You'll have some quality assurance or technical experience, such as testing client/server applications or desktop/mobile/web clients, providing production support, investigating application logs, or experience with a programming language or SQL.

You'll need a post-secondary degree, preferably with a background in computer science, mathematics, or a related field. Along with this, you'll be curious by nature, passionate about poker and quality assurance, and willing to contribute to finding defects before our customers do.
