They’ll also carry out stress and performance testing on the code as well as testing in multiple environments (such as web and mobile) to ensure applications accessed by end users are working as expected. In addition to finding these weaknesses a Tester will also write bug reports as well as being involved in reviewing documentation.

In addition to this Testers will work alongside software developers and project managers to identify business requirements and provide ongoing monitoring of applications and software.
