QA Testing is about manually accessing software, apps, solutions, games and such in order to find usability and functional bugs. The bugs that are found need to be reported to other teams (Tech, Design, UX, PM) in way that is easy to understand and replicate. Once the bugs have been fixed, the QA Testers need to validate the changes and verify that the changes didn’t affect anything else in the system. Only in this way can one be sure to guarantee consistency, quality and an overall incredible experience that follows the specifications laid out by the client and the rest of the team.
This training should especially spark an interest in those who are passionate about videogames and the gaming industry in general as our methodologies are the same used by the biggest companies in the industry.
Great candidates for the course will also have a keen eye for detail and excellent communication skills. If you are also competent in executing test cases and passionate about quality, you’ll fit right in! We also require a minimum knowledge of desktop, tablet and mobile applications and a fluent proficiency of English. Understanding of technical jargon is a plus.
