Video game company Rockstar is behind arguably one of the biggest video games franchises in history: Grand Theft Auto.

It's also responsible for the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2, which was released last year to rave reviews.

It also produced other legendary hits like Bully, LA Noire, Manhunt and Max Payne. But imagine if it was your job to play these games before anyone else did?

Well Rockstar is looking for a games tester in its Lincoln office in England. According to the website, the company is looking for someone who can:

"[Test] various games and applications across all platforms, quickly learning and mastering each one.

"[Carry] out accurate examination and revision of reported issues. [Provide] critical analysis and feedback in report form, clearly and concisely. [Retain] the knowledge needed to set up all platforms quickly and effectively.

"And [participate] in a close-knit, friendly atmosphere, sharing ideas, helping others when needed."

Ok, so pretty much, be older than 18, be badass at playing video games, beat them quickly, spot any glitches and be a nice person. Simple.


Why wouldn't you want to work on one of the bestselling video game companies of all time?

Sales of Rockstar's latest open-worlder, Red Dead Redemption 2, smashed the figures of previous entries in the Wild West series, and then some.

Since releasing worldwide on 26 October, the game has shipped well in excess of 17 million copies, and generated some $725 million of revenue in its debut weekend alone.

In a financial report released last year, Rockstar's owners Take-Two Interactive stated that RDR2 shipped more copies in its first eight days than Red Dead Redemption did in eight years.


Then you've got the classic, widely successful Grand Theft Auto franchise, which is the fourth best performing game series of all time.

But obviously the game hasn't avoided criticism for a number of reasons including glorifying violence. The Guinness Book of World Records Gamers Edition in 2008 and 2009 claimed there are more than 4,000 articles on the game - making it the most controversial of all time.

The company has also had to fend off several lawsuits.

In 2003, the families of two people shot by teens claimed that the shooters were inspired by the game to go on a rampage. But Rockstar hit back saying: "Ideas and concepts as well as the 'purported psychological effects' on the Buckners are protected by the First Amendment's free-speech clause."

So if you're keen to test games and get paid for it then click here to sign up.
