Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful development—and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need an experienced test engineer like you who knows how to thoroughly test aircraft hardware and software and work to make sure our team releases the best F-35 possible.

Working with government client, you’ll coordinate with instrumentation and software programming personnel for problem fixes and new installation and development. You’ll analyze recorded and calculated test data and assess for quality prior to release to data end-users.

This is an opportunity to supercharge your skills and apply advanced consulting and extensive technical expertise and full industry knowledge. You’ll also broaden your experience as you develop innovative solutions to complex problems and work independently with minimal direction.
