Who we are

The future of digital experiences is not a single app. It's a network of millions of virtual worlds and digital experiences people visit to play games, socialize and collaborate. Today, most of those experiences are closed and disconnected walled gardens.

Ready Player Me is a cross-game avatar platform for developers, players, and leading brands. We're on a mission to break down the virtual walls to enable more open and connected worlds, and any digital experience.

We started 2021 with 24 companies using our avatar system, and we are now trusted by over 9,000 games, apps, and leading brands.

Present and future

We are backed by top investors like Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Plural, David Baszucki, co-founder of Roblox, Justin Kan, co-founder of Twitch, Sebastian Knutsson & Riccardo Zacconi, King Games co-founders, Konvoy Ventures, Endeavor and Samsung Next among many others.

Our team has built avatar systems for companies like Tencent, Huawei, HTC, and Verizon since 2014. We are working with well-known brands like Warner Bros, Adidas, Tommy Hilfiger, Dior, New Balance, and RTFKT.

With more than 9,000 developers and millions of users, Ready Player Me is the world's leading avatar platform, offering tools and services for developers to integrate into their games, apps, and virtual worlds. Users can customize their avatars to reflect their personal style and individuality and use them across thousands of interoperable worlds.

Come join us on this exciting journey and play a key role in shaping the future of how we represent ourselves in games and virtual worlds, while breaking down those virtual walls!

About you:

We are looking for a passionate and skilled Quality Asuurance Engineer to join our our Engineering organization!

  • You'll champion a "quality first" approach within the engineering team. Your expertise will guide the team through the software development lifecycle, ensuring modern testing practices are applied.
  • You'll automate routine testing tasks and introduce tools to enhance team productivity. You'll also continuously refine the QA process for optimal results.

  • 2+ years of experience as a versatile QA generalist.
  • Familiarity with automated testing frameworks like Selenium or Cypress.
  • Proficiency in API testing tools such as Postman or Insomnia.

  • Worked in a Startup or Scaleup before.
