The Development Manager provides specialized testing services for a single project or across a series of projects (software applications), within a team distributed across multiple locations. You will revolve around managing a series of software testing processes to achieve the highest levels of quality on the product. You will report to the Development Director of the project.
The engagement with EAP (EA Partners) is a complex approach towards a more in-depth partnership between QV Teams and external development studios. You will work with teams across the globe, with different cultures and understanding of test processes and requirements thus creating the need for a more nurtured way of delivering and interpreting information and results. At the same time, a more detailed approach in explaining processes and requirements and a solid knowledge of the entire QV architecture and methodology will be necessary as there will be no barriers between us and our partners and other EA groups.
A Development Manager aligns with the leadership and representatives of other centralized services and will collaborate laterally to promote best practices and new ideas to ensure company business goals are met in the most efficient ways possible.
