At Bungie, we take pride in how Test helps deliver amazing experiences to our players. We accomplish this by fostering a collaborative but critical environment where QA has an equal seat at the table alongside all of the other development disciplines. As an Associate Tester, you will work with cross-discipline peers throughout all phases of development in order to shine a bright light on risks at the earliest possible moment, as well as highlight potential healthy paths forward. You will work alongside your teammates and lead to craft an in-depth understanding of our engine, tools, features, and production pipeline to create effective test strategies and mitigation plans that will improve the value delivered to our players and keep our teams lean, flexible, and healthy.

As an Associate Tester, you will be working with your team to execute the testing for your various shipping features. Associate Testers are on the front line of test coverage and execution and become experts in the various means by which we test at Bungie. Associate Testers are able to leverage their knowledge of test approaches and game systems to identify gaps and work with their team to help iterate on tools and process improvements.
