Gram Games is the studio behind some of the most popular titles like 1010!, Six! and Merge Dragons! We also released Merge Magic! and have more awesome projects in the pipeline.

We’ll never ask you to abandon your craft and just focus on managing others or workload. 

At Gram everyone is expected to have a razor-sharp focus on what creates tangible impact: impact on their team, impact on their work environment and impact on the overall company strategy. If you are motivated by autonomy, constant improvement, collaboration and the sense of belonging, this is the job for you.

This is an excellent opportunity to pave the way in the gaming world for a more agile shift left approach. Working in Gram’s Infrastructure team that supports multiple studios your focus will be developing and maintaining automation frameworks, and supplementing the QA team’s script writing.

  • Manage the suites of automated tests and when they trigger on the build machines
  • Implement, collect and organise test artefacts that are output from automated tests
  • Create automated reports for pass/fail rates, reliability etc. 
  • Diagnose and manage failing tests, and categorise common failure reasons
  • Coach and mentor the QA team to utilise the automation frameworks 
  • Evangelise the attention of failed automated tests with the wider team
  • Evangelise the adoption of automated testing amongst Gram Dev teams
  • A SME and point of contact for automation within your team
  • Proactively identify where automated testing can add value to game feature development
