Testing

No one wants to end up buying a lemon. Especially not when it involves investing in an application that is supposed to last years. That is why Testing is so extremely important. By repeatedly testing and running applications through multiple scenarios, we give our client the confidence that the application works as it should. And that his investment has been money well spent.

Vacancies in Testing

At Capgemini, we have divided Testing into four specializations. Automation, mobile, usability and security. As a tester, you yourself have an influence on the choice of specialization. Do you like variety? You can change specialization from assignment to assignment. If you have fallen in love with one of the specializations, you can go for assignments that fall within this specialization.

Test automation
Companies sometimes update an application or website several times a day. Manually testing all the functionalities anew each time is extremely time consuming and often not desirable. With Test automation, you write scripts that run the tests automatically, within a few seconds, and virtually if possible. Allowing business processes to continue uninterrupted.

Mobile testing
It is no longer enough to test an application or website only via a computer. After all, end-users use multiple devices these days. And especially smartphones. Mobile testing enables you to check whether a website or application looks and works the same on all devices.

Usability testing
The fact that an application does what it is supposed to do is one thing. But is it also usable for the end-user? That is another matter. With usability testing, you represent the customer and check whether the application or website is user-friendly and easy to use. So that the client can trust that the end-user will also be happy with it.

Security testing
Does the application have weaknesses, can it be hacked and to what extent are (customer) data secured? These may well be the most important questions from an organization when it comes to security and trust. With Security testing, you turn the application or website inside out to be certain that we are delivering something that really satisfies all the security guidelines.

What we do in Testing

From a payment app to a retirement calculator. At Capgemini, we help various large (national and international) organizations with our IT solutions. You could be working for the government, retail organizations, energy providers or financial institutions, for instance. For one, we might perform regression tests, and for another, we might work with the end-users to guide the acceptance tests. Curious? Then by all means, check out our job openings.

Training

For starting testers, we offer the Testing Masterclass. This is a training program which teaches you everything you need to know for your first assignment as a Tester. The following training courses are offered, among others:

  • Testing in Theory and Practice
  • TMAPSuite Test
  • Engineer Test
  • Automation Fundamentals

Even as a more experienced Tester, there is still so much to learn, of course. Popular training courses for this stage include:

  • Java Basics
  • Selenium Cucumber Webdriver
  • leading SAFe (Scaled Agile Framework)

Could Testing be an interesting option for you?

As a tester, you step into the end-user’s shoes and seek out the limits. You know what the end-user’s requirements are and how it is usable for them. You also understand better than anyone that the development team has put its heart and soul into the application or website. That is why you not only look for the errors and faults, but you also contribute ideas for improvements. And you ultimately reach the best solutions for all the parties.
