OUR ideal job is the one we have created for ourselves. But if you’re still looking for a gig, and you play video games a ton — to the disgruntlement of your parents, we presume — your dream job is currently up for grabs. Ubisoft Philippines is hiring full-time testers, per the company’s official Facebook page.

Yep. One of the biggest game publishers on the planet, with franchises such as Assassin’s Creed, Rainbow Six, and Watch Dogs under its belt, is looking for people to play its forthcoming titles — and get paid (perhaps even handsomely) for doing so.

As a game tester, one will be tasked with routinely identifying bugs and issues, trying to replicate them, and checking to see if the fixes applied in subsequent game versions are working as intended. Or in other words, playing the heck out of a particular game until the kinks are ironed out. The work can be tedious and repetitive, but on the plus side, you get to play video games all day.

And — and this is important — you get to answer the question, “What do you do for work?” with the coolest of responses. Try not to overdo the enthusiasm.
