Requirements for Becoming a uTester

As outlined in our Terms of Use, anyone over the age of 18 may become a tester in our community. Previous software testing experience is not required; we will teach you everything you need to know!

Testers from all over the world perform freelance software testing with uTest. Please note, it is the tester’s responsibility to ensure that they are contractually and legally allowed to freelance work with uTest. For example, if you currently have a full time job it, is your responsibility to ensure freelancing with uTest is not in breach of contract with your current employer. Or perhaps, you are living in the United States without a visa. In all circumstances, we recommend that you seek advice from a lawyer who is familiar with your situation.
