Who we areForwardXP develops VR and multiplatform AAA video games with an emphasis on multiplayer & live services games. Our senior team previously served in leadership positions shipping some of the top selling game franchises of all time including Call of Duty, DOOM, QUAKE, RAGE, Wolfenstein, Counter - Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, and more.

We value culture, personal growth, and have a commitment to diversity. We place a premium on individual autonomy, and actively work to remove administrative overhead and meetings whenever we can, allowing the team to focus on making incredible games.
What we value
We are committed to the quality of our work. We stand behind what we create and love delivering fun, high-quality games to our partners and players.

We embrace curiosity and innovation, exploring new ways to create games that push the boundaries of technology, increase healthy engagement, and maximize fun.

We understand creating fun takes time, effort, and collaboration. Needs change, strategies shift, and being agile and outcome-focused results in better games, happier players, and great long-term partnerships.

We believe that every voice matters when it comes to developing games. Inclusion helps create a full, well-rounded game from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.

Who we are looking for
We are looking for a QA Analyst to help us build and ship interactive training and game experiences here at ForwardXP.

In this role, you will work closely with our talented development teams including Production, Engineering, Art, and Design. While this position is remote-friendly, at this time, we can only extend the remote flexibility to those local to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. Some in-office presence may still be required at times, depending on your project and level of involvement.

What you will be doing

  • Detect, research and report issues in VR projects through various testing disciplines
  • Write and execute test plans on pre-release versions of software
  • Create regular reports summarizing the QA status of projects
  • Assess product functionality against design and quality standards
  • Log issues for the development team to review in clear, concise tickets
  • Act as the QA point-of-contact for your assigned projects
  • Collaborate with other team members to ensure quality and accuracy in the overall game play experience and its functionality
  • Utilize experience exploring open worlds to provide feedback that will help improve the title for fans and participants of such game play experiences

Requirements
  • Shipped at least 1 title in a QA role
  • Experience testing in VR and online/multiplayer games
  • Familiarity testing on modern VR headsets (i.e Meta Quest, Oculus Rift, HTC Vive etc.)
  • A strong analytical and problem-solving mindset
  • A very fine attention to detail with a technical mindset
  • An innate curiosity that oftentimes leads you down a different path
  • A strong sense of project ownership
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Ability to work in both an individual and team environment
  • A passion, energy, and excitement to the team and organization

Bonus Points
  • PC testing experience
  • Familiarity with game development tools such as Unreal Engine or Unity
  • Familiarity with project management tools such as Jira and Confluence
  • If you're someone who always asks "Why is this happening?" and likes to find out why/how
  • Have your own elaborate renaissance faire garb, complete with matching, hand-crafted accessories. It'd be cool if you have a sword too. (Our QA team is really... really into Ren Faire)

Benefits
  • Health care coverage
  • Equipment of your choice
  • Remote-friendly, for applicants local to the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.
  • Flexible working hours
  • Unlimited vacation policy
  • Paid in office lunches
