Not as much opportunity for SDETs

Software Development Engineer In Test (Current Employee) Seattle, WA

Pros* Exciting projects that have high visibility and use
* Customer-centric focus
* Lots of good software engineer tools and frameworks in place

Cons* Not a whole lot of opportunity for SDET or test career. Sure, there are pockets of them, but I wouldn't count on Amazon as a long term place for a test career. Not uncommon to see the senior test folks eventually leave due to lack of promotion process for them.
* Heavy emphasis on on-call activities with less emphasis on building quality in from the beginning.
* Fairly young engineering management

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you want to attract and KEEP test professionals, hire more test managers and some test VP or Directors to help keep the culture alive.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
