Job Description for Test Manager

Test managers generally work in an engineering group with other individuals to test software. Their role is typically to ensure that the testing process runs smoothly and everyone is contributing to their part in the process. They must assess any problems with software that arise during testing and work with their team to troubleshoot solutions, and they must ensure that all customer requirements are being met. Both during and after software testing, it is the test manager's duty to assess how well the testing process is evaluating the software; if revisions to the testing process are needed, the test manager must oversee these changes. It is important that the test manager understands the software being tested, as well as quality assurance processes and techniques; they also need to be able to effectively coordinate a team's work.
