EuroSTAR Volunteer Programme

EuroSTAR Volunteer Programme

EuroSTAR is Europe’s largest Software Testing Conference which has been running since 1993. For the past 25 years we have welcomed thousands of Testing Professionals to our 4-day conference which completely immerses you in the world of software testing in all its forms.

At the heart of our Conference is our Community and we encourage our attendees to meet fellow testers, network with industry leaders and above all learn from each other. Our Expo area features a busy central hub to facilitate this with a selection of interactive elements and sections.

Our Volunteers are a core part of our Conference. They will interact with delegates from welcoming and assisting with directions to being an active part of our central community hub in the Expo.

We are seeking enthusiastic testers to be part of our 2018 team in The Hague from 12th-15th November and in return you’ll have the opportunity to attend talks and meet with leaders of the Software Testing Community as well as fellow testers.

What Do EuroSTAR Volunteers Do?

Volunteers exchange work for an opportunity to attend talks and workshops at the EuroSTAR Software Testing Conference.There are 3 main areas where volunteers get involved as part of our team.

Test Lab at EuroSTAR Conference


TestLab is a space that allows speakers and delegates to participate in active testing. This is where delegates come to try out the latest testing tools. Our speakers take time to visit the TestLab so that they can demonstrate their skills.

Responsibility: The Test Lab Crew invite and welcome attendees to get involved and try out Test Lab. You will also create games and puzzles to challenge the minds of the testers. See more click HERE

The Test Clinic is like a “doctor’s clinic” for testing problems. Software Testers come here to ask for help with day to day testing issues which are then solved by experts (“doctors”).  No matter the problem, our Test Clinic Team do their best to help.

Responsibility: If you have testing experience and can help people with their testing problems or be comfortable to find a consultant that can then you should apply to volunteer at the Test Clinic. Read more HERE

  • Volunteer for EuroSTAR Conference


    EuroSTAR Cadet

    The EuroSTAR software conference is the largest in Europe. The EuroSTAR Cadet role offers a number of testers just starting out in the industry an opportunity to attend the biggest software testing conference in Europe.

    The role will involve helping out with directions for attendees, runner for Q&A sessions, helping speakers setup and more.

    You will be given the opportunity to interact with some of the best software testing minds. You will be able to attend sessions and see what all the hype is about!

    What Kind of Volunteers are We Looking for?

    If you are new to testing, eager to access some great testing talks while contributing to the successful staging of the Conference, then this role is for you.

    DAYS NEEDED Monday to Thursday


    Community Huddle

    The Community Huddle is the home for conference delegates to get to know each other. Filled with couches, games, and more, it is the place to relax, chat about your favourite talks so far or just shoot the breeze. The Community Huddle bring testers together at the Conference much like the online Huddle does.

    There will be a number of 'Fringe Events' such as Lean Coffee, Open Space, a testing book-swap, Soap Box events, Couch Sessions, First-Time Attendees session and more.

    What Kind of Volunteers are We Looking for?

    Technical knowledge is not necessary for this role. You will need to be a good facilitator, happy to talk with fellow attendees and discuss everything testing. You'll be happy to announce Soap Box sessions, eager to find speakers to give a talk,and share your experiences in software testing with others.

    You will also be familiar with, if not a member of the EuroSTAR Huddle online community.

    The role will require attendance at all the breaks but you will be free to attend some of the sessions.

    DAYS NEEDED Tuesday to Thursday


    Test Lab

    The Test Lab is the location you want to be at to challenge your testing knowledge. With lots of environments, testable systems, tools, expert sessions and more, there is plenty happening.

    What Kind of Volunteers are We Looking for?

    You’ll need to be facilitator at heart. And you’ll have an advantage if you’re technical, social and inventive.

    You’ll help to keep the environment working, get familiar with the target software, help people get unstuck, help set up and pack away. You’ll be front and centre throughout the event, at the heart of the conference. You’ll learn from the Masters what they do, and why.

    Being part of the Test Lab is a big commitment. The TestLab takes more preparation than a keynote and more commitment than a tutorial. You don't (usually) get to go to any talks but you do get to meet with testers from all over Europe, expand your testing horizons and learn from the Test Lab Masters.

    DAYS NEEDED Monday to Thursday


    Test Clinic

    The Test Clinic helps attendees to get their day to day testing problem solved whether with the Clinic Doctors or Consultants.

    We are looking for test "doctors" to operate at the Clinic during the Conference.

    What Kind of Volunteers are We Looking for?

    You will have strong technical knowledge, you will be happy to help out with problems and know who to refer to if you are unable to solve it. You will be organised, aware of many different test processes and a great communicator.

    The "Doctors" will be on hand at all the breaks during the conference but you will be able to attend some sessions.

    DAYS NEEDED Tuesday to Thursday
