Test Engineer, Senior

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 has worked with total end-to-end test infrastructure, from source to destination, including provisioning computers, loading with required software, and creating a test thread through an available network infrastructure. 

This is an opportunity to leverage your skills by writing the code to test the code. As a test engineer on our team, you have experience in running Microsoft Windows NT, Unix, and Linux operating systems and in C, C++, Perl, and Python, and conducting component and system integration testing. You also have experience in documenting test procedures and results and in installing and configuring security products. Your feedback will help us improve our tools. You’ll determine what the art of the possible is, what can be done, and then you’ll bring it to life for your clients.

Are you ready to help us combat the most advanced adversaries?
