    • You thrive on cross-functional collaboration. You have excellent communication skills and can translate objectives and concerns between different teams, creating greater alignment between all the stakeholders on a project
    • You are self-motivated. You proactively look for solutions to bridge the needs of the business with technology
    • You have strong analytical skills. You are adept at analyzing data to gain insights that drive improvements in app quality

What skills are important to us?

    • Experience writing automated tests and using them to power short feedback cycles in a continuous integration environment
    • Experience with Unity or Unreal and automated testing of plugins and bindings in those environments (other game engines a plus)
