  • Job Description

    The Amazon Key Team is inventing and implementing pioneering initiatives for Amazon deliveries and services. We are laser focused on enhancing customer experience through next generation technologies, and are seeking exceptional, entrepreneurial quality assurance engineers to help drive this mission.

    We are looking for exceptional Quality Assurance Engineer who will be part of a start-up group that is defining and building cutting-edge products and services capabilities supporting Amazon’s current and future delivery initiatives. You will have an opportunity to contribute your creative ideas and energy to our group! If you join our team, you will be working on difficult problems at scale and will have autonomy to deliver. You will learn about real-time adaptive transportation solutions, optimizations, operating on a large scale and will be working on cutting edge technologies.

    If you’re looking for an opportunity to make a big, innovative impact on a global business with a startup culture, we’re looking for you.

    In this role you will be responsible for using black box, gray box, and white box testing techniques; you will need to understand software internals, debug problems using log files, and write automated tests and/or user-level test automation tools. QA Engineers work with Software Development Engineers to understand features and technical implementation. QA Engineers 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. QA Engineers are also responsible for driving the software development process toward quality-centric methodologies. Not to mention, we have a lot of fun.

    We care about your career growth, too. Once you join the team, you and your manager will jointly craft a career plan and you’ll review it regularly to ensure you’re on track to meet your goals. Whether your goals are to explore new technologies, take on bigger problems, and get to the next level, we’ll help you get there. Our business is growing fast, and our team will grow with it!
