We are looking for a passionate and innovative person who wants to own their work and improve the quality of our games independently.
As part of our company culture, our most important technical goal is to build quality, and you will be one of the key persons in building better capabilities for it. You will be setting goals in collaboration with our technology leadership and have their full support, and in turn, be expected to deliver results.
We expect you to be well versed in both hands-on testing, regardless of if it’s manual or automated and organizing test activities in a project. Because our long-term vision is to minimize the need for manual testing, you should be able to scale your and others' work so that developers learn how they can test their own work independently. If you are from a manual testing background, we expect you to be interested in learning automating your own and other's work.
You will be responsible for training, organizing and improving our testing capabilities, so we expect you to be good with people and working in cross-functional teams. You’ll have the help of our technology leaders and game teams in defining what quality means, improving it, reducing bugs and taking preventive measures towards quality issues. You are not only training how to do testing but also teaching why testing is important and helping us to show its value to all stakeholders.
You’ll work closely with programmers, helping them to understand what to test and how to document it while they are writing new features or refactoring existing ones. You will also communicate with external manual testers and facilitate frictionless communication between them and our programmers and the project management. You will discuss and plan our testing needs and resourcing with programmers and project management according to our common quality standards, project scope and budget.
What we offer
We offer our employees a yearly E-passi Flex benefit, which includes Wellness (you can use it for dental too), Sports & Culture, and Commute. We also have a very broad occupational health care package and insurance for our people. These of course on top of competitive salaries. For permanent employees we have a lucrative stock option plan.
We can also offer relocation support for employees joining outside of Finland and very flexible remote working options for employees living in Finland.
The #houseofnitro has kick-ass parties too that are almost good enough reason on its own to join the clan.
