QA Tester (fulltime)
12 days ago
You are a proactive and passionate QA Tester and you are looking for a dynamic function. CoolGames is looking for a tester with passion for casual games, to strengthen our QA team. When the app-stores were introduced ten years ago, mobile quickly became the largest games platform. And now a new shift is taking place, as millions of people are starting to play and instantly share games with friends via their social or messaging apps, such as via Facebook, Snapchat, LINE and WeChat. CoolGames has been a front-runner in this new space and brought many successful games to messaging platforms, including Angry Birds, Battleship and Daily Sudoku, which is now the #1 sudoku game on Facebook.

You provide feedback on design choices and around end-user experience. You can write clear and detailed QA reports that developers can use to reproduce, validate and fix bugs. You use Jira to log and track issues. You will work in a dynamic team and be flexible to work with various departments within the company.
What is your profile?
