QA Engineer - Player Platform, Central Player Dynamics
QA Engineers are analytical champions for quality, focused on testing extensively to ensure a holistic understanding of Riot’s projects. They create test plans and evaluate both the functional and subjective caliber of projects for a Riot development team. As every project is different, they listen and improve, to put the players and their team first, and to solve ambiguous and complex problems. Most importantly, it’s their passion and love for quality that ensures that QA Engineers help us level up and innovate on our processes, giving players the best experiences while playing our games.
As a QA Engineer on the Central Player Dynamics team, you’ll help us test and build a suite of player dynamics related products that supports our global player base. The Central Player Dynamics team builds the platform that Riot’s games use to ensure a safe and fun interactive gaming experience. We build the technology that is used to encourage our players to behave in a positive manner and the systems used to detect and act upon it when they don’t.
