As a member of the QA team at Paradox Development Studios, you will help us deliver the best possible games by testing our Grand Strategy titles in various stages of development. As an Embedded QA Tester for Stellaris, you will be working as part of the development team and provide valuable data and analysis on all aspects of the game.

About the role

Your role would encompass a wide range of QA responsibilities, including but not limited to traditional bug-testing duties, analyzing the quality of the game from a player’s perspective, feedbacking on game design choices, and assessing the general playability and fun factor of the game. Day-to-day work will involve working closely with outsourced test partners, maintaining bug databases, playtesting and collaborating with the wider team. This will require strong interpersonal skills.

We value candidates who have a strong work ethic and work well as part of a team, as well as being able to bring new ideas and fresh approaches to our current structure. Attention to detail, an analytical mindset and the willingness to learn multiple facets of game development in order to be a QA-side problem-solver for a range of other disciplines would all be considered important for an ideal candidate.

Having experience with - and enjoying playing the Stellaris franchise will be considered a strong plus for potential candidates, and engagement with the wider Paradox portfolio would also be an asset. We encourage applicants from a range of experiences and backgrounds, even if they might not expressly fit the requirements listed below.


  • Help create effective strategies around testing all aspects of Stellaris

  • Help create & maintain test cases in collaboration with the QA Lead

  • Identify and report issues in our Bug Tracking Database according to internal standards

  • Assist in managing the Bug Tracking Database to ensure it reflects the most current state of the product

  • Provide a wide range of feedback to developers around the product at every step in development

  • Assist in documenting testing processes and general QA reports in collaboration with the QA Lead

  • Communicate & collaborate with Outsourced QA


  • Experience working in Quality Assurance, ideally on games or other entertainment software

  • Experience in or high level of knowledge of the entire game development cycle

  • Fluent in English (spoken and written)

  • Experience with bug reporting tools such as JIRA

  • Strong analytical skills in reviewing design-related information and interpreting areas of risk in testing

  • If you have experience playing Paradox Grand Strategy titles it will be considered a strong advantage

Some of our benefits include:


If you think that this description matches you, we highly encourage you to apply as soon as possible as we will interview candidates continuously. If you don't match all the requirements, please demonstrate how your passion, attitude and interest in Paradox might compensate for this.
