The candidate will be primarily responsible for designing & developing tests for PLAYSTATION
In addition, there may be tasks involving verifying the behavior of a 3D graphics API and a 3D graphics debugger and profiling tool. Candidates should be capable of writing test-cases (including applications) to verify these products' feature sets. These applications / test-cases will be written in C/C++ in addition to a shader programming language, will use the 3D graphics API, and are designed around API or compiler test methodologies. Manual UI testing may also be required.
The candidate will need to execute tests in both MS Windows and Linux environments, and should feel comfortable in a Windows development environment.
