Amazon Game Studios in Lake Forest, CA is looking for a Software Development Engineer in Test to join our team to make world-class games for a variety of emerging platforms. You will work with the entire team to make their lives better, streamline their workflow, and help build better quality games at a faster pace. If you want the fun and feel of a startup company, but the solid management and resources of a Fortune 100 company, then it’s time to tell that comfortable, unchallenging, boring job to hit the road and join our game studio!
The primary responsibility of the SDET is to work with the team, providing new and improved tools to maximize iteration and validate the functionality of the game. The SDET will design, iterate, and execute on a variety of tools and pipelines, and will also write tests and validation suites.
Specifically, you will:

Design, develop, and own various tools ranging from content creation tools to data visualizers to game editors to test modes to automated build and test frameworks
Maintain and support existing and new infrastructure
Independently identify the bottlenecks for content creators and improve team efficiency
Understand sources of bugs and write stress tests and unit tests to eliminate them
Help contribute to game design and quality through making more things possible
If you are that person, then this is your dream opportunity! We’re a team making high-profile games with the weight of Amazon behind us. You’ll be working with a small group of engineers so you should expect to be wearing lots of different hats from project to project. Along with the rest of the team, you'll thrive in an ambiguous environment, and will relentlessly focus on delighting our customers as the #1 priority. Our practice is that we regularly collaborate by sitting together and sharing ideas as we work; and we interact with many, many teams across Amazon and its subsidiaries as we pursue our mission to make great games.
We are a fast-growing company working in an exciting space. If you want to be a part of that, apply now.
We offer excellent pay, generous stock and bonus plans, great benefits including medical, dental, vision, 401k with matching, and more.
