CUTGroup Detroit

The Civic User Testing Group (CUTGroup) is a community of residents who get paid to test civic websites and apps.

Be a tester, get paid

The Civic User Testing Group (CUTGroup) is a NEW intiative in the city of Detroit designed to PAY citizens to test out civic websites and apps. This is how it works:

  • Fill out the CUTGroup profile form below to sign up to be a tester. Once you do that, we will send you a $5 VISA gift card just for signing up

  • Once you sign up, you will receive email notifications about new testing opportunities. We will ask a few more questions that relate to the technology we are going to test and you can let us know if you are available

  • If and when you are chosen, you will test civic websites and apps. Testing will happen through out Detroit in public computer centers

  • Once you complete a test, you will receive a $20 VISA gift card

There are technology developers who make websites, mobile apps, and other tools that are made specifically for residents. By being part of the CUTGroup you will help developers make better software that will help make other lives better.

If it doesn't work for you, it doesn't work!

We are looking for residents from all over Detroit, who use different types of devices, browsers, and operating systems.

Get Started

We are looking for a diverse group of residents in the city of Detroit to participate in the testing of civic app/websites! Sign-up now and tell your friends!

In order to get the most out of the CUTGroup tests, we have to have a fairly scientific take on who is part of the test and how they use technology. This survey has a lot of questions about where you live, what devices you have, and how you connect to the Internet. This helps us get the right mix of people to test a particular application and website.

To get started, fill out the form below. After you complete the form, we will send you a text message to verify your sign-up. Once verified, we will send you a $5 VISA gift card in the mail right away. If you live anywhere in Detroit, you are eligible to be a CUTGroup tester. After you have signed up, you’ll be part of the CUTGroup and will receive email notifications when we have new tests coming up.
