QA Manual Test Engineer Job Description

QA manual test engineers, sometimes also called manual testers, take on the role of an end user in order to manually test software and apps for proper functionality. In order to perform the tests correctly and thoroughly, the candidate should be able to understand a business analyst, prepare a test plan for projects assigned to them and use the recommended software to log bugs and incorrect behaviors found during the testing process. Often QA manual test engineers will be asked to create and execute test cases that are based on the business requirements or functional specifications for each piece of software or app assigned to them. This may include designing and writing scripts that will test positive, negative and boundary cases as well as scripts that will test workflow and server software such as SQL. Test cases will need to be organized and updated as the software or app is debugged.

QA manual test engineers should be comfortable in engaging in communications with their own team, with the software engineers and possibly with the client. Bugs and incorrect functionality will need to be communicated clearly and concisely so that a complete fix can be made by the programming team. Reports and updates may also be required on a daily or weekly basis. QA manual test engineers may also be asked to create demos in the last part of the project timeline as well as create and deploy promotional content for sales associates and customers.
