Lead QA Engineer


Challengermode is an esports platform where gamers meet to compete and socialize around the biggest computer and console games in the world. Our mission is to make esports as accessible for non-professional gamers as regular sports are for regular people. That's why we're building a digital gaming arena for the 21st century. Large and small scale, national or international competitions at their very best. A virtual ball park in everyone's backyard.


We're a Stockholm based tech startup working on an esports platform that offers the most accessible competitive gaming experience for professional and non-professional gamers alike. Working closely with game developers, brands and tournament organizers, we provide an esports platform built to combat a growing disconnect within the esports industry.
