Job Description for Sr. Test / Quality Assurance (QA) Engineer, (Computer Software)

A quality assurance engineer creates tests to find problems with software before a product is launched. They analyze any bugs found and document them. They also coach their team on managing testing tools, reporting results, and brainstorming process improvements. A normal work day for a quality assurance engineer includes developing new tests, running the tests, and documenting the results. If any defects are noted, the quality assurance engineers must collaborate with the software developers to find a fix and patch the program. Once the defect is patched, they run the test again to make sure there are no new bugs and that the defect has been corrected. This job requires a lot of mental work that most likely will occur indoors; they usually work a standard eight to 10 hour day during regular business hours.
