Job Description

Are you an SDET or quality-minded SDE who's up for a challenge? Have we got a deal for you!

The People Technology team acts as Amazon's circulatory system: we gather and pump employee data to and from myriad services and sources, data that must flow seamlessly to support the employment of hundreds of thousands of Amazon workers around the globe. We integrate HR, Payroll, Recruiting, and Timekeeping, interfacing with over two hundred systems.

As Amazon expands and grows, People Tech systems are getting more complex; consistent quality is essential. The Quality Assurance Engineer we're hiring will tackle and solve test problems of optimization, performance, and scalability. Technologies we're testing range from 3rd-party ERP to middleware to front-end UI.


We're looking for SDETs who are hungry to build things from scratch, who can bring next-generation test automation technologies into a fresh new space. We're looking to move fast; our SDETs will implement test frameworks and pipelines, then train up Dev teams in their care and maintenance so that continuous quality can be self-sustaining. SDETs will implement automatic data collection for use in live quality dashboards. Want a challenge where you can Think Big? You'll be able to engage with multiple internal teams on collaborative automation solutions, helping People Tech drive toward seamless, trustworthy employee data integrations. Be a key part of delivering a great user experience to Amazon employees and recruiters all over the globe.

Core responsibilities will include:
  • Project test plan creation and execution.
  • Gathering and reporting relevant and actionable metrics.
  • Enforcing, auditing, and streamlining software test and delivery processes.
  • Collaborating with dev teams and your team peers to identify and prioritize opportunities for automation.
  • When you're ready, start mentoring junior engineers so they can become as good as you are.
