Quality Assurance Engineer

Job ID: 1495052 | Amazon.com Services LLC

DESCRIPTION

Amazon strives to be the world’s most customer-centric company, where customers can research and purchase anything they might want online. We set big goals and are looking for people who can help us reach and exceed them. Kindle is the best-selling product in the history of Amazon.com and our team is responsible for providing the best shopping experience for all the Amazon.com devices and accessories including Kindles, Tablets, Echo, Fire T.V. and much more. We are one of the most innovative and fastest growing businesses at Amazon. You should be passionate about customer experience and the quality of our pages, services, and solutions.

We are looking for talented Quality Assurance Engineers (QAE) who are enthusiastic about QA strategy and execution, cutting-edge technologies, and working in a fast paced dynamic environment. We operate as a startup within Amazon, providing great flexibility in product and technology direction. If you like to drive innovation and are passionate about raising the bar on the customer experience, then this may be the right career move for you!

As a QA Engineer on the team, you will collaborate with developers, product managers and customer support to identify unambiguous software requirements, understand all features and their implementation details, understand customer usage models and then develop and execute plans to get that software into our customers' hands in an efficient fashion with a high degree of confidence in its quality.

Our QAEs understand and implement effective test strategies to assess the quality of the system under test, through effective test planning, test case designing, test execution and automation of those tests. As a QAE on the team you will be a key voice in the design, coding, deployment, and post-deployment phases. You'll implement and own quality gates for code changes, ensuring our users' experience will be continually maintained or improved, while enhancing development experience with earlier and consistent discovery of issues.

Our QAEs are not pure black box testers; they are able to understand the software internals, debug problems using log files, and write automated tests using a variety of frameworks. You will develop high-quality test automation to drive lower operational costs and faster deployments.
