Amazon Lab126 is an inventive research and development company that designs and engineers high-profile consumer electronics. Lab126 began in 2004 as a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc., originally creating the best-selling Kindle family of products. Since then, we have produced groundbreaking devices like Fire tablets, Fire TV and Amazon Echo. What will you help us create?
Our Multimedia QA team works to ensure multimedia FireOS components - audio, video and DRM are bug free on Amazon’s FireTV and Fire Tablet devices. The team also works on various developer tools, and media players to better enable Amazon’s partners in their quest to develop applications for these devices. The ultimate goal is to ensure Amazon’s customers have the best possible multimedia (Audio, Video, DRM and 3P app) experience across all applications and devices produced by Amazon.
Achieving this means working closely with our Amazon-external partners (Netflix, Hulu, HBO, etc.), Amazon-internal partners (FireOS team, Amazon Video, etc.) and Multimedia Developers owning Audio, Video and DRM components in FireOS. A key element of this work is in testing these applications (and other internal features and tools) and components to spot any quality escapes resulting from application changes or platform changes. For this we need Software QA Engineers with experience in multimedia (Audio, Video, DRM).
Software QA Engineers work with Software Development Engineers to understand features and technical implementations. Software 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. Software QA Engineers are also responsible for driving the software development process toward quality-centric methodologies.
