ScienceSoft Testing Teams: Cost-Effective & High-Performance
With 31-year testing experience, ScienceSoft provides self-managed Testing Teams of scalable number and lineup able to quickly dive into your project and fully take on the quality assurance of a complex solution or its modules.
ScienceSoft Testing Teams’ Lineup
ScienceSoft Testing Teams are self-managed and work in coordination with each other and a development team. One Testing Team is assigned per application module or submodule, depending on the module’s tech and functions’ complexity.
With regard to the solution’s architectural complexity and current project needs, you can choose:
- Testing Teams’ number: from 1 to 10 teams - up to 60 testing professionals at a time.
- Testing Teams’ composition: from 1+2 to 1+5 (a test lead + test engineers).
ScienceSoft Testing Teams are organized in the following way:
Test Lead: develops a test strategy and plan for the corresponding solution’s sub/module; prepares test execution reports and a test summary report; liaise the testing team's collaboration with the development team; resolves testing issues; measures and improves test engineers’ performance; performs exploratory testing.
Test Engineers: develop and execute test cases; diligently report and describe the found defects; perform re-testing and regression testing.
ScienceSoft Testing Teams in Action
Each ScienceSoft Testing Team manually performs thorough UI and API functional testing of a corresponding application’s module. When the functioning of each module is fully validated in isolation, one Testing Team gets down to integration testing to ensure that all the application’s parts seamlessly work as one solution and enable complex end-to-end workflows.
Our performance, security, and usability testing professionals can also join the testing process, if required by your project.
Additionally, ScienceSoft can provide separate automated testing teams to reduce testing time and integrate testing into a CI/CD delivery pipeline.

our customers say
We started working with ScienceSoft in early 2011 testing our core application called Careware. The application is quite complex and has many ERP and mobile elements in it.
We have worked with the team in very close cooperation ever since and value the professional as well as flexible attitude towards testing. Since starting our cooperation the test team has changed in size and people, with one tester remaining with us for already 2 years now! We currently have a team of 3 very enthusiastic and good testers with whom we are very happy.”

Choose the Suitable Service Option
Continuous testing through the entire SDLC
ScienceSoft Testing Teams provide functional UI and API, component and system integration, regression testing during the solution’s development, evolution, and support.
The number of Testing Teams and their members can be scaled up and down depending on the changing project needs.
One-time testing (e.g., acceptance testing)
ScienceSoft Testing Teams can get into a short-term project (from 3 months) and perform a single-round set of manual testing activities to ensure the solution fully complies with its requirements and is high-quality enough to go live.
In-house testing team augmentation
ScienceSoft can provide Testing Teams for separate solution’s modules to fill the gap in some specific tech, industry, or regulations’ competencies of your in-house QA team.
Note: With continuous testing or testing team augmentation options, ScienceSoft Testing Teams are ready to step in either from the beginning of your solution’s development project or at any other SDLC stage.

Our Testing Teams are self-managed, still, if there’s an in-house QA team, overall QA management can remain on your side. The in-house QA manager will split responsibilities between in-house test engineers and ScienceSoft Testing Teams. ScienceSoft Team Leads will provide regular test execution reports to the QA manager.
Our test engineers will communicate with the in-house development team to ensure relevant test cases’ prioritization for risk-based testing, effective defects’ management, re-testing and regression testing.
We promote Integrated Manual and Automated Testing (IMAAT) approach to optimize testing time. Our automated testing team leads analyze automation feasibility and calculate its ROI for your testing project. If it’s lucrative enough, we provide a separate automated Testing Team and introduce test automation within 3 weeks.
