Freelance Functional Testing Engineer jobs at EPAM Anywhere

Functional testing is a crucial stage of the software development process, which requires mastery of skilled and competent Functional Test Engineers. With functional testing performed right, the software is checked from head to toe, to ensure it works as designed before the product goes wide scale.

The role of an onsite or freelance QA Engineer here is vital, as this is the very person who checks the product and uncovers bugs.

So, what does it take to be a robust Functional Test Engineer, though, who can ensure the full product is well checked?
