What you'll do

In this role you will work closely with developers, product owners, and QA analysts on the map team to collect and meet necessary quality criteria. The map team is responsible for Fortnite's playable world, map surfaces, collision, tech-based storytelling elements, environmental assets, and even more awesome secrets. The role will cover testing of the map in-game on various platforms, as well as testing map assets in the engine. This role also will focus on cross-team collaboration, working with various internal and external testing teams, performance testing on supported platforms, qualitative testing and validation testing in-game and in the engine.

In this role, you will
• Work with product owners, developers and QA management to define acceptance criteria, identify risks, and plan testing coverage for upcoming map features.
• Build test approaches and test plans in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.
• Conduct standard functional and qualitative testing on map assets in game and in engine.
• Perform map-based performance testing on supported platforms
• Plan and conduct defect exploration and verification of map features and map assets in game and engine.
• Analyze and troubleshoot reported defects and internal issues within the product and escalate quality issues.
• Proactively manage incoming defects and work autonomously on highest value tasks, be it test writing or test execution.

What we're looking for:
• 2+ YOE in testing
• 6+ months in Quality Assurance
• Exposure to software development life cycle and how QA fits in that cycle
• Experience in functional and usability testing
• Ability to prioritize and work independently, as well as in a team environment
