What does a Verification Engineer do?

Verification engineers build and implement systems designed to test products, programs, and other tools to determine if they function properly as intended. They establish and implement verification and testing standards and policies. They create software programs and algorithms to run testing procedures and operations. They produce drawings, workflows, and design specifications. They perform testing, debugging, and troubleshooting. They often create technical manuals and other materials, and produce and maintain detailed documentation related to verification activities and outcomes.

Verification engineers have at least a bachelor’s degree in an engineering discipline or technical field, although many roles require an advanced degree. Experience with verification interfaces and programs is expected. Proficiency with programming tools and languages is helpful. These roles require careful attention to detail and strong organizational skills.
