“As a panelist for Pulse Labs I feel like I am contributing to the future of customer care. Knowing that voice applications provide a wonderful way for customers to connect and discover products at their pace, really brings me great satisfaction! Providing honest feedback keeps everyone in the loop and creates a total win for the next generation of human-computer interaction.”

John M.

“The tests are actually really fun and interesting and I love being able to have a say in what works and what doesn’t work with various skills. It is cool to be able to hear about new skills and content before it is released to the public and know that you are potentially impacting the skills by voicing your opinions.”

Karla F.

“I never feel as though I’m doing work when I’m testing for Pulse Labs. They select tests that are not only relevant to you (or your family), but are genuinely enjoyable and a pleasure to take part in. How many places pay you to have your children dancing along to songs with you, pit yourself against others in quiz shows, or trying to survive in a choose your own adventure?”

What exactly do Pulse Labs panelists do?

Our testers are invited to interact with a variety of voice applications through our web platform. In most cases, you’ll be asked to navigate naturally through the skill, try asking certain questions, then provide feedback about your experience.

Is this a full time job?

No. Pulse Labs testing is not a full time job. It is, however, a way to earn some extra spending money from your home.

How often will I be invited to test?

We usually send out testing invitations via email a few times a week. Act quickly, as tests open for a limited time and close when we have all the responses we need.

How much do tests pay?

Tests pay up to $50 each, depending on the complexity of the task, and take 15 min on average. Please note that all testing sessions go through a quality assurance process, and we only pay for high quality tests with substantive feedback.

How and when will I be paid?

Payments are sent out via Paypal​ about a week after test completion. If you do not already have one,​ you will need to create a Paypal​ account in order to receive payment. Paypal fees are usually covered by Pulse Labs, but in rare cases, these fees may take a few cents off of your earnings.

How can I make sure my tests meet your quality standards?

  • Test whether your equipment is working properly. If Alexa can't hear you, she can't reply!
  • Always read instructions thoroughly before each test and make sure to follow directions regarding what we'd like you to ask.
  • Take a moment to think honestly about what the app did well and how it could be improved before you write your feedback. We’re paying you for substantive, critical, and thoughtful responses.

What do I need to be a panelist?

We’re looking for testers who are excited about new voice technologies and eager to give substantive, critical, and constructive feedback about new skills.

You’ll need the following equipment:

  • A desktop or laptop computer
  • Chrome​web browser
  • Ability to hear audio output and provide your own voice input, i.e. working speakers or headphones and a microphone. A headset is not required, but using one can help. We recommend the Sennheiser PC 8 USB headset.

Sounds like me! When can I get started?

Right away! You can sign up to join our tester panel here.

Help! I’m logged in but can’t find any information about my tests!

That’s perfectly normal! Our tester accounts are brand new and we’re working on adding test and payment tracking information as soon as we can! We’ll let you know when this happens, but for now, please continue to look for test invitations and payment notifications in your email inbox.
