A software tester receives software builds at different stages of completion, applies various tests, and documents the software’s response. This process helps software engineering teams discover coding problems and bugs. Testers may use scripted testing scenarios or perform more free form stress testing, and they typically work with software at all stages of the development process. This position is often entry-level, but it may still require certain skills or certifications. That’s where bootcamps can come in, giving students a background in testing techniques and teaching them how to use mainstream test management tools.

According to PayScale, the median salary for software testers is $55,700, while the top 10% earn about $86,000 and the bottom 10% earn $39,000. Although job growth for software testers has not been mapped, 12% growth is expected across all computer and information technology occupations between 2018 and 2028, which is greater than the 5% projected growth rate across all occupations.

Both immersive bootcamps and à la carte courses are available for aspiring software testers. Here, interested students can browse content, information, and student reviews associated with those courses and bootcamps.
