We are looking for a QA Tester to work in our downtown Toronto game development studio. Our team has years of experience and a track record of success including multiple top-10 freemium iOS games like Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, Covet Fashion, Design Home, and Diner Dash Adventures.

You will work on a cross-functional team working with other QAs, Game-Designers, Developers, and Artists to ensure our mobile game software is of the highest quality in functionality, usability, and fun. You will engage and improve our QA process and methodology, as well help with test case creation, execution, and bug logging and resolution.

• Execute test plans while documenting test results and all relevant test artifacts
• Manage the bug database and backlogs to ensure bug accuracy, priority, status, and severity
• Work with Development, Production, and Design teams to help solve technical problems, perform quality assessments, and identify risk

• Exceptional written and verbal communication skills in English
• Able to troubleshoot, isolate and debug issues for root cause analysis
• Creative problem solving
• Scripting or programming, to delve deeper into automated testing/scripting opportunities
• A passion for mobile gaming; gaming as a hobby, as a form of art and a design challenge! And your skills and experience include:
