Job Description for Senior Test Engineer

Senior test engineers generally work with computer software and hardware. These engineers test and create programs for a company for their own internal programs or usage or for third party/public usage. Senior test engineers generally work with and/or oversee a dedicated team of test engineers or developers, and they work with them to suss out and address any issues that might arise in a given system or program. Because they often lead teams, they must have excellent communication skills and the ability to troubleshoot, self-start and motivate their fellow team members. Senior test engineers may also perform regression, security, integration, quality assurance and stress/load testings. In addition, they often monitor usage and performance of certain servers, units, programs or systems. Senior test engineers often work their way up from more entry level test engineer positions. Regardless of how they arrive at their position, senior test engineers are generally required to have at least a bachelor's degree in computer science or a related field, fluency with development languages and processes, test environments and prior work experience in their field. Some companies may require their senior test engineers to have specific certifications or security clearances. In addition, a basic foundation in IT knowledge (such as networking, system administration, etc.) is usually helpful. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
