Requirements engineers: managing software development requirements
Requirements engineers are responsible for the analysis, documentation, coordination and management of requirements regarding new software projects. They identify and understand the customer’s project-specific demands and document them in a clear and binding way. By this, they act as the interface between the customer and the developers.
