Overview

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 a Test Lead joining our incubation efforts early in development, you will coordinate and execute your owned feature's coverage by collaborating with cross-discipline peers throughout all phases of development including post-ship. You will also work with cross-discipline peers and test leadership to help establish early test best practices for your incubation project's features. Your role will be to identify risks during the earliest phases of feature development and then highlight potential healthy paths forward, communicating and weighing the tradeoffs and costs of the options.

Test Leads are responsible for their holistic areas and must be able to craft and apply a unified approach to their area's features and content, as well as evolve that approach over time. You will lead the conversation with designers and engineers on how to mitigate risks and deliver the most value to your players by crafting robust future-facing strategies for consistently and sustainably delivering your area's content from pre-production, through ship, and into post-launch support. The incubations teams are dedicated to developing in a sustainable and healthy way and you will be a critical part of realizing that vision.

This Test Lead position will involve both test planning and test execution, and it is expected that candidates develop a deep knowledge of the engine, tools, features, and production pipelines. In the future, this role may include management and/or leadership of other Testers on the team.

This position is available for full-time remote work in CA, FL, IL, NC, TX, and WA.
