With AWS, you can requisition compute power, storage, and many other services gaining access to a suite of elastic IT infrastructure services as your business demands them. AWS is the leading platform for designing and developing applications for the cloud and is growing rapidly with hundreds of thousands of companies worldwide on the platform.
AWS' growth is driving a rapid expansion of its world-wide sales team, which in turn drives the growth of the WWRO-CRM team that supports them. AWS is for a Quality Assurance Engineer to help the test and release strategy for a critical new initiative at the heart of the CRM solutions used by the AWS. We're handling massive scale, providing strategic data that drives the AWS business internally and supporting one of the largest field sales organizations in the world. This initiative not only has critical business impact, it also will be the key driver for multiple new technology programs.
Quality Assurance Engineers at Amazon test cutting edge applications and products at the user level and code level, both manually and with automated tools. Our QAEs are not pure black box testers, they are able to understand software internals, debug problems using log files, and write automated tests with scripting tools and/or user-level automated tools. QAEs at Amazon are excellent individual contributors capable of taking up tasks from start to completion with minimal help. QAEs are responsible to understand the product domain, define test strategy and test plans, develop and drive test case execution and drive best practices to release high quality software to our customers.
You will work with Software Development Engineers to understand features and technical implementation. You will also work with groups such as Product Management, UX designers to understand customer usage models and develop test plans and suites that approximate real-world environments and regression tests driving the software development process toward quality-centric methodologies. You will develop automated tests to help fasten testing cycles and release faster to our customers. In this role, you will be responsible to deliver high efficient/effective solutions to test customer facing features.
If you enjoy broadening your technical skills, building a new tool or process, and working in an environment that thrives on creativity, experimentation, and innovation, then this is the job for you!
