QA & Software Tester Jobs Market in Malta April 2023

Since the start of 2023, there has been a slight shift in manual testing roles in the QA & Software Testing market compared to previous years. However, we have noticed an increase in senior-level manual testing roles that include implementing the testing environment within most organisations in Malta.

Generally, Manual Software Testers need to have a strong understanding of software testing concepts and methodologies as well as experience in testing tools such as JIRA, Bugzilla, and TestRail.

Candidates should also be familiar with testing techniques such as black-box testing, white-box testing, and functional testing. It’s important to verify their technical skills through testing certifications or references.

Salaries for both manual and automated testers have plateaued within the QA market over the past 6 months, although there has been a slight rise in junior automated tester roles within the iGaming industry in Malta.

On the other hand, there has been an increase in QA Automation Engineers, and when choosing automated QA professionals in Malta, one of the first things to consider is their technical expertise. Candidates for automation positions should be well-versed in software testing methodologies and different testing tools, such as Selenium or Cypress.

The majority of your automation jobs will be found in the iGaming industry, so they should also have experience with programming languages like Java or Python in addition to their testing knowledge.

These roles can be quite challenging as the demand for such professionals exceeds the available talent pool. Typically, this is why companies have to resort to the relocation of talent or the possibility of fully remote working options.
