On a typical day, you'll perform various types of testing, such as functional, balance, stability, and performance testing, on our online marketplace. You'll diligently document any issues you find, ensuring clear and concise reporting. Attention to detail is crucial as you execute test plans and create test cases for new features and systems. If there are any hard-to-reproduce issues, you'll track them down and identify the necessary steps. Additionally, you'll play a vital role in completing regression and verification testing on fixed issues. Collaboration is key, as you'll communicate and work closely with the QA team and the wider production team.

As a remote worker, you must be self-driven and able to stay productive and motivated in a remote work environment. And of course, a love for games is a must!
While not required, it would be advantageous to have experience in creating and executing web test automation scripts, testing large-scale web applications, and using issue tracking software like Jira. An understanding of the software development test cycle process is also beneficial. If you're an enthusiastic and energetic team player who thrives in a highly collaborative environment, you'll feel right at home with us. We also welcome experience working on a distributed team spanning multiple time zones.

We value work-life balance and provide flexible paid time off, along with local and national holidays based on your region.
