Meet our Testers: Igor from Italy

Sep 4, 2015 | Guest Article, Crowdtesting, Meet our top tester

We are happy to introduce you to one of our top testers from Italy, Igor!

Hi Igor! Tell us about yourself.

Hello all! My name is Igor and I’m 39 years old. I live with my wife and 2 sons in Trieste, Italy and I work in a big company as a second level service desk engineer.

What hobbies do you have outside of testing?

I’m a musician. I play the keyboard in a reggae band, and piano as a solo composer. My first solo album will be released on September 15th. Besides this, I really enjoy walking in the nature and fighting for civil rights.

How did you find out about Testbirds?

I found Testbirds searching for beta testing sites on Google. I never had experience but really wanted to be an active part of the improvement of things that can be found online. And, I also wanted to contribute to my income.

What is the most critical bug you’ve found?

Well, I’ve found many funny translations of English words into Italian, but I suppose the most critical bug I’ve found was one in an online shop test: When clicking on the “Buy Now” button, it simply cleaned up the basket.

You are one of our top testers in Italy, how did you get to be a top tester?

One word: Constancy. I began with some doubts about being a tester, but the more tests I was selected for the more interested I became in testing. And now, it’s kind of an addiction. I apply to every test I’m invited to, and manage my time to complete the tests.

Anything else you’d like to tell us?

Well, I really did not ever think I’d have the chance of being between the testers selected for the blog. It’s absolutely a stunning sensation, thanks Testbirds!

And thanks to you Igor for sharing your story with us! If you’d like to hear some of Igor’s music, you can find his album “The Flow” on the iTunes store.
