Do you enjoy entertainment and gaming? Do you want to be involved with Xbox releases and technology? Are you experienced in the software development lifecycle? The Xbox Product Services group is seeking a Software Engineer who can step up to the challenge of certifying titles for Xbox and Xbox Live content. This role requires a dependable, self-managed, and versatile individual who can manage the outsourced certification test process in the U.S. region. The position also necessitates ongoing cross-group collaboration with internal and external partners as they approach releases and prepare for certification.

As a Software Engineer in this role, a primary responsibility of this position is working with a test vendor who performs certification testing that validates adherence to Xbox Requirements. The testing has to be performed efficiently and quickly without sacrificing quality of the app, game, or service being certified. In addition, you will support developers by answering questions in email as well as forums regarding their title and whether its design and features adhere to Xbox Requirements.
