When you want to start a business, at the very beginning there is only an idea. Back in 2011, we had a completely different idea before we started thinking about Crowdtesting and Testbirds – we looked into mobile payment.
Everyone knows that feeling when you receive a lot of praise and you ask yourself ‘What did I do to deserve this?’
Testbirds is “Top Arbeitgeber Mittelstand 2018”, which means that we are one of the best medium-sized employers out of 13,000 companies according to the German business magazine FOCUS. We know exactly why we deserve this award and therefore we are very happy to have the chance to share this news not only with our employees but with you, our readers.
In many companies, the following mind-set is still quite common: Flexible working (e.g. home office) means having no control over your employees and questions about whether they are really working. In my opinion, employers who have this mindset have a totally different problem to a lack of control: They don’t trust their employees.
We at Testbirds believe that there are always new things to learn and keep your brains busy with. This is why we not only have a “Bird University” for our employees where we discuss interesting topics every month, but also keep up with the newest research and trends in the QA and testing industry. We like to stay ahead of new developments and we see it as our task to always have a look-out for the newest trends and evolve our services along with them.
As you maybe have read in my previous post, I explained why digitalisation has a big impact on the working world. Digitalisation has resulted in new models of employment like crowdsourcing: This means outsourcing of projects to the worldwide community. The new tasks are handled by so-called crowdworkers.
