What tasks do Software Test engineers have? 

Manual testers play a critical role in ensuring the quality of software products. Their responsibility lies in the comprehensive assessment of the application performance, comparing it to the initial requirements, identifying any deviations that may arise and ensuring that a digital product behaves as intended.   

QA engineers aim to find any functional bugs – incorrect calculations, improper data processing, missing, inaccurate outputs and errors in user interactions, etc. 

To do that, they develop test cases, execute testing, identify defects, analyze test coverage and conduct regression testing, collaborating closely with the whole development team.
