The tools we build are essential to the software development and release cycle of many Prime Video engineering organizations, and will represent a huge step forward in the sophistication of our approach to automated quality assurance.
Your work on this team will help us address a new dimension of scale our business faces as we deliver our applications on an ever-expanding set of client devices.
