software Test Engineer is one who can take a comprehensive approach to testing, ensuring that all aspects of software are thoroughly tested and free from defects. They must be analytical, detail-oriented and have excellent problem-solving skills. Successful Software Test Engineer must also be able to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to complex testing scenarios. Additionally, they should have excellent communication skills and be able to communicate effectively with both developers and end-users. They must also understand the various tools and techniques used in software testing, such as unit testing, integration testing, regression testing and automation testing. Having knowledge of multiple scripting languages is a plus for a Software Test Engineer. Finally, they must possess the ability to work in a fast-paced environment and manage multiple tasks simultaneously.
What are future trends Software Test Engineers need to know about?
One trend that's been gaining popularity in recent years is the use of automation testing. Automation testing allows for tests to be repeated quickly and efficiently, saving both time and resources. Additionally, automated tests can help identify problems before they become too costly or difficult to fix. It’s also important to note that automated tests are more likely to detect bugs earlier in the development process.
Another trend that is becoming increasingly popular for software testing is service virtualization. Service virtualization allows testers to simulate complex environments without having to set up an actual environment. This helps reduce cost, builds confidence in the quality of the product, and accelerates time-to-market.
The cloud is yet another trend that is impacting software testing. Cloud-based platforms offer a range of benefits including scalability and cost efficiency, but they also present their own challenges such as security risks. Software Test Engineers must be prepared to identify and address any cloud-related issues with their tests in order to ensure the safety of customers' data.

Together with alphacoders, we were looking for and hired a NAV developer. The special thing about this was the complexity of the market situation: it is a very special position with a very narrow pool of candidates and a very loyal target group. We solved it through trusting and effective communication and adjustments to the profile. One key was certainly that we opened up for a fully remote position and were thus able to find and successfully recruit the right candidate.

Last year we worked with alphacoders for the first time. The cooperation was characterised by professional and very personal support, as well as profound contacts within our target group. What was special for us was that we were actually only looking for one PHP developer, but because of the but due to the suitable selection of candidates we directly hired 2 developers and that within only 3 months. We would recommend alphacoders at any time.
We have commissioned alphacoders to search for 2 web developers. The challenge is that we are active in a special niche in e-commerce with the topic of equestrian sports and ideally the ideal candidate should also identify with our sport. In addition to good communication and consultation, we jointly implemented an effective hiring process. alphacoders not only managed to attract many women for this position, but we even managed to hire someone with a love for our sport. We were able to fill both positions with alphacoders and would hire them again anytime.
With alphacoders we have found a strong partner for our tech recruiting. The feedback loops were short and efficient.
