As a Development Tester at Ubi MTL, you’ll be the validation before integration, responsible for the quality of a specific feature throughout production. You’ll resolve issues efficiently to make sure bugs and glitches don’t end up in the final version of a game.
As you test, you consider every possible choice and move a player might make during gameplay. Working alongside artists, designers, programmers, and the like, you get to the root of problems and find solutions to fix them.
Thanks to you, once the game finally hits the market, what players will come to uncover is not only a game that’s playable but an experience that’s enjoyable.

- Identify bugs and develop test plans for your assigned feature (e.g. mission, AI, audio, UI, gameplay, engine, online, etc.).
- Follow up on functionality bugs found by internal + external teams, and coordinate their correction (sort, prioritize, and assign to the right developers).
- Work with other development testers to stay up to date, fix features, suggest solutions to setbacks, share knowledge, etc.
- Meet with the development team to discuss progress, provide your creative input, etc.
- Create custom game versions, reproducing bugs to evaluate their risks.
- Write and maintain documentation, detailing defects found and their sources.
- Contribute to coming up with ideas for automated tests & solutions to optimize the testing process.
- Create your own automated tests and analyze test results.
What you bring
