Job Description

What We Do

The Quality Assurance team owns the testing process, risk management, and quality evaluation of all products and functions across Epic. Our team works closely with developers and production to ensure the best possible user experience for our community and customers.

What You'll Do

We're looking for a Senior Software Tester to join the Epic QA team. You'll love this role if you're an innovative problem-solver who loves to ask the tough questions or a solution designer who wants to make sure software maintains a high-quality standard; you should be willing and excited to constantly push your own limits and continue learning.

In this role, you will
• Execute test cases with attention to detail to help ensure the quality of the product
• Create and maintain detailed test cases based on predefined test scenarios
• Thoroughly investigate and analyze issues to find root causes as well as communicate issues and escalate if needed by understanding the bigger picture
• Provide comprehensive reporting on blocking issues, testing results, and quality status to the development team, and facilitate discussion around corresponding risk areas
• Write clear and concise steps to reproduce issues in a bug report
• Apply familiarity with features to uncover issues and inefficiencies

What we're looking for
• Technical software or troubleshooting skills (degree in Computer Science or equivalent, self-taught, or relevant experience)
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills
• Experience with Consoles, Mobile Devices, browser-based web tools, and/or VR hardware
• Experience testing software within a structured QA team
• Experience logging defects in bug tracking systems such as Jira
• Exposure to the software development life cycle and how testing applies
• Familiarity or prior use of Game Engines such as Unreal, Unity, etc. is a plus but not required
• Any degree of scripting or knowledge of programming skills like Python or C++ is a bonus
• Employees will be required to be within commutable distance to the assigned office or studio as regular in-person attendance is an essential function of this position

Note to Recruitment Agencies: Epic does not accept any unsolicited resumes or approaches from any unauthorized third party (including recruitment or placement agencies) (i.e., a third party with whom we do not have a negotiated and validly executed agreement). We will not pay any fees to any unauthorized third party. Further details on these matters can be found here.
