What does a QA Engineer do?
Software QA engineers perform evaluation and verification tasks to ensure software development processes adhere to quality standards and protocol. They are actively involved in the entire design, development, and execution process. They provide guidance throughout the development lifecycle and identify any potential complications. They perform testing, validation, and troubleshooting tasks. Their primary objective is to ensure the project stays on schedule and within budget, while avoiding any issues that could cause delays or lead to costly post-deployment problems at a future point.
Software QA engineers typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in a computer science field. They must have extensive hands-on experience testing and evaluating software programs at all stages of development. These roles require proficiency with common coding and programming languages, and experience using testing and validation tools.
