Test Engineer, Lead

The Opportunity:  
When a user tries new software, they expect it to be intuitive and run smoothly. Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful software development—and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, a test engineering expert who knows how to thoroughly test software and work with developers to make sure our team releases the best software possible.  

As a test engineer on our team, you’ll lead your team as they work with testers, developers, and engineers to evaluate software developed for the Veterans Administration, the Army, and national defense. You’ll oversee the creation of a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using automation to streamline, and automated and manual processes, you’ll generate data and implement the test cases to observe how the software performs, then document the results and communicate defects to the development team so they can start improving the tool. You’ll automate continuous security and performance testing. Work with us as we develop software solutions to develop next-generation solutions. 

Join us. The world can’t wait.
