Internet Quality Assurance Specialists

Overview

Internet quality assurance specialists make sure software, applications, and Internet access are not only user friendly but that they also deliver what is promised. For example, anyone who has surfed the Web, found a store site, ordered a sweater, and received exactly the right sweater has benefited from the work of a quality assurance specialist. To do their work, specialists plan and carry out a process of testing, correcting, and retesting the software, applications, and Web sites. They work on sites for stores, banks, schools, or any number of institutions or organizations. They also work on mobile apps for cellular phones, tablets, etc. Some companies have their own quality assurance specialists; other companies hire quality assurance specialists to work on a project-by-project basis. In either case, quality assurance specialists must have excellent computer skills as well as the ability to problem solve.
