Build a Rocket Boy are the most exciting studio that you might not have heard of! You could soon be part of this growing team of industry veterans who are currently right at the beginning of a huge AAA project with a twist! This is your chance to be part of gaming history.

This studio has huge plans; they already have a very experienced workforce and a lot of backing. But this is only the beginning for them. They have plenty more projects on the horizon! This is a brand new position and an amazing opportunity to join a young and growing team. You will have the chance to define the processes for your own department. 

As the Brand new QA Manager, you would be responsible for ensuring the quality standard of the project. You will manage the daily efforts of the QA teams by allocating resources and maintaining a productive and efficient team through test cycles. The QA Manager will also define and develop testing procedures and test plans whilst working with remote and/or outsourced teams to ensure consistent QA practices.

You will be responsible for defining and executing solutions for both development and live QA needs, including reproducing issues, analysing new features, and testing changes in a rapidly iterative environment. In addition, you will deploy effective mentoring and management to promote positive, collaborative culture and individual growth opportunities.

Your day-to-day will include:

  • Act as QA leader and, in collaboration with Production and Game Design, implement a consistent QA process
  • Lead, mentor, and hire QA Analysts for their internal QA teams
  • Be accountable for the quality of all work of the QA team
  • Ensure all resources are effectively allocated and tasked to keep multiple projects on schedule

  • Analyse product quality and usability as well as the associated system limitations, reporting on risk to development leadership
  • Report to Production and the Technical Director on relevant trends, usage rates and effectiveness of solutions for quality assurance
  • Represent QA at any cross-team technology meetings
