WHAT YOU'LL DO:

Day to day:
There are daily standups to identify priorities, but otherwise you must maintain an eye on automated tests and troubleshoot any perceived problems. If something looks amiss, alert an engineer who worked on the problem area. Triage issues coming into the QA queue. Work on the next automation advancements, which can range from acquiring new VMs for greater compatibility coverage, setting up parallel testing, expand tests to accommodate different browsers, researching mobile automated testing frameworks or currently, developing a web game shell for the purpose of integrating with our api/site/payments platform and the ability to test integration points without reliance on any actual game.

Career Progression:
The level of this role is flexible from Junior to Senior.
The junior candidate will find a supportive, experienced team who will allow them to grow as a QA Engineer, developing the diverse stack and experience needed to contribute on a deeper level, eventually contributing more and more to the success of Kabam products and our QA approach and philosophy.
The senior candidate will find like minded QA Engineers who have a similar eye for detail, organization, and quality shipped products. You will see your work integrated into Kabam’s live products and utilized by millions of users and eventually become a Lead who contributes to Kabam’s overall approach to QA.

Benefits:
Full Health, Dental, and Vision; 401k matching; daily catered lunches; tons of snacks, drinks, etc.

Education:
C.S. Degree or Equivalent. Quality relevant experience will also be considered in lieu of degree.

*When asked, what is the most challenging aspect of working on your team, current team members responded:

“Working across many different platforms and technologies (Java, PHP, Ruby, HTML - CSS ). Automation testing needs to be able to play with many different groups within the Distribution Team and is vital to the success of the company.”

“At the individual level, consistently tackling projects outside of comfort zone, which allows for the opportunity to learn and grow, but will be stressful hitting roadblocks pretty often during the ramp up period.”
