I tested games for a living! Working at Rockstar was a growing and humbling experience for me. Before I started I saw it as a stepping stone into the industry, but it's so much more than that. At Rockstar I became a leader, I became a trusted staff member, I became a Role Model and I also achieved the highest bug count numerous times in my own team. At Rockstar I became even hungrier for success, and I understood the meaning of having a solid team of people around you from all over the country, all over the world and from numerous different and amazing backgrounds.
I was also lucky enough to test both Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2!
Whilst working at Rockstar:
- I wrote accurate & comprehensive bug reports.

- Put together excel sheets, word documents and prepared OneNote pages in order to help other employees in the form of wiki sheets and information areas.
