LEAD QA TESTER

As a Lead QA Tester you will be responsible for managing the full test work of one or more projects within our studio. This includes discussing the test work that is needed with the development team, determining the testing features required, setting up the test plans for the project to help it reach the finish line according to our quality standard and possibly managing other QA testers, depending on the project size.


As a Lead QA Tester you are responsible for running test cases (including hands on testing), assuring quality and compliance of our games on multiple platforms and projects. You will write test documentation when required and you will report, manage and track bugs through our bug tracking systems in a clear and consistent format. You will work closely with other testers and the development teams to ensure that tests are completed in accordance with milestones.
