The test analyst works as part of a larger team with the goal of ensuring quality, product performance, and excellence in operations. This may include identifying inefficiencies or deterrents to workflow, as well as proposing solutions. The test analyst is responsible for testing, analyzing, and compiling data, as well as generating reports. Test analysts may be called upon to investigate failures in product, process, or machinery; it is also their duty to recommend modifications, based on testing, to design or process.
