If so keep reading!
You already know that Amazon is home to millions of sellers, managing hundreds of millions of products worldwide and processing thousands of transactions per second. Our brands and sellers are a critical part of our consumer business and their numbers are growing daily, so we take a lot of pride and care in the tech that powers it all. But did you know that there is a team that aims to raise the quality bar with every release we our developer make? A team that is seen as a critical resource and seeks to ensure that developers have the right tools to produce exceptional quality code that has been thoroughly tested…
We are the Strategic Testing and Quality Services (STaQS) team under Selling Partner Services and we have a single mission: To empower engineers to build better code. Our portfolio includes powerful testing services that offer solutions to massive developer pain points such as:
· Robust service mocking tools loved by Amazonians across various teams (Alexa, AWS, Kindle, …) that help simplify UI, load and integration tests and ensure that pipelines remain unblocked
· Intelligent services that create valuable test data using predictive algorithms to help ensure that we know what our customers need before they request it and that it is readily available on demand
· Critical services that support executing test cases in prod allowing us to recreate and investigate scenarios in a real production environment while remaining compliant to tax and legal regulations, cause no impact to customers and provide great value and ease of use to Amazon developers
These are just some of the pillars our engineers have built that support and are loved by a variety of teams across all of Amazon in their efforts to raise code quality and honestly it is just the start. We also take pride in our low operational burden, healthy team dynamic… oh and commuting to Bellevue isn’t bad either ;)
We are currently looking for a passionate software engineer to build the next generation of our innovative tools and technologies as we continue to expand our offerings to engineers across Amazon. The right engineer will have a strong hunger for learning and be able to combine strong technical skills with customer obsession to deliver high quality software that benefits Amazon's engineers and ultimately provides a better experience for our customers globally.
