Job Summary:

At Disney, we’re storytellers. We make the impossible, possible. The Walt Disney Company is a world-class entertainment and technological leader. Walt’s passion was to continuously envision new ways to move audiences around the world—a passion that remains our touchstone in an enterprise that stretches from theme parks, resorts and a cruise line to sports, news, movies and a variety of other businesses. Uniting each endeavor is a commitment to creating and delivering unforgettable experiences — and we’re constantly looking for new ways to enhance these exciting experiences.

The Enterprise Technology mission is to deliver technology solutions that align to business strategies while enabling enterprise efficiency and promoting cross-company collaborative innovation. The Enterprise Technology organization drives competitive advantage by enhancing our consumer experiences, enabling business growth, and advancing operational excellence.

SQE provides software verification and validation on IAME applications and services to ensure a high quality customer experience, to protect the Disney brand and to reduce the cost of support.


In contrast to traditional QA organizations, SQE operates as an engineering discipline within the overall software engineering organization with the charter to design, develop and execute test automation. While SQE supports developers as they write unit tests, our primary focus is on test validation & delivery of executables – be it functional or architecture. With that notion, we develop test code & automation for the system/software/architecture-under-test, covering Functional, Contract/SLA, Performance, E2E and Security test areas. Manual testing is highly selective, used in support of one of the following; new functionality that is not ready (i.e. mature/stable) for automation, deprecated legacy code not worth the expense of automating, or exploratory testing to determine if more automation is needed.
