QA Tester (m/f/d)

Full Time | Hamburg, Germany

For more than 15 years Deep Silver FISHLABS has been creating compelling games that have been brought to life on millions of screens across the globe. We joined the Deep Silver / Koch Media family in late 2013 and, since then, we have continuously raised the quality bar. Today, we are one of three internal development studios run by our parent company, alongside Deep Silver Volition in the US and Deep Silver Dambuster Studio in the UK.

We specialize in high-end 3D games for consoles and PC. With a strong development history and award-winning portfolio of mobile games; such as blockbuster space-action shooter Galaxy on Fire: Manticore and the tactical zombie brawler Dead Island: Survivors; we are currently developing thrilling titles for the PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Every ambitious mission needs excellent pros. People like you!

Your Crew

Our 5-strong QA not only works very closely with each other but because of our approach of "Embedded QA" each tester is also completely integrated into the development team. Besides being embedded into different production teams, the QA strives to stay closely connected, to learn from each other and optimize our work. For us, QA is not only about finding and reporting bugs but also about making sure that our games are actually fun to play. Responsibility and making own decisions is not only very welcome but required.
