Job Description:

QA Analyst (6 - 12 month contract) - Madden 

  1. Please note that this is not a permanent position

Summary

The QA Analyst is a technical test expert that applies white box, grey box and black box testing techniques to determine a testing approach to help prevent and identify/isolate/report issues as early as possible. This requires an analytical approach that wants to understand system designs and executing a test strategy that both ensure functionality and challenges the system. As a QA Analyst, you look at a game as not only a player experience but as complex interactions between Software & Hardware (ex: I/O systems, wireless communications, client/server architecture, external services, and databases).
