The Challenge Ahead: The Quality Analyst I is responsible for executing test coverage on a set of game features or sub-features within the development QA space. The Quality Analyst I will serve as the primary QA support for the development team’s current cycle, and help execute QA strategies that push test support upstream in the development process.
What a Quality Analyst I - Contractor does at EA:
As a Quality Analyst I, your primary focus will be providing game feature and/or development tool testing, test case regression, verification and adhoc of newly implemented features, and tracking of defects within proper pipelines to resolution.
Our Quality Analyst I provide qualitative feedback on features with issues of usability, drive smoke testing for daily build promotions and coordinate with other team members. You collaborate daily with members of Production and Development, and escalate issues of concern to key stakeholders in a timely manner.
You will also spend time drafting detailed requirements for new features, including test cases for feature testing, creating and maintaining relevant test cases for scripted verification, and prioritizing issues in the bug database to expedite bug fixing efforts.
Ultimately, you will be the voice of quality for the project.
The next great EA Quality Analyst I also needs:
- 1-3 years of testing experience
- Strong communication skills, both written and verbal
- Strong sense of urgency to mitigate risks and potential areas of concern proactively rather than reactively
- Database experience (JIRA, Bugzilla, DevTrack)
- Level editor, programming, scripting experience a plus.
- Expert level knowledge of first person shooter video game franchises (Battlefield strongly preferred)
