Job Description

At Riot, we believe "QA" is more than the bug-finding process that follows months of development work. For us, it's a set of values, practices, and behaviors that inform every part of the development process. Riot QA assists our engineers, artists, and designers to realize their best work, and the best way to work. Through iteration and fast cycles, we refine our choices and identify process and product defects early, thus protecting the player from flaws and distractions. By honing our craft of quality and demonstrating cross-discipline partnerships we are improving how quickly we can deliver while reaching ever higher degrees of product integrity. This exciting opportunity challenges us to rethink our approach every single day to ensure we provide the very best for our players. We help Riot sustainably craft excellent experiences for players, globally.

As the sole driver of QA among the small team, you'll need to evaluate new partners and identify risk and mitigation plans across both potential and ongoing projects. A true innovator with a knack for communication, you'll find ways to blend standard QA practices among multiple external parties with production and creative to ensure the highest quality products.

Responsibilities:

* Lead holistic quality across multiple games within a diverse portfolio by driving ownership across the development life cycle of these games
* Coordination with external development teams to evaluate their QA capabilities and drive risk identification/mitigation efforts for upcoming product launches

* You understand how significant quality is to deliver the best experiences to players
* You have plenty of experience writing test cases, handling bug databases and reporting quality by collecting and distilling data into a consumable form for all parties
* Experience handling 1st parties, submissions, age ratings, and legal reviews
* You have superb communication and can work with a variety of people, effectively communicating everything from data to creative feedback
