Lead Quality Assurance Engineer
We're the Curie Team, and we’re creating new magic. Interested in joining us in building a new world of adventures? This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for someone who wants to be a part of building a next-generation MMO from the ground up!
We love horses and the community that has been built around the Star Stable Online universe, but we are ready to move out of our comfort zone into a new world of adventures... without horses.
We have a vision of the new game, but we need more than that. So this is where we hope you will build some magic together with us.
Our QA Lead will work alongside the core leadership of Project Curie to define what quality means for our product.
To be successful, you need to have experience working directly embedded with the game development team. You’ve built QA roadmaps, outlined testing strategies and processes, and flagged areas for improvement or automation in your previous teams. You have an understanding of all the various testing types and when to execute on them; black-box testing, regression testing, certification testing, compliance testing, localization QA, smoke testing, automation, etc. Most importantly, you are an advocate and champion of building quality throughout the development process, both in our processes and our output!
We're at the beginning of our journey and preparing to move into Pre-Production on this title that will let players explore epic worlds, build connections with others, and express themselves creatively. We like stories, but we also think the most compelling stories are those the players tell themselves. Our flagship MMO Star Stable Online is in its 10th year of continuous updates with a community that continues to grow in size and passion. That’s our bar for success.
THE MISSION FOR THE TEAM
This new game is something totally different, so the team that builds it really needs to be daring and driven and have our values in the backpack. We all need to be good collaborators and communicators.
We know that we will try small and fail fast. We will be open to feedback and let our audience grow with us. We know when to ask for help and how to share our knowledge with others. And we do know that at this stage, perfection is the enemy of success.
To help you during this journey you will have a whole company with many years of experience and support functions. You’ll join our growing team in shaping the vision and bringing this new product to life to delight new audiences.
WHAT YOU BRING
It is important for us that we all share passion and excitement around ambitious games that grow in dialogue with their audience. This project and this role requires you to have a pioneer mindset and enjoy experimenting and breaking new ground.
Our team is small, lean, and close-knit. We love to work towards the same goals through self-ownership and autonomous but collaborative workflows. The QA Lead must be a strong communicator, able to convey our testing needs to teammates of all different disciplines.
Additionally, experience with tools like TestRail, JIRA, or equivalent is required.. As a bonus, we’re looking forward to getting the whole development team to playtest together
Currently, a lot of our employees and hiring teams are on their summer vacations, therefore it might take a bit longer than usual for us to review your application.
