Role: Requirements Engineer

High-level definition of the Requirements Engineer role

In most cases, requirements engineer is a role and not a job title. People play the role of a requirements engineer, when they – in collaboration with stakeholders – elicit, document, validate, and manage requirements.

Requirements engineers are further characterized by:


• having in-depth knowledge of RE, which enables them to define RE processes, select appropriate RE practices, and apply these practices properly,

• their ability to bridge the gap between a problem and potential solutions.

The role of requirements engineer is part of several other roles that occur in practice. For example, business analysts, application specialists, product owners, and systems engineers frequently have to act as requirements engineers.
