General information: 

Testbirds is one of Europe’s leading providers of crowdtesting – the testing of software like websites, apps, games, smart objects and wearables using the power of the crowd. The IT service provider was founded in 2011 by Philipp Benkler, Georg Hansbauer and Markus Steinhauser in Munich and now employs more than 60 people in offices located in Munich, Amsterdam, London and Stockholm. In addition to a franchise in Hungary and Russia, Testbirds has several sales partners in Italy, Canada and the US. 

More than 150.000 international testers all over the world and with different backgrounds are registered at the company’s platform to check software on their own devices for usability and functionality. The crowd of Testbirds reflects a cross section of the society: In addition to students, housewives and executives, numerous experts and certified testers are also available. This is how a test group can be put together, which corresponds exactly to the characteristics of the desired target group and fits the testing. All testers must complete an entry test to ensure that the quality requirements of Testbirds are guaranteed. Performance based compensation is assured to the tester. All tests are performed under real life conditions using the users’ own devices. 

Testbirds offers its customers different models of crowdtesting: In addition to the managed crowdtesting, where an experienced project manager oversees the test, develops a custom test design, evaluates the results and offers specific recommendations, companies also have the options of using the self-service testing of Testbirds. This allows companies to have direct access to the crowdtesting platform in order to test their websites and apps. 

A complementary approach for software testing developed by Testbirds is TestChameleon. It’s an on demand solution that provides every imaginable platform for manual and automated software testing in the cloud. Users can simulate any kind of hardware or software configuration (operating system, browser, and other software) remotely within seconds in order to test their websites and applications. This is done by creating virtual machines with remote access that provide the exact desired environment for testing, including your own custom software. 

By combining testing with crowdsourcing and cloud technology, Testbirds provides clients with a broad range of different testing services, allowing them to take the quality of their software to the next level.

We work in a dynamic and motivated manner. All our birds are flexible in undertaking their tasks. However, our employees quickly take responsibility and actively shape their responsibilities, whether they are here on permanent or internship positions. Another distinction are the team events and activities: To begin with daily foosball and FIFA matches, then weekly breakfasts together and last but not least quarterly Birds Flyouts like visiting the Munich Octoberfest or workshops at beautiful Bavarian seas.

A lot! Besides the responsibility, the flat hierarchies and the team events, you can work with big brands, e.g. Audi, Allianz or B. Braun at Testbirds. Furthermore we want to evolve with you.

Besides, we are offering coffee, beverages and fresh fruits for free.
