Learning from each other so directly means the optimization of the games. Responsibility and making own decisions is not only very welcome but required.

To then verify that reported bugs have been fixed and implemented correctly is also one of your tasks. As an experienced hands-on tester you will furthermore provide feedback to Programmers and Game Designers to make sure things end up just fine.
