The rumor stork has dropped a little nugget for us today. A job posting on the Contractorindex website mentions the requirement of QA Tester / Game Tester position for Bioware’s upcoming online epic by the foreign office of a large Indian BPO. The description is reproduced below:
Job Title: QA Tester/ Game Tester
Company: Ienergizer, Granada
Date From: 10/2007
Date To: 04/2008
EA/ SONY/ BIOWARE: Star Wars: Knight of Old Republic- Game based application
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic is a massive multiplayer role-playing game (MMORPG) video game by BioWare and Lucas Arts collaboration. My job as a leading team member to perform testing on different layers of the build like functional, regression, Smoke, BVT, Ad hoc, Frame rate, Graphic, System testing using V model methodology. Creation of test cases, checklists sending daily and weekly reports to manage includes bug reporting.
A google search of iEnergizer reveals that it is a BPO based in Noida with offices abroad. I wonder if this means we’ll find some easter eggs in the game that can only be enjoyed by us folk (shall we say, Indian exclusive Easter Eggs?).
I wonder if anyone here works for or has heard of iEnergizer.
Thanks to the rumor stork for the heads up.
