Testing involves playing the same game repeatedly for weeks at a time testing different levels and versions or revisions of the game. Sometimes different teams are responsible for specific sections or areas of a game. The work can be repetitive and tedious however QA Testers must be able to stay motivated and test the game long after the novelty and fun factor may have worn off. They must be diplomatic and professional when communicating with other team members they must accept that they can have only limited influence over the design. They must also be able to anticipate different ways the game will be played by people around the world and test accordingly.

What skills does EA look for?

This is a popular entry-level role particularly for those not already qualified as an artist or programmer. This is an excellent way to gain experience & learn about the gaming industry.

QA Testers must be analytical and methodical. Excellent English language skills both written and verbal are essential to document issues and report them to colleagues. These findings can later be shared with a development team on the other side of the world or with a fellow tester sitting right next to them which makes clear concise verbal skills a must. IT competence including the use of e-mails spreadsheets and database packages is also required. Though not necessary some programming knowledge or experience is desirable.

Testers should also have a basic understanding of game design how games are created and how the different elements of a game contribute to the playing experience. Testers will not only identify and record a problem but also try to work out what is causing it. A key skill for a QA Tester is excellent communication especially the ability to communicate tactfully with other members of the team and potentially across the world. It s also important to have a good attention to detail persistence and patience. A QA Tester must be able to maintain concentration while playing games for long periods of time. Negotiation and conflict resolution skills are very important as is a passion for playing games.

Above all QA Testers must be avid players. They must be able to demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the industry including different platforms game styles and genres. It s important to know the market so they can evaluate our games against the competition and help improve the games we work on here at EABR.
