Job Description for Performance Engineer

A performance engineer ensures that their organization's products work as promised. Their main goal is to identify any issues that would cause the product to not work as described and subsequently help resolve those issues. They are involved in the design, implementation, and operation stages of product development. During each phase of the project, the performance engineer must identify potential problems; this is not limited to issues that might occur in manufacturing, usage, and repair - it also includes testing the product under normal usage conditions to ensure it will last for the advertised life cycle. Performance engineers are also responsible for testing the system in ways it was not designed for, ensuring the system can withstand the wear and tear of consumer usage. This includes running cycle life tests to ensure that the product will remain in the same working condition until it has become old or obsolete.
