To be considered for a Software tester position, at a minimum, you need to have a bachelor’s degree in computer science, information systems, mathematics, or the equivalent.
Some employers require a master’s degree as well. With some exposure to the database, it should be relatively easy to land an entry-level job at a company.
Some employers may accept applicants without a formal education in one of these areas in lieu of substantial technical experience and knowledge.
However, the more education and experience you have, the more appealing you appear to an employer.

A software quality assurance engineer monitors the software development process.
We are all sadly familiar with issues like our devices suddenly working really slowly, or our favourite computer program shutting down due to an error.
Well, as a software QA engineer, you would be the one figuring out solutions to such problems!
You would work towards creating software’s that work without any glitches. You would also help build the design features of the software.
You will work on checking if a website is easily viewed on different screens and browsers. You will test each and every feature and functionality and ensure that software works adequately.
You will understand and explore the behaviour of various users to test the software from their viewpoints.
You will need to test all software thoroughly before it hits the market. This will help you ensure that the final product that enters the market is exactly as per the instructions given by the development company.
Your job will also involve working at and visiting tech fairs so that you can check out other software launches.
What will you daily
Being a part of the software development process from start to finish. This involves carrying out steps like understanding the requirements for the software and testing parts of the software.
Ensuring that the guidelines laid down for your software, are followed and implemented while creating the software.
Working with the internal teams. These consist of software developers and product managers.
Checking for glitches in the software process. Fix any bugs found in the software or in its implementation.
Tracking the status of glitches found in the software process, to see if they have been resolved or not.
Helping resolve user problems. This is done by understanding the problem faced by the user, and then providing a solution to that problem. For example, if a user tries to access the website from a mobile phone and the pictures are of the same size as the desktop version- you would inform the team about this discrepancy and help them to resize all photographs for a mobile version.
You'll need to have:
strong verbal and written communication skills with the ability to liaise with a variety of stakeholders
the ability to work under pressure
attention to detail
competent technical skills
the ability to work in a team and individually
organisational skills with the capability of working towards tight deadlines
a passion for working with technology.
Where will you work
You’ll often be working on more than one project at a time, one product in first phase testing and another in its second or final phase. This means you’ll work around the demands of the project rather than the clock.
If you’re documenting the tests your typical working hours will be a 9am to 5pm day, but if you’re running tests then it might be longer.
