Detailed Description

Toast's Quality Assurance team wants to see your app testing skills. Impress them and you can get hired!

The competition is to choose an app on your phone/tablet and create a video describing how you would test if it's working properly. The goal is to be as detailed and thorough as possible. If it helps, you can focus on a few particular features of the app, but then dive into all the different ways you would test that feature.

To capture your findings, you can record yourself holding your phone/tablet while you're walking through the testing OR you can use a screen recording tool and add a voice-over. See the resources section for some screen recording tool suggestions.

Here are some suggestions for general features to test:

  • Signing-up
  • Uploading files (if applicable)
  • Referring friends (if applicable)
  • Running the app on slower or choppy internet
