We are EA! And we make games – how cool is that? In fact, we entertain millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games is hard work. That's why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry!

About the Role
The Osiris team provides EA with a high-performance mobile engine that is currently used by multiple games both live and in development.

We are looking for a Sr Quality Analyst to be part of the Osiris QA team – reporting into our WWQA organisation – for coordinating, organizing, and executing work assigned from the manager, ensuring consistency with process, methodologies, and results.

Your primary goal is to achieve a high level of quality for the Osiris engine through executing and improving upon a quality program of extensive end-to-end tests, integration tests, and release/change management processes.

You will be expected to partner with development and game teams internally and externally to help improve the test and development processes, and proactively provide support as needed – Build Testing, Complex Bug Isolation, Risk Analysis, and Regressions. You will become a driver of the quality process and an expert of the Osiris engine with all its associated in-house and 3rd party tools.

While the main focus is to identify, isolate, regress and communicate bugs effectively and efficiently, you will be expected to help lead and be accountable for the members of your team, helping coach and mentor team members with the direction of the management team.

About You
The Sr Quality Analyst is a software quality expert that applies automation and manual testing techniques as well as in-depth understanding of system design, implementation and integration to identify bugs as early as possible in the development cycle. This requires strong test strategies and experience which challenge the software to ensure a very high level of quality (Functional, Reliable, Usable and High Performance).

Skills and Experience Required:
*Demonstrable QA testing experience.
*Experience with content & asset editors, software tools, and shared technologies will be an asset.
*Familiarity with Development Tools such as Perforce and Visual Studio.
*Understanding of build systems, continuous integration, unit tests, automated functional tests, and testing frameworks.
*Proficiency in Documentation tools (Confluence) and Defect tracking tools (JIRA).
*Strong understanding of Software Development processes and continuous development.
*Experience with QA practices, methodologies, and bug prevention strategies.
*Ability to develop and foster strong working relationships with development partners, customers, support teams, and management.
*Excellent oral and written communication skills, including accurate and timely reporting.
*Excellent organization and time management skills.
*A strong ability to prioritize and multi-task across competing demands.
*Ability to immediately recognize critical issues or testing deficiencies and raise concerns to leadership.
