To help solve this problem, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity. We are seeking a Supplier Quality Engineer to review and assess supplier manufacturing procedures, by auditing supplier sites as part of the supplier selection process, as well as to ensure supplier quality meets the agreed-upon requirements with minimum inspection or modification. This role will guarantee all suppliers and the materials provided are in compliance with engineering and R&D specifications.

Employer Description

Amazon is focused on protecting the health and safety of our employees while continuing to serve people who need our services more than ever. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But, for this to work, we as a society would need vastly more testing capacity than is currently available. Unfortunately, today we live in a world of scarcity where COVID-19 testing is heavily rationed. Until we have an effective vaccine available in billions of doses, high-volume testing capacity would be of great help, but getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments.
