How we care about tester’s freedom

*RoC: Representative of Customer

RoC: So, you are a startup.

Moolya: Yes, we are.

RoC: We were looking for testers on contract who could help us test our product.

Moolya: We are glad you approached us for testing help. We exist to solve such problems.

RoC: I would need the testers to sign a bond with us for 2 years, surrender their school and college diploma and certificates.

Moolya: May we request you to explain why it’s needed?

RoC: What if they quit in between?

Moolya: We are interested to know what problem does signing a bond solves?

RoC: They can’t quit in between and go.

Moolya: Would you need them beyond 2 years?

RoC: Yes, we hope they stay with us for longer than 2 years.

Moolya: OK, so, what have been people usually doing in your company after the bond period is over?

RoC: Most of them search for jobs and move away.

Moolya: OK, so, this kind of bonding isn’t helping them stay beyond 2 years.

RoC: At least, they stay for 2 years with the bond.

Moolya: Hey, we want to be of value to you. Our company emphasizes personal freedom for testers and we won’t bond them by asking them to sign a bond, surrender their certificates and all that. Testers we hire are bonded in a different way, they love working with us, love interacting with their colleagues who help each other grow smart. No strings attached.

RoC: We are not sure if we can engage you then.

Moolya: Sir, we are really worried about the value you may get out of bonding testers for a 2 year period.

RoC: No worries, we will take care of that.

Moolya: Agreed. Only you know what works for you.

RoC: So, you don’t want this business.

Moolya: We want this business more than anyone else but not by the way of constraining testers freedom.

RoC:  Look, we like you folks and that’s why we wanted to talk to you. There is nothing wrong in bonding people. Even Wipro does that for freshers.

Moolya: We are sorry. We just chose not to do that.

RoC: OK, Good luck.

Moolya: Thank you. Wishing you good times ahead.

In light of these improvements, eGov was able to focus more on building the product and not really worrying about test strategy anymore. This significant value add made the client renew the contract and move complete ownership of DIGIT’s testing requirements to Moolya - one of the many instances that we’re really proud of Moolyans living up to our vision of solving testing challenges with a passion for businesses with purpose.
