The Senior QA Analyst role involves ensuring all QA tasks (as assigned by the QA Manager, Lead QA Analyst, Production, or other Development staff) are disseminated down to the QA Analysts and Game Testers. The results of these tasks are tracked and reported back to the relevant parties and any risks/concerns/high level issues are raised with the Lead QA Analyst and QA Manager.

A Senior QA Analyst also needs to ensure that the area of the game that they are responsible for is comprehensively tested, and issues are accurately reported into the bug reporting database. They should also, closely monitor the database and ensure that all bugs are being reported as per the current guidelines, all tickets that require QA attention are actioned upon and results fed back to the relevant parties. Compile and update comprehensive test plans, ensure that they are accurately run on a regular basis and that the results are disseminated to the relevant parties.

Mentoring of Junior staff is also a big part of the Senior QA Analysts role. They should continuously be monitoring and giving guidance to more junior staff, to furnish them with the knowledge and tools to do their job effectively. They will also be tasked with giving feedback and/or evaluating the performance of QA Analysts/Game Testers. They may, from time to time, be tasked with deputising for members of staff during busy periods, or during periods of absence.

An aptitude for technical disciplines, including exposure to bug reporting databases, experience of handling builds as well as using QA and/development tools and excellent knowledge of MS office packages etc.

This will be a varied role that will involve being focussed, and creative in your approach to QA, how it functions and how we can run the department effectively and efficiently.
