Job Ref:

Feral Interactive, a leading developer and publisher of AAA games for Mac and Linux, are expanding their internal QA team. As part of this process, we are looking for a number of experienced QA Technicians.

You will assist in all kinds of QA testing across a range of projects: Feral ports Windows releases to Mac and Linux, so you can expect to work on recent PC hits. As we work with a variety of publishers, you’ll be testing a wide variety of games of different genres and styles.

Our QA process differs from that during original development: you won’t be running around levels trying to find holes in walls or logging bugs recommending game design decisions. Instead, typical testing duties include:
  • Checking that the game runs well on supported hardware
  • Running performance comparisons against the original game
  • Looking for in-game graphics rendering issues
  • Multiplayer testing (in some cases, cross-platform)
  • Helping with language checks and game documentation
As well as optimising in-game performance, we also aim for our games to have excellent integration in the OS, so a strong background using Mac and/or Linux is an advantage.

This is a permanent, full-time position based in our offices in London, UK.

What experience should you have?

  • Significant experience in game testing in a professional environment
  • Excellent attention to detail
  • An active interest in computer games
What else would help?
  • Experience of testing on multiple platforms
  • Experience with Mac and/or Linux, testing or otherwise
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
What’s in it for you?
  • Salary of £18-21k, dependent on experience
  • Flexitime
  • Relaxed small company atmosphere
  • Regular company dinners and outings
