Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but build a system that will help defense and intelligence personnel accomplish their mission through secure information sharing? As a software engineer in test, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, Agile environment.

You will collaborate with product management, other engineering teams, operations team, and QA team to develop innovative solutions that meet business needs with respect to functionality, performance, reliability, realistic implementation schedules, and adherence to development goals and principles.
