Systems Test Engineer

The Opportunity: 

When a user deploys new software or implements a new system, they expect it to be suitable and effective.  Functionality, reliability, and user experience are key to successful hardware and software system development—and that means rigorous testing. That’s why we need you, a test engineering expert who knows how to thoroughly test system hardware and software and work with operators and developers to make sure our team delivers the best capability possible.   

As a test engineer on our team, you’ll lead your team as they work with system developers and operators to evaluate systems developed to enhance operations to, through and from space for the US Space Force. You’ll oversee the creation of test plans with test cases based on operational requirements and operators' user stories. You’ll generate data and implement the test cases to observe and evaluate system performance, then document the results and communicate defects to the development team so they deliver resilient capability.

This is an opportunity to share your skills with a team as they design and deliver modernized systems and software.  You’ll also broaden your team’s experience in large scale systems test and integration while exploring new areas such as cloud computing and automation that will benefit you, your team, and your client.  

Work with us as we develop systems and software solutions for national security, civil and commercial access to space.
