Alena, who is the perfect QA engineer?

Manual QA Engineer
From my point of view - the perfect QA engineer is a person, who is steadily developing himself. Along with fundamental science knowledge, such as math, psychology, sociology, logics, the professional QA engineer should have advanced brainwork and fertile imagination. He must have both overall understanding in the majority of software development stages and in particular processes. It is important to be experienced in manual testing, test automation and, of course, that would be helpful to be acquainted with DevOps basics for confident software deployment. It is a good practice to be aware of business planning and strategies. And last but not least, as in any other sphere, the work should be fun.
