Your key tasks include assessing and improving the engine, integrating essential tools and technologies to maintain top-notch quality in our work, and creating thorough test cases. You'll also lead the way in developing new testing methods. 

If you're driven to take on challenging endeavors within the realm of large-scale production systems and tooling, and if you are committed to doing things right, we encourage you to explore this opportunity further. Join us in our mission to drive innovation and excellence in our organization. 

We're offering a permanent position in Malmö, Sweden, with the flexibility to work partially from home (up to two days a week) under our Flexible Workplace Policy. Please apply using English, our company's primary language.

What you’ll get

A fun, creative, and passionate workplace.

Here you will get to work in a constantly evolving environment with a range of new technologies and it will be your responsibility to provide requirements and use-cases to developers working with Continuous Integration. To ensure that best practices are clearly defined and documented you will collaborate with the Snowdrop Documentation team.

We aim to build a team that continuously pushes the boundaries of what’s possible in game development, and because we love to learn and grow from the people around us, we might ask you to complete a practical test as a part of the recruitment process.
