At Amazon Games, our mission is to be the most player and partner-obsessed company in gaming. We're supported by Amazon to pursue bold creative visions, 'find the fun' in our products, ship only when ready, and create extraordinary growth opportunities globally and across all platforms.
We believe in a future where everyone is a gamer and everyone can create, compete, collaborate and connect through games, and we are looking for the right people to help us build that future.
Key job responsibilities
This position will report directly to the head of 2nd and 3rd party Publishing Quality Assurance Manager. In this role, you'll have the opportunity to support the growth of the Quality Assurance organization in the EU region. This position entails supporting the testing effort of one of more titles from start to finish – test planning, test execution, tooling and automation initiatives, leading a diverse team of contract testers, reporting project status and signing off on the release criteria. You will have the opportunity to partner with other disciplines.
The main difference from other Sr. Test Lead roles is that at Amazon Games you will: get involved earlier and make a greater impact on projects; be in a position to help provide guidance on our quality assurance standards from the ground up; and be challenged to step beyond merely testing and truly affect overall quality (i.e. quality assurance). It's an exciting responsibility and a great opportunity for the right candidate.
A typical day for this role is to plan daily test tasks with team members based on current state of the build and requirements of upcoming milestones. This role will guide the efforts of both full time and vendors to develop Quality Assurance scenarios and execute passes. This person will provide guidance as issues arise which impact the daily/weekly Quality Assurance efforts.
About the team
This role will be a key member of the team of Amazon Games, reporting to the Senior QAM and working closely with our franchise team, operations team and the project developer.

This is a hands-on low-ego team that works closely and collaboratively, with a high degree of mutual trust and support. We dive deep as needed in our titles to ensure our customers get the best experience possible.
We are open to hiring candidates to work out of one of the following locations:
- Experience working as a Quality Assurance Engineer
