Job Number:
Test Engineer

The Challenge:

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, an experienced test engineer 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 use your experience to work with developers to evaluate software developed for the USAF and Joint DoD organizations. You’ll build a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using automated and manual processes, you’ll generate data and execute the test cases to see 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 and monitor health of the software and capabilities integrated into the architecture. This is an opportunity to supercharge your skills by writing the code to test the code. You’ll also broaden your experience in DevSecOps as a test engineer in this role and gain skills in new areas such as Test Automation and cloud computing technologies while sharing your testing experience with your team. Work with us as we develop software solutions to deliver next generation solutions for weapons systems in the DoD.
