Location: Guildford, UK Salary: Negotiable

Job ID: # Posted: 2 years ago

EA Guildford

Our Client has a state-of-the-art, multi-platform game development engine. They empower creators to shape the future of gaming and achieve this by developing leading-edge engine features and world-class tools. The talented team from across the globe is dedicated to building innovative technology and working closely with each other to ship amazing games. This Engine powers some of the most stunning games in the industry along with deep player experiences.

 

They are looking for a Senior Quality Analyst for a specialist team in the Guildford studio. You will be part of the Engine QA team – reporting into their WWQA organization – for coordinating, organizing, and executing work assigned from the manager, ensuring consistency with process, methodologies, and results. Your primary goal is to achieve a high level of quality for the bespoke engine through executing and improving upon a quality program of extensive end-to-end tests, integration tests, and release/change management processes.

You will be expected to partner with development and game teams internally and externally to help improve the test and development processes, and pro-actively provide support as needed – Private Build Testing, Complex Bug Isolation, Risk Analysis, and Regressions.  You will become a driver of the quality process and an expert of the Engine with all its associated in-house and 3rd party tools.

 

While the main focus is to identify, isolate, regress and communicate bugs effectively and efficiently, you will be expected to help lead and be accountable for the members of your team, helping coach and mentor team members with the direction of the management team.

 

What a QA Analyst does at this studio:

The Quality Analyst is a software quality expert that applies black box testing and enables automated testing techniques as well as in-depth understanding of system design, implementation and integration to identify bugs as early as possible in the development cycle. This requires strong test strategies and experience which challenge the software to ensure a very high level of quality (Functional, Reliable, Usable and High Performance).

 

Required Skills and Experience

  • Demonstrable QA testing experience
  • Experience with game engines, content & asset editors, software tools, and shared technologies will be an asset.
  • Familiarity with Development Tools such as Perforce and Visual Studio.
  • Computer Graphics and 3D Art skills
  • Understanding of build systems, continuous integration, unit tests, automated functional tests, and testing frameworks.
  • Proficiency in Defect tracking tools (JIRA) and Test management tools (TestRail).
  • Strong understanding of Software Development processes and continuous development.
  • Experience with QA practices, methodologies, and bug prevention strategies.
  • Ability to develop and foster strong working relationships with development partners, customers, support teams, and management.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills, including accurate and timely reporting
  • Excellent organization and time management skills
  • A strong ability to prioritize and multi-task across competing demands.
  • Ability to immediately recognize critical issues or testing deficiencies and raise concerns to leadership.

 

What else is in it for you?

They have great perks available like comprehensive health and benefit packages. And since they realize it takes world-class people to make world-class games, they offer competitive compensation packages and a culture that thrives off creativity and individuality.
