What is Quality Assurance (QA) Engineering?

QA Engineering aims to improve the software development process by detecting errors and preventing defects. Therefore a QA Engineer must have a robust knowledge of the product and be an integral part of the product team.

Even though QA should ideally permeate the entire product management process 🔍, it is seen most concretely as quality assurance during the Development step.

What is the role of a Quality Assurance Engineer?

A QA Engineer’s work typically involves a variety of tasks:

  • Risk analysis
  • Compliance with the product requirements and standards
  • Planning and executing tests
  • Identifying and track bugs and any problem areas
  • Analyze, optimize and create new processes
  • Highlighting ideas to improve product quality
