CATLab QV Testers perform an important role in game and software development.
QV Testers perform an important role in game development: testing, analyzing, and recording, any flaws or 'bugs.' These refinements lead to higher quality and better playability of the finished game.
You will test, analyze, and record performance based on pre-defined metrics.
You will find bugs in a game before it goes public and assuring quality in the final product. Testers must know how to categorize bugs. You must understand production and marketing schedules. You will use a software quality management system to document their findings into a centralized database which is then shared with other EA QV groups located worldwide. You will typically work in teams-- which makes communication and teamwork a necessity. Testing involves playing the same game repeatedly for weeks at a time, testing different levels and versions or revisions of the game. Sometimes, different teams manage specific sections or areas of a game. The work can be repetitive and tedious; however, QV Testers test the game long after the novelty and fun factor may have worn off. A QV tester can anticipate different ways the game will be played by people around the world, and test accordingly.
QV Testers are issue seekers. Excellent English language skills, both written and verbal, are necessary to document issues and report them to colleagues. These findings can later be shared with a development team on the other side of the world or with a fellow tester sitting right next to them, which makes clear verbal skills important. IT competence, including the use of e-mails, excel (can maintain complex spreadsheets), slack, and database packages is also required. Though not necessary, some programming knowledge or experience is desirable.
The next great QV Tester:
Testers should also have a basic understanding of game design, how games are created, and how the different elements of a game contribute to the playing experience. Testers will not only identify and record a problem, but also try to work out what is causing it. A QV Tester will maintain concentration while playing games for long periods of time.
Above all, as a QV Testers, we prefer that you are avid players. You can demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the industry, including different platforms, game styles, and genres. It's important to know the market so they can evaluate our games against the competition and help improve the games we work on here at EABR.
