What is a tester and what do they do?

A tester checks the quality of a program before it reaches a user. They closely work with project developers, hinting to them what can go wrong.  

The main task of a tester is to make sure that a product works as designed: effectively and without glitches. A tester can work with websites, computer games, mobile apps, cloud services. Testing can be functional and automated. For the former one, you need computer literacy, and for the latter you must know programming.
