What’s the Job?

We’re looking for an experienced QA Manager to lead our QA team. As a senior QA professional and a manager, you will create our QA process and roadmap, along with line-manage and mentor your team. An open and effective communicator, you will coordinate with other managers and leadership to build quality into our development process and ensure that our people can do their best ever work while living happy, healthy lives.

  • Build strong personal relationships with other department leads.
  • Identify and recruit talented QA professionals.
  • Manage external QA partnerships, including with 3rd party vendors and our volunteer QA force.

What traits should I have?

We divide applicant traits into 2 categories: "Should Have" and "Nice to Have".

"Should Have" traits are things a candidate really should have, but you can make up for it in other areas. If you’re missing one or two, consider applying anyway, especially if you belong to a marginalized group.

"Nice to Have" traits are ‘bonus’ traits that can improve your candidacy, but none of these are necessary to apply.

QA Manager - “Should Have” Traits

  • 8+ years of QA experience.
  • 2+ years managing QA professionals.
  • Deep knowledge in QA, including experience with a wide range of QA tools, conventions, and methodologies. You are aware of past, present, and emerging trends in QA.
  • Knowledge of product development pipelines and lifecycles, and the ability to integrate in QA.
  • Experience with multiplatform GaaS QA.
  • Excellent communication. You are not only a great presenter but also an empathetic listener.
  • You are self-directed and able to manage both your own workload and that of your team in a remote environment.
  • You’re excited at the prospect of leading and shaping a team and being part of our studio at this exciting stage of our evolution.
  • You value diversity and want to work alongside talented people from marginalised groups. We are explicitly a trans, LGBTQ+, BIPOC / BAME and disability positive team.

QA Manager - “Nice to Have” Traits
