Work Conditions

Software quality assurance analysts work directly for an organization, or they work as consultants. Consultants can be self-employed or work for an information technology firm. Although technological advances have made telecommuting more common, many consultants still need to travel to see their clients. The length of an assignment can vary with the complexity of the job.

Employment Outlook

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of software quality assurance analysts is expected to grow between 3 and 9 percent from 2010 to 2020, slower than the average for all occupations.
