Job Description

The Amazon Business team is seeking a QAE who want to disrupt the way businesses institutions purchase their supplies. Our team is focused on building solutions to enable business customers to research, discover and buy business, industrial and scientific products in large catalogs; across multiple devices, marketplaces and regions. Our customers include individual professionals, businesses and institutions that buy in either high frequency or in bulk quantities.

Your will be part of a team that is responsible for all aspects of the customer experience - from the visual interface to the back end services.

QAE work with Software Development Engineers to understand features and technical implementation. QAE should also work with groups such as Product Management, User Interaction, and Customer Support to understand customer usage models and develop test plans and suites that approximate real-world environments and regression tests and driving the software development process towards quality-centric methodologies.
