QA Tester Jobs

QA Tester Overview


A quality assurance tester is someone who works with software or hardware to ensure that it works properly before it becomes available to the public. Brought into the mainstream view by the appeal of working as a video game tester, quality assurance testers must be patient and work on often tedious aspects of software or hardware in order to approve its quality. Due to the cutthroat environment of business, products are held to a high level of standards. Many industries use QA testers to ensure their products can cut it, including application developers and computer security software companies.

QA Tester Education Requirements


Typically, a quality assurance tester will have a bachelor’s degree although some get by with just a high school diploma and experience. Most firms will expect quality assurance testers to have at least some college coursework under their belt, on top of a large amount of experience and skill with computers and software. Quality assurance testers undergo a lot of on-the-job training in order to learn a company’s specific procedures but are left to work on their own after that. Patience is required as is the ability to document the exact circumstances under which a glitch was discovered.

QA Tester Job Market


The job availability for project coordinators is expected to grow by 4 percent by 2022, resulting in an estimated 4,020 new jobs each year. Quality assurance testers can look to software and video game companies for employment opportunities; demonstrating a proficiency and interest in exploiting programs can provide an advantage over the competition.

QA Tester Salary


Quality assurance testers can make between $25 to $40 an hour, with a median annual salary of $60,000. Some companies offer wages as high as $75,000 a year although entry level wage might be only around $40,000. A quality assurance tester with more experience can expect to make more money than his less experienced counterparts, and those who work for larger companies can expect higher wages.
