"You will be expected to test our games looking for problems and accurately report errors through our databases to ensure superior game quality before release.

"Successful applicants will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be able to observe attention to detail. You will have good general computer skills and be a confident learner working with word processing, databases and spreadsheets.

So two hands and a head full of dreams, basically. Get involved, fun fans.
