Job Description

The Test team at Bungie has an equal seat at the table with each of the other game development disciplines. Our Test Engineers engage in all phases of development to shine a bright light on risks at the earliest possible moment. We then ensure those risks are resolved to reduce debt. To accomplish this, our Test Engineers build an in-depth understanding of the features they are responsible for and use that knowledge to more effectively integrate test practices and methodologies within their development teams. This gives us the greatest potential to improve the quality of our games while also helping keep our teams lean, flexible, and healthy.

The Social team creates features which allow players to build meaningful social relationships within Destiny. Clans, Grouping Mechanics and Matchmaking are examples of features that the Social team might build. These features integrate heavily between the game client and backend services teams. Test Engineers on the Social team should be comfortable navigating complicated test environments and collaborating across teams. Test Engineers should also be comfortable working on non-gameplay, data driven features and using their knowledge of gameplay and player archetypes to improve those systems.
