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

Some Test/Quality Assurance (QA) Engineers work with computer science-related applications. A lot of what they do involves making sure that software does what it's supposed to do. On a day-to-day basis, they create test plans and test cases to determine whether certain parts of the program function as written. When problems arise, they are responsible for finding and debugging rough spots in the code. QA Software Engineers also review user interfaces to ensure functionality and uniform design. They're present for every step of the software development process, interpreting and reporting testing results to their superiors and the rest of the software team.
