Software Test 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, 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 lead your team as they work with software engineers and aviation SMEs to evaluate software developed for U.S. Air Force and Joint DoD organizations. You’ll oversee the building of a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using automated and manual testing processes and procedures, 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 the health of the software and capabilities integrated into the architecture. This is an opportunity to share your skills with a team as they write the code to test the code. You’ll also broaden your team’s experience in testing software designed for deployment on operational airframes while exploring new areas such as DevSecOps and Machine Learning that will benefit you, your team, and your client. Work with us as we develop software solutions to develop next-generation solutions for weapons systems in the DoD.

Join us. The world can't wait.

You Have:

  • 9+ years of experience with leading the design and execution of software test plans, procedures, scenarios, and scripts according to provided requirements

  • 4+ years of experience with leading testing efforts for modern APIs, Web applications, or Cloud engineering

  • 3+ years of experience with CI/CD pipelines in a DevSecOps environment

  • Experience with testing techniques and test tools

  • Knowledge of both SW and HW integration techniques

  • Ability to analyze test results, detect issues, and track root causes

  • Ability to write and maintain technical documents, including test plans and test reports

  • Ability to manage a technical team and effectively collaborate with developers, customers, and leadership

  • TS/SCI clearance

Nice If You Have:
