I dont think there is a home-based job for that. You'd have to be on a site of their choosing. They also wouldnt hire a 15 year old, they'd be arrested for child slavery or somewhere along those lines.

Usually game testers have to be at least 16+, or if you have written consent from your parents if you're younger.

I don't think there's really any paying jobs for beta testing. They are usually open to the gamers (public or private) and more of a volunteer thing.

The only paying tester positions that I know of are Alpha Testers. You must be 18 years or older and you have to live near the company to get those jobs.

Ubisoft Hq here in Montreal recruit alot of temporary testers with either a paid salary or a free copy of a game of your choice.

From what I heard from people who have worked in this field, video game testing is not a desirable position.

Very true. QA testers are considered like nothing among in the industry, and the job is very demanding with little reward. However, this is the easiest way to get the game industry and is how a lot of people get a foot in the door to work their way up to their desired position (programmer, level designer, etc.) :smileywink:
