MobilityWare was recently named one of Built in LA’s Best Places to Work for the second year in a row and we’ve been recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Orange County five times by the Orange County Business Journal and OC Register. While we’re proud to be the company behind some of mobile gaming’s most popular titles, our most important achievement is creating a work environment that encourages professional growth and prioritizes the wellness of all of our team members.
What does success look like? You will join a dedicated, focused, and collaborative team that is responsible for seventeen live games. As a Senior QA Analyst 2 for Spark Games studio at MobilityWare, you will be responsible for the quality of those games, including new features, tech updates, and new games. You aren’t just a “tester,” you are an enthusiastic, self-motivated, and goal-oriented QA professional.
You will help ensure that tens of millions of players have a wonderful experience. That means working directly with designers, producers, and engineers to catch the little things that other people miss. It also means adapting within a highly dynamic environment while supporting our studio’s mission to deliver value sooner.
