They are the champions for quality and assist the Product Owner, Business Analyst and the Development Teams to fully explore the impact of a feature to the rest of the solution and challenges the traditional testing thinking about what needs to be covered in tests. The role is encouraged to provide appropriate challenge on acceptance criteria definition, sequencing and releases for the products with a view to reducing our Risk profile before go live.   This role also provides test management capability, line management and pastoral care for QA Engineers working within the same Agile team or within a separate Agile team. Prior to release, the Senior QA Engineer provides an objective assessment of the quality of the candidate release and the residual risk profile and makes a recommendation on the next course of action.
