Live in Boise, Idaho? Want to Test Games?

Well, turns out my company may be opening up a site in Boise, Idaho over the summer for a big project.

No experience necessary, entry level, minimum wage (to start), temp summer job from mid-/late June till September but you'll be working on a AAA game and have a chance to learn the science of software testing which is surprisingly rare in this sort of position.

We have some higher level positions if you have some experience but not many.

Games are software, if somewhat specialized, and testing software is a science with techniques and methodologies which can be trained and effectively applied. It's just that so few game companies bother to do so because they themselves have never learned these things or at least not formally enough to apply them with any sort of reliability. Opportunities to learn this science will be made available at this site.

If things work out then the site may survive past the summer and some positions may become permanent but I'll burn down that bridge when I get to it.

I can help by telling you that everything sucks. That helps, right?

Constructive critique. Means most of the people in this cesspit are out of the running already.

I'm hoping to catch the eye of the lurkers who haven't been driven off by the Racist, Alt-Right, Intolerant, Nazi, Trump ass-kissers we have around here.

Your first post was a much better sales pitch than the second, lol. Might want to check the bipolar med dosage?

Good luck. From the first post, sounds like a decent opportunity for a young, hard working go-getter...who I hope will get off my lawn, lol!

I figure anyone who lurks and is afraid of everyone here might be comforted by such a message. Other people who know me will know I speak with the sarcasm.

People from Idaho will likely be more on the right, except for Californicators, and will call me a snowflake and apply to make my life hell, but Surprise, it is all about the reverse psychology!

Keep in mind I did QA for Activision for like 10 years. Heh.

I was one of the developers for Interstate '76, Heavy Gear and Battlezone.

No wonder you are so bitter.

Activision and EA are the biggest proponents of equipping people with Mt. Dew drips and stuffing a nacho cheese tubes under the door of the QA lab and locking people in for a month until games were "tested".

If someone is afraid of a post on a message board simply for it not agreeing with their political beliefs, they should prolly just go ahead and end themselves really, life is too hard for them already at that point.
