QA in Gaming
Bay Area, US
Roblox team approached us for regression testing of their wide genres of games.
With high competition in the market, Roblox had to ensure that the games are released in the market at the right time without defects, as planned by the producer. Hence Roblox was looking for testing 24*7.
- Filed Defects and had constant follow up on reported defects
- Wrote test cases in order to get a better test coverage.
- Helped them in their weekly release by performing smoke and sanity testing on live build just after release.
- We ensured that we addressed their concerns and made them understand our standpoint in terms of their expectations. This enabled us to identify the area of improvements and process enhancements for a seamless delivery. Thus, building a solid rapport with Roblox.

- Created a QA process: Initially, there was no QA process maintained by Roblox.
