IV&V Test Automation Engineer, Mid

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 work with engineers to evaluate software developed for national defense. You’ll work on building a test plan with test cases based on user stories. Using automation to streamline, 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 an architecture governance process. This is an opportunity to leverage your skills by writing the code to test the code. You’ll also further your experience in cybersecurity and explore new areas like automation and cloud computing.

Work with us as we develop software solutions to secure our defense networks.
