QA Engineer

Overview

QA stands for Quality Assurance. At a high level, QA Testing exists to confirm that the product you're making is the product that the customer wants and is released with no bugs.

Back in the day, software developers would build the software, hand it over to QA testers, and testers would manually test software and send back a list of bugs to be fixed. 

The new wave of QA is more efficient. At Devmountain, we train people for the new wave of QA, which means that QA is involved in every step of the agile development process. QA testers are sitting in on design meetings, are on calls with clients, are in all of the standups, and are looking at code as soon as developers are writing it, instead of waiting for the whole product to be done. 

A QA tester is specialized in having the customer mindset championing the customers and asking questions to make sure that everybody is on the same page and nothing is missed. In the long haul, QA saves time and money.
