Your primary goal is to achieve a high level of quality for the 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.
