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 use your experience to work with developers, DevSecOps specialists, and digital engineers to evaluate software developed for advanced digital engineering and AI-enabled capabilities. You’ll create a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using 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 help to automate continuous security and performance testing and monitor the health of custom-built software and capabilities. This is an opportunity to supercharge your skills by writing the code to test. You’ll also broaden your experience in advanced AI and Digital Engineering ecosystems and gain skills in new areas such as Automation, machine learning, and DevSecOps principles while sharing your testing experience with your team.  

Work with us as we develop software solutions to help our clients accelerate their workflows to support DoD engineering and advancement.
