Video Game Tester
Your life at Ubi:
As a member of Ubisoft’s Quality Control Department, you will be part of an awesome team focused on identifying and reporting bugs on specific areas of a game. Doing so, you will put your attention to detail and creativity to test. Here in Craiova, we have a ton of experience when it comes to game testing, so you will be learning everything there is to know about game testing from the best. And this will happen while having fun. If you’ve heard stories about the cool atmosphere at our studio, they are true.
What’s also cool is the fact that you will perform your testing activities on the latest hardware and with powerful in-house software and more. Yes, you will get to try out new consoles before they reach the market and test amazing games way, way before anyone else sees them. And you’ll do this sitting in a comfy chair in front of a large desk on one of the amazing floors of Electroputere Parc Craiova. The quality of life at work is very important to us and our new building reflects that.
Grow with us:
Evolving in your job should be important for you and it certainly is for us, so we will evaluate your progress every 6 months. Good performance is always rewarded here.
What about the future? When we invite you to take your first step in the gaming industry, we mean it. You should be thinking about a career in gaming, not just a summer job as a game tester. The opportunities in our studio are literally endless. Based on your talents you can evolve and lead teams of testers, become a test specialist in our QC Technical Standards Department (ex. Sony Compliance), get into software development as a product owner or automation analyst through our QC Tech Department or jump ship and join a production team as a dev tester, level designer or whatever you dream about in our Production families (Art, Design, Programming). The best part is that we will offer support and help your plans become reality through various courses and programs meant to prepare you for your future role in Ubisoft.
