Job Description

As a Tools Tester (Temporary) at Infinity Ward, you will maintain the stability of our proprietary toolset through direct testing, monitoring tool development, and assisting engineers investigating defects. You will emulate a wide variety of developer workflows to find and assess problems with our toolset, as that toolset develops and improves. As changes and features are deployed to the studio, you will be the first point of contact for support, ensuring rollouts are smooth and new issues are identified and fixed quickly. By ensuring our tools maintain a healthy state, and thus content creators are able to work undisrupted by development, you will have a strong positive impact on the quality of our next title.

Priorities can often change in a fast-paced environment like ours, so this role includes, but is not limited to, the following responsibilities:
• Demonstrate technical expertise, confidence, initiative and ownership of development tools and workflows
• Become an expert on specific pipelines within our development environment
• Develop and maintain test plans and supporting documentation
• Interface with engineering teams to test new features and regress fixes made to the tools
• Be the first to provide user feedback on new additions and guide final implementation
• As new functionality is deployed, be the first point of contact to resolve issues and collect feedback

Player Profile

Minimum Requirements:
• Confident familiarity with game and software development tools (e.g. Maya, Radiant, Perforce, etc.)
• 2+ years of game industry related experience
• Passion for games and demonstrable understanding of game industry and gaming trends
• Extensive experience with discrepancy reporting systems (e.g. JIRA)
• Ability to prepare and present reports, both written and oral
• Experience in Python or other scripting languages is a plus
