A Quality Assurance Tester, or QA Tester, is a professional responsible for establishing and maintaining standards in various fields, including software production, video games, digital products, web platforms, and communication networks. The primary role of a QA Tester is to find flaws, trace error sources, and engage in independent and collaborative problem-solving within QA teams. They work closely with developers to enhance the functionality, effectiveness, and productivity of the workplace, ultimately improving the quality of the product.
It’s important to note that quality assurance testing is distinct from quality control testing. While quality control focuses on detecting flaws in products already manufactured and services delivered to customers, quality assurance involves the internal developmental process of products and services before they are released to the public.
