Job Description for Quality Assurance Analyst, IT

An information technology (IT) quality assurance analyst helps ensure products such as computer software, electronics, and other technology-related products are ready for release to the public. Similar to a quality assurance professional in other fields, the IT quality assurance analyst tests electronics and technology products, searching for any glitches or technical issues that prevent the product from working correctly. Ideally, the analyst identifies any problems prior to general release so that customers can use the product without difficulty or requiring assistance from the manufacturer. It is not always possible to test for every potential flaw, but IT quality assurance analysts help to keep the number of issues minimal.
