Q. What sorts of jobs are available at Testronic?

Q. Why choose a career in testing?
Testing is the most important stage in program development. The reason a program is put through to test stage is so that issues can be identified and rectified. Developing an application without testing it is merely a paper exercise – it may work or it may not, but there is no way of knowing without testing it! The most worrying part of not testing a program is that, even the smallest mistake in a program can cause devastating results.
Q. What benefits do Testronic provide?
Testronic’s employee policies vary by territory, but wherever you are in the world, we pride ourselves on being a considerate employer offering an enviable package of benefits.

Both Poland and the UK offer subsidised gym membership. In Belgium, team members are offered meal vouchers, hospitalisation insurance and more, depending on the project.

In Belgium, we operate an extensive career plan which is designed to stimulate team members to grow towards a specialist function or team leadership and coordination function. In turn, this means that our testers are educated and trained in all fields of QA and business areas.
Each site has interesting tales of social outings from paintballing at the US office to go karting and a River Boat cruise in Europe! At all of our global locations, you’d be joining dynamic teams in a fast-moving industry, and you can be sure of a warm welcome.
Q. Where are your offices?
We are based across various global locations – Burbank, California, in the US, Central London in the UK, Diepenbeek in Belgium, Warsaw in Poland, and Tokyo in Japan.
We serve our clients either from one of our locations or at their designated site therefore, certain roles will require a flexibility to work either away from the office or abroad.
Q. I have my own console and PC. Can I test Games from home?
No. We primarily work on projects in the early stages of development which can only be handled in our high-security facilities.
Q. What does the role of a Games Tester entail?
A games tester, plays a specific part of a game (according to a test plan provided by the Coordinator), finds “bugs” (errors in how the game works or what the text says), and reports them (describes the error and where it was found), so that the developer can recreate it and fix it. You don’t need to be an expert at playing games to test, though enjoying it might help – and we’ll teach you all about it!
Q. I’m applying for a QA Localization Technician role – how good do my language skills need to be?
All of our QA Localization Technicians are experts in both English and the language they are recruited to test. We set the highest standards for QA and Localization, so the skills have to match. You’ll be required to take a test in the chosen language and will need to be at a proficient level in order to pass. These high benchmarks are what reassure our clients and embed quality in what we do.
