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
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
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
critical, and constructive feedback about new skills.
You’ll need the following equipment:
- A desktop or laptop computer
- Chromeweb browser
- Ability to hear audio output and provide your own voice input, i.e. working speakers or
a microphone. A headset is not required, but using one can help. We recommend the Sennheiser
PC 8 USB
Sounds like me! When can I get started?
Right away! You can sign up to join our tester panel
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.
