From the hiring kit:
A successful business enterprise, regardless of industry, must consistently produce a quality product or service. Customers and clients expect quality, demand quality and will leave to find quality if they do not get it from your business. Whether a software development project is for an internal or external customer, quality assurance engineers have become vital to the success of modern business.
DETERMINING FACTORS, DESIRABLE PERSONALITY TRAITS AND SKILLSETS
Capable quality assurance engineers must be able to test and document potential problems, unforeseen consequences and hidden flaws. Once documented, they then must be able to communicate their findings to stakeholders. It’s important for them to condense that detailed documentation into nuggets of information that are comprehensible for individuals without an engineering background.
