Job Summary
AmTote International is seeking a Quality Assurance (QA) Engineer to build a test automation framework for a large software project.  The incumbent will analyze system functionality, develop a testing framework, and build automated acceptance tests in said framework as part of an AGILE SAFe software engineering team. The QA Engineer will spend time “building tests”, not “testing builds manually”; this is an engineering position, not a manual testing position.  

Beyond development, the QA Engineer will serve as the quality advocate for the team, vetting requirements during design, breaking other engineers’ code via tests, and defining quality-related metrics by which to measure the code/feature base.  QA Engineers also assist with architecture 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.
