What will you help us create?
The AVS Voice SDK and Smart Screen SDK, in conjunction with the Alexa Voice Service (AVS) in the cloud, enable developers to integrate Alexa directly into their products, bringing the convenience of voice control to any connected device!
This is a high visibility program, with far reaching impact across all products using the SDK, and is also a new QA team. We would be leveraging a common automation infrastructure and implementing the correct integration hooks and testcases to ensure we're raising the bar on quality across our products. We need to adhere to strict guidelines for quality, customer experience, performance, and latency. All of these constraints provide unique challenges to the team. As a lead SDET in the team you would have opportunity to build upon a new framework and help QA build consistent and reliable automation suite for both SDKs.
We are looking for a self-motivated and highly technical SDET to join our team to help us achieve the mission of consistent and reliable automation coverage across both SDKs and ship high quality feature simultaneously across first party and third party platforms.
As a Software Development Engineer in Test on this team, you will be leading test automation and infrastructure development, test new design and architectural choices which have a significant impact on our systems, our business and most importantly, our customers. You will be working directly with Developers, QA Engineers and Product Managers to ensure quality development and quality of our applications and platforms. We are working with exciting new technologies and solving complex automation problems across different operating systems. If you are creative, customer focused, have a passion for QA and test automation and enjoy working in a fast paced environment, this team is right for you.
