Software quality assurance (SQA) analysts are responsible for analyzing software development data to ensure that software packages contain no errors and meet certain industry standards. After implementing test plans using troubleshooting applications, they communicate any feature and coding problems to the development team. They’re also expected to recommend updates to quality assurance standards and make associated recommendations. Specific industry certifications are often preferred for applicants interested in SQA roles.

According to PayScale, the median salary for software quality assurance analysts is $60,000, while the top 10% earn about $80,000 and the bottom 10% earn $43,000. Although job growth for SQA analysts specifically has not been mapped, 12% growth is expected across all computer and information technology occupations between 2018 and 2028, which is faster than the 5% projected growth rate across all occupations.

Both immersive bootcamps and courses are available for aspiring SQA analysts. Topics covered may include JavaScript, test writing, test automation, unit testing, API testing, and agile methodology.
