Epic Games is looking to significantly expand its internal full-time Quality Assurance team. We are looking for serious QA professionals with wide ranging skills and experience who want to work embedded on a development team. Whether you have very limited QA experience or you have 15 years or more, we have a position for you.
What You'll Do
As a QA Manager on Unreal Engine, you will own the people management, process, and risk management of your specific team. Additional responsibilities will range from building test strategies, defect management, driving organizational change, and mapping out QA hiring priorities and staffing plans. The position requires being a leader in QA, as both a people manager and someone who isn’t afraid to dig into the details of problems and find innovative solutions at scale. If you are comfortable in a fast paced environment and have the desire to lead a strong test-focused team, then we would like to talk to you.
In this role, you will
- Partner with developers and production to build sustainable testing solutions that likely include a mix of manual efforts, tooling, and automation.
- Lead the team in their use of data to develop proper risk assessment profiles while identifying major risks in a fast paced environment
- Develop major testing initiatives using a combination of process, people, and effective testing methodologies
- Move the team to a “shift-left” mentality with a focus on developing automation and tooling.
- Provide guidance and mentorship in the development of both hard and soft skills
What we’re looking for
- Bachelor’s degree and 6+ years of Quality Assurance experience
- Capability to lead a QA team both as a people manager and tactical driver of success
- Formal QA certification, such as ISTQB or equivalent experience
- Experience in both software and games development
- Experience in reviewing requirements and code review to assist in creating test plans with automation in mind
- A deep understanding of defect reporting, version control, and configuration management best practices, along with different testing phase best practices and objectives (functional, system integration, UAT, performance)
- Technical background - an ability to contribute in day-to-day efforts when needed.
- Experience working with Unreal Engine 4 or 5, or other Game Engines
- Experience with C# (preferred) or other programming language
