Job Description for Game Tester

Good game testers — usually working in quality assurance (QA) departments — are an essential part of making sure that video games are error-free and ship on time. Testers usually are introduced into the development cycle of a game as soon as early playable versions (or “builds”) of the software are available. The tester frequently has scripts of steps to follow and repeat on newer and modified iterations of each build. The testers make extensive notes of performance and experiential data for the developers to use in improving the product.
