• Collaborate with other QA managers in the UEFN, Verse, Unreal Engine, and other spaces to identify areas of risk between products and work out mitigation strategies across the FNE platform
• Identify improvement and innovation opportunities in existing quality approaches and provide recommendations of new ones where they are needed and impactful
