Job Summary
AmTote International is seeking a Quality Assurance (QA) Engineer to implement/manage (or build) a test automation framework for a mobile software project.  The incumbent will analyze mobile application requirements, implement or develop a test automation strategy, and build automated acceptance tests as part of an AGILE SAFe software engineering team. The QA Engineer will spend most of their time “building tests”, not “testing builds manually” although some manual testing may be required due to the nature of mobile devices; this is predominately an engineering position, not a manual testing position (think 80% automation development/20% manual testing).

Beyond development, the QA Engineer will serve as the quality advocate for the team, vetting requirements during design, breaking other engineers’ designs and code via tests, and defining quality-related metrics by which to measure the code/feature base.  QA Engineers also assist with stylistic and design decisions, and collaborate with application engineers, product managers, stakeholders, designers, etc. as part of a communal development team.  The Quality Engineer reports to the Director of Quality Assurance.

If you have an attention to details and are driven to ensure an excellent gaming experience, we want to hear from you. Throughout AmTote we have satisfied employees, offer a positive work environment, encourage training & development and we have a strong team spirit giving employees a sense of unity.
