This role will form part of a team of highly-skilled developers and 3D artists working on cutting edge, virtual reality training products for the medical field. You will be testing real-world simulations with the opportunity to solve interesting problems while gaining experience in virtual reality.

We want someone that has great attention to detail and champions excellence. The products we build are going to be supported for the long term so we are looking for someone methodical, who has the patience and skill to locate and document the cause of any issues. Great communication is essential, both written and verbal.

Our focus is on building simulations for training purposes. We aim to build simulations with as much freedom as possible that don’t judge whether the user is right or wrong. This means we need to test a wide variety of activities in virtual reality, making sure that our users stay immersed in the simulations.

This role is for 20 hours a week.

Here is what you will be doing:

  • Working with an agile development team to test, maintain, and expand existing products and develop new ones.
  • Testing features across virtual reality and desktop applications ensuring that the features match the acceptance criteria and any edge cases are well considered.
  • Developing and maintaining a testing framework across our suite of applications.
  • Automating as many tests as possible.
  • Documenting and reporting bugs and working with the software developers and 3D artists to resolve them.

Skills and Qualifications


  • 3+ years of professional software testing experience.
  • A solid background in both automated and manual testing, with proven skills using recognised testing tools
  • Great communication skills, both with other developers and with people from other disciplines.
  • Enjoy working in a collaborative team environment
  • Excellent problem-solving skills.


  • Experience working in an agile team
  • Experience testing in C# or Unity applications.
  • Experience testing VR products.
  • Software development (coding) experience.

We are an equal opportunities employer committed to diversity and inclusion, offering a respectful work environment free from discrimination and harassment.

This position will require you to legally work in New Zealand.

What’s in it for you?

  • Work on products that are on the bleeding edge of virtual training and are making a difference in people’s lives.
  • Very little context switching, we work on the same product for weeks at a time so you can really get down and focus on one domain.
  • Work in a team where everyone’s contribution is valued.
  • Work on globally recognised EdTech products.
  • Get great virtual reality experience
