What We Do

The Quality Assurance team owns the testing process, risk management, and quality evaluation of all products and functions across Epic. Our team works closely with developers and production to ensure the best possible user experience for our community and customers.

What You'll Do

We are a new and growing team at Epic, aiming to build innovative new experiences and technology as part of our collaboration with Disney. Our SDETs are, first and foremost, software programmers; they act as force multipliers for quality efforts across the business by providing tools, frameworks, coaching, and education. As we continue to grow a world-class technical organization within Quality Assurance, we are looking for an SDET Manager to act as the first SDET in our collaboration with Disney, defining and building out the automation framework and team necessary for our long-term success.

In this role, you will

  • Develop automation frameworks from the ground up, making decisions on what and where to prioritize while developing team structures necessary to expand your efforts
  • Collaborate with QA and Development teams to craft automation processes that are robust, reliable, and easy to use
  • Build relationships and partnerships with internal customers and stakeholders across the company
  • Influence the vision for the wider SDET organization at Epic
  • As the team grows, you will mentor, coach, and develop a team of SDETs at various career stages
  • Maintain excellent technical practices e.g. refactoring, minimizing technical debt, and unit testing, with a focus on continuous improvement
  • Develop tools for tester augmentation, backward compatibility, and performance stability

What we're looking for

  • Excellent leadership skills, including mentorship, planning technical roadmaps, making trade-offs, and prioritization
  • Good knowledge of how game engines work; Experience with either UE4/Unity or a custom internal game engine
  • Ability to architect solutions for development and QA when solutions do not exist within the space required
  • Experience developing systems and tools that enhance the experience or capabilities of internal partner teams
  • Experience with automation frameworks and continuous integration systems
  • Ability to quickly understand complex tech stacks and find solutions that complement/extend rather than bypass existing investments
