Testers can not just be a testers, they have to be warriors. Testing may sound simple but it’s a pretty challenging profile which requires multiple skills.
In a company there would be times a tester would be expected to code while simultaneously managing the test strategies and execution and maintaining planning documents. And also be the guy who delivers the bad news.
One more prominent thing in the lives of testers is to have empathy for the end user, developer and even the product owner. Without an understanding of what all these people would want out of the product, testing wont make much sense.
The general perception is that it’s an easy profile, which adds to the challenge of the task. Also in companies, testers are usually extremely out numbered by developers and still expected to meet the high standard.
The fight for the testers is huge, but as technology is evolving testing platforms are coming up to ease the jobs of the testers. One such tool is LambdaTest, it takes full care of the cross browser testing and the bug management needs of the testers.
