Job Description
Quality Analyst - Contract

Ripple Effect, an evolution of Battlefield's DICE LA, is a Los Angeles-based game studio on a mission to build community-first experiences through continuous innovation and boundary breaking technology.
Our Mission: We are on a journey to build community-first experiences through continuous innovation and boundary breaking technology.
Our Ethos: We value how ideas take shape - in a conversation, a prototype, a dream. Inspiration flows through our studio, homes, and minds. With one drop of inspiration, the idea begins to spread and the smallest idea quickly grows to something bigger than us. That's by design. As with our games, we are advancing the industry - one idea at a time. We are Ripple Effect.
Our Values:
• Community first
• Excellence through iteration
• Quality in our craft
• Bold risk taking
• Honesty & transparency
• Creative diversity

QA Analysts at Ripple Effect Studios are embedded in development and will test, document, and analyze the game during production.

The Analyst role is a versatile role with many areas of focus and responsibilities. An Analyst is a catalyst ensuring that QA understands the design and that its features are tested in the correct way and ensuring that the quality of the game lives up to our players expectations.
