Amazon Games is seeking a Quality Assurance Engineer to develop and maintain automated test solutions for a variety of products created by the engineering teams our QA team supports. These products include (but are not limited to) retail web pages, a client-side application used to distribute and play video games, and their associated technologies.
In this role, you will help design and define our testing processes. You will develop repeatable and automatable testing systems. You will work closely with leads from engineering, product, and user experience in order to understand features and technical implementation. For new products and features, you will identify use cases, create test plans, and create automated test cases in order to report to stakeholders on the quality and reliability of our products. For existing products and features, you will identify (and convert) manual test cases which should be converted into automated test cases. You will think creatively about how to break the software.
