Re: Quality Engineer - Job description

I've found that quality engineer is going to vary from company to company...
at one place it could be someone who does process validation, at another it could be someone who's in charge of an SPC program, and at another it could be the guy who writes product specifications.
At one place it could be an entry level college grad and at another it could be a senior engineering position.

I don't think you can buttonhole "Quality Engineer" into a single job description that will fit any organization.

Maybe if you give us more specifics as to your industry we can be of more help...
