We Are DICE
EA entertains millions of people across the globe with the most amazing and immersive interactive software in the industry. But making games is hard work. That’s why we employ the most creative, passionate people in the industry.
DICE (EA Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment), the award-winning developer based in Stockholm, Sweden, is best known for creating the phenomenally successful Battlefield franchise, (with the widely acclaimed Battlefield 1 being the latest installment) as well as the lauded rebirth of the Star Wars: Battlefront Franchise.
The Challenge Ahead
QA analysts at DICE are deeply embedded in development teams and are responsible for testing, documenting and analyzing the game, it’s UI, and backend systems from early concept and design phases through production and on to post-launch.
The analyst role is a versatile one, with many areas of focus and responsibilities. An analyst acts as a catalyst to ensure that QA, Design, Production and software Developers are all in alignment and have optimal coverage to ensure a high level of quality in every feature. Coordinating testing and execution across multiple international teams is a daily part of working here, so excellent communication and organizational skills are a must.
The Next Great DICE QA Analyst Needs
Technical Analysts must be analytical and methodical with solid knowledge of software development principles. QA Tech analysts will work closely with members of every discipline (especially software engineers, designers and producers) and must have a keen eye for identifying risks or dependencies and communicating those effectively. They will help implement and execute Automated Testing and work to identify the root cause of problems in the software. Coordinating external test teams and gathering information from a wide range of sources is critical.
Good English language skills (written and verbal) are necessary to document features and communicate them to colleagues. IT competence, including use of spreadsheets and database packages, is also required. Above all, Analysts must be avid games players with a willingness to learn and improve their skills. They must be able to demonstrate a detailed knowledge of the industry, and be the “voice” of the Player and to be the advocate for Quality in everything we do, whether it’s for fun or for business.
