QA Analyst Jobs

QA Analyst Overview


A quality assurance analyst works to test a software program and report any bugs that might appear. Commonly known as a software tester, quality assurance analysts are responsible for catching any major problems that reduce the quality of the product before it goes to launch. They must document every problem that occurs and reproduce it exactly so that developers can implement a fix for it. Doing so prevents a piece of software from being released with a bug. A QA analyst may work closely with both IT support technicians and system security analysts.

QA Analyst Education Requirements


Generally, a QA analyst will have a bachelor’s degree although some get by with just a high school diploma and experience. Most firms will expect quality assurance analysts to have at least some college coursework under their belt on top of a large amount of experience and skill with computers and software. QA analysts undergo a lot of on-the-job training in order to learn a company’s specific procedures but are generally left to work on their own. Patience is required as reproducing the specific bug can often be tedious. Analysts might be expected to work with the same program for months at a time.

QA Analyst Job Market


The job availability for quality assurance project coordinators is expected to grow by 25% by 2022, an extraordinary amount of growth due to the industry’s increasing pervasiveness. This growth is expected to generate around 20,000 new jobs each year.

QA Analyst Salary


The average yearly wage of a quality assurance analyst ranges from as low as $40,000 to as high as $110,000 depending upon the employer. Senior analysts will make a much higher wage than those just starting out. However, quality assurance analysts tend to be entry-level workers, so this wage is far better than most equivalent jobs that require the same experience.
