Quality Assurance Engineer

Description

The Echo Look team is looking for a highly motivated, creative and passionate Quality Assurance Engineer to come work on a greenfield, gen-1 product!

First with Kindle, and then again with Fire TV and Echo, Amazon has proven their ability to innovate by integrating hardware, software, and content into seamless and easy-to-use services for customers. If you're eager to build a product customers will love and use every day, we're forming a team that thrives in a start-up like environment where flexibility, teamwork, and delivering rock-solid, customer focused solutions on short timelines is paramount.

In this role, you will test mobile and web applications at the user level, both manually and with automated tools. You should be able to understand software internals, debug problems using log files, and write automated tests with Perl/JavaScript and/or user-level test automation tools. You will work with Software Development Engineers to understand features and technical implementation. You will also work with groups such as Product Management, User Experience Design, and Customer Support to understand customer usage models and develop test plans and test suites that approximate real-world environments and regression tests. You will be responsible for driving the software development process toward quality-centric methodologies.

You are highly collaborative, with a proven track record for working closely with teams to influence outcomes and propose well-informed new directions. You think big, and earn trust through regular and precise communication. You have strong analytical skills and a relentless determination to do what is right for customers. You can work with minimal direction and are capable of working quickly while delivering high-quality outputs. You are good at multi-tasking, juggling competing priorities, and organizing yourself.

Join our team and help us launch something new that will truly surprise and delight our customers.

Basic Qualifications

  • 5+ years experience as part of a test team
  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent combination of technical education and work experience
  • Knowledge of QA methodology and tools
