In this era where everything is going digital, job roles are evolving too. There are new functions going online, more apps being developed for different tasks and for leisure. Technology is evolving at a pace faster than ever. With this, the role of QA is evolving too.
Software quality assurance provides confidence to go live to customers. In today’s digital world, where time to market is the biggest factor of a product’s success, QA methodologies are evolving and fusing with other roles in the product life cycle. Due to this, it is very important to hire an appropriately skilled software tester for the role.
Along with technology, QA role focuses on documentation, processes and at some point, merges with a Business analyst role too. The exact roles and responsibilities of your QA engineer will depend on how your team is set up. Here are some of the ways a QA engineer may interact with the team and contributes to the project,
- QA engineers participate in planning meetings to discuss proposals and software improvements. They provide input around the challenges of delivering projects, provide testing inputs, help set testing standards and develop evaluation methods for the work.
- While the software is in development, QA engineers continuously do static testing thinking from customer point of view (End-to-end). They can make or request code or design changes and ensure that integrations with other software work smoothly.
- Before the software release, QA engineers conduct multiple tests against the exit criteria and using different approaches using different QA skills. They work with the release manager to ensure the software is ready to go live to the final user without any bugs.
With that being said, hiring the right QA engineer can make the difference between launching a globally trusted, robust software and releasing a substandard product and not to mention financial losses for your company.
According to the latest World Quality Report, most IT companies spend about a quarter of their QA budget on QA staffing. This budget is mostly spent on finding the right software testers with appropriate qualifications or experience and recruiting them to fill a QA position or QA role. In its 2016 report, SHRM estimated that companies spend an average of 42 days to fill a position and over $4,000 per hire.
